Hello everybody,

After watching all those great models and tutorials on this forum, i wanted to try spraypainting instead of painting. So i bought a can of tamiya TS-1 red brown as a base colour and the tamiya TS-6 matt black as top colour. Furthermore i used maskol to create the effect of rust.

This is the first time i worked with aerosol cans and maskol. But i am very happy with the result till now! Feedback and comments are very much welcome! :)

The engine is painted by hand with revell lightblue and aluminium:

And the body:

I will update as i am going along, thanks for watching.

Looks like you're off to a great start. I've never used Maskol before. Does it spray on? I've used rubber cement for the same effect. You should try spraying a light coat of Dulcoat on and then sprinkling baking soda on that before your base coat of brown. Gives it a bit of rust texture under the paint. Go lightly with this effect. It's easy to overdo.
Keep it up.

Later-

Thanks Tom,

Maskol is a kind of liquid putty, you can brush it on or use a sponge. I have some rust solution which i am trying out now. Mayby i'll use that :) Will try the baking soda though. Thanks for the tip!

Cheers

Did a little work today on the chassis of the car. Planning on working on the engine tomorrow and finishing up the chassis.

Thanks for watching.

Hi Michel,
This is looking pretty good. I had my doubts, at first, but as I watch your work developing I fin myself more and more impressed. Your techniques have definitely given me food for thought. Lead on!

Some more progress :) I've been working on the truck bed. I've used some wood and T shaped styrene between the wood. I washed the wood with revell leather brown and after that i sanded it to make it look more worn out. The styrene has been painted aluminum.
