Lesney #16c Scammell Slowplow Restoration

I got this one from a friend on one of the diecast forums for free, promising him I'd restore it! So here it is. It was a pretty straightforward restoration. He gave me a second snowplow to use for parts. It was in much worse shape but had a blade that was in better shape. This one looked good on the surface, but was pretty broken up behind the blade. Here's how it looked when I got it:

And after I got finished with it:

I used metallic silver automotive touch up paint for the cab, chassis, and blade. Definitely not original, but I like the look. The Krylon orange paint matches the original pretty well. Decals came from Rick's Toybox
