The Dragon kit was built virtually out of the box with the addition of an aerial and flag. While not based off a specific photo, a generic standard camo scheme was applied, athough the colours are authentic.

The Arabic grafitti on the side reads "Allah Akbar" (God is Great!), and was handpainted as are the rego plates. Airbrushed
dust and pastels finished the paint job. The backdrop of burning oil fires was airbrushed onto a large sheet of cardboard.
