Does anybody here do or know somebody who does custom painting on models? I have a cousin who has an '02 Harley truck that is totally custom. It's painted black, with a purple tribal flame design on the front end. His birthday is coming up.

I was browsing eBay and I see that Dub City is making a 1/24 scale F150 super cab truck in black. It is lowered, like his truck, and has 24's like his does too. So I though, if somebody could paint that model to look like his truck, it would blow him away.

I have a picture that I can email (I asked him for a couple more). The purple tribal flames go over the hood and front fenders, and the front bumper is all purple. Can it be done? Can anybody here do it for me?

Here is the Dub City model:

Thanks!

There is a magazine in the racks at Borders that is called Scale Auto that will have places that do custom work.

Did you go to one of those airbrush artists that do T-shirts in the mall? They may be able to help you. You also support someone local to yourself.
