A Custom '40 Ford Truck by Hotwheels

This was my first time attempting to make a BWF custom diecast.
It was for my friend Benjie. I designed his avatar and placed it
on this truck, he supplied me with the printed decals. It took almost
4 coats of top coat just to lessen the thickness that was visible
when you apply white decals on a diecast. One thing with white decal paper
is that when you cut the edge where there is ink or design,
be sure to cut the underside so to lessen the cracks it will make
on the printed side.
