Starting with a Centralia Car Shops CE1 / CE2 Santa Fe waycar model, Santa Fe markings and numbers are masked and overpainted. Prototype-specific details such as scratch-built jeweled marker lights are added. The model is then lettered with custom printed decals from artwork and fonts generated to match prototype photos. Details such as window frames are hand painted.
