I still need to do the wiring for the tail lights to the connector but that's no biggie.  I'm fairly pleased with that for a first attempt at weathering as I had no real idea about what i was doing. I think it may need a little more dust and grime underneath though. I'll think about it.

Have a good Christmas guys,
Cheers

Thanks Ben.

 

 

Hi guys,

 

Final update before Xmas.

Still tweaking the body so it's on to the trailer. I wanted to do it with a worn but not excessively corroded look. The 1:1 was never damaged beyond any chips and scratches so at least I didn't have to show any sheet metal damage and I could just keep it to creative paint work. Not having done any serious weathering on anything it was all uncharted territory for me but I love jumping in the deep end so here's how it went.

This is where it started a long time ago.

Using these,

Some practice on a spoon to give me an idea of what to do.

Then I got into it.

I sprayed the AK worn effects fluid on the top and side surfaces and the heavy chipping fluid to the underside and after that was dry I mixed MRHobby gold acrylic with Windex window cleaner, 1 part of gold to 1 part Windex and shot it through the airbrush straight over the chipping fluid and the rust colour primer. I think it came out as a fairly accurate hammer finish gold.

I used these simple tools to slowly wear away the top layer of paint.

After the chipping was done it was time to hit it with several different rust colour washes and pigments.

While I had the airbrush out I did the Alclad parts for both cars.

And finished the wheels.

That's it for now.

   Hi guys, here's a re-post of my last update after the loss of the previous one.

 

I wanted to get some painting done during a time of perfect painting conditions but I still needed to do some work on how the windows fit to the body so I decided to clean off one of the interior sets and do the whole interior for the curbside version.

 

Here is what I am aiming for. The pics aren't of the actual car I am modelling but a similar one. The colour in the pics is a little washed out so I went by memory of the 1:1.

I am using Vallejo paints for the first time. I bought several shades of brown/tan/beige and mixed up 3 shades of tan/beige for the interior.

The tub was painted and flocked and the speakers, floor mat and pedals added.

The door cards were painted and were given a light wash of light brown.

The centre console.

The rear seat was painted and assorted belts and buckles were added. The stripes on the seats were individually masked and brush painted.

The finished dash with photo etch keys in the ignition.

The front seats had all the gaps and dips filled before painting and 3 coats of off white flocking were added to replicate the sheep skin seat covers the 1:1 car had.

I can't re-update my Falcon workbench thread. Every time I click on the Preview Post or Post buttons it takes me back to the forum main page with no update in my thread. Any advice?
