The Firehide idea came to me when I got some Testors Model Master Stop Light Red paint.
I had never used this color and didn't stir it properly so it came out as a kind of burgundy.
Free-hand painted the flames on hood and sides.
I made extended exhaust stacks and step rails out of polymer clay and airbrushed them with chrome paint.
Also added tow hooks and grapple made of wire and apoxy clay.
Constructed and painted a fire extinguisher that transforms into a gun.
Added my own custom made GMC decals. Painted the fuel tank/weapons in a worn metal motif and added faded "Danger" signs by hand.
Detailed the tail lights to correct colors based on the photos of the real truck.
Added a high gloss clear-coat on body of the truck.
