Many thanks for all your kind comments.

Regarding the method I've used to weather it, in miniature figure circles it's called glazing or sometimes people say its like applying a filter. I guess before the end I'll be adding some weathering powders too, just to give it that dusty look.

Your model is pretty cool! Not a criticism, but a tip on a detail. Look at the hood (bonnet) side trim. Note that the two horizontal bars are seperate, the round piece in your photo is a bit of the tool sprue. Also, between the two bars up front, the FORD plate is a seperate piece so put a bit of body color paint between the pieces. See the above photo for that detail. Cheers!

Ah, thanks for that Tom, I hadn't realised that's how it looked. I shall make the necessary corrections this morning :)

Darn, I forgot the spure thing.

So, whilst there's not so much to see that's new I've been beavering away doing lots of bits - dullcoat, weathered the underneath, headlamps, one side bin, attached the bonnet, painted some fire bomb bottles and lots of other bits that need doing but gets lost in the bigger picture.

Agh, what is it about those chrome bits I keep forgetting!

Here's the next stage, I've gone for something a little different on this side -

Thanks Jon and Austin, nice to know you're enjoying the process. If there's something you want to know about how I've been painting it just ask away.

I got the resin from a company called Dark World Creations whilst at a model show. I've just checked and its not up on their website yet but I know they're good guys so if you contact them they maybe able to help you.
