1990s Aston Martin DB7
This is a small diecast Maisto model in 1:40th scale of a 1990s Aston Martin DB7 that I found at a thrift shop for a mere $1.21. The casting was fine, but it lacked much in the way of detailing, so I blackwashed the front grilles, blackened all the window trim, the rear view mirror , the windshield wipers, painted the amber taillights red, painted the floor, car seats and steering wheel. Also, painted the turn signals and running lights and added a gear shift lever. Sure made a huge difference in its appearance.

Thanks for looking...
