Yes you're right... A part of the stake is lost, but I think I'll break another... :)

Who's Chuck Most ?


Why, isn't he the king of rust and weathering???????? :D ;)


Nice job on this build, I would suggest some more dullcote on those fuel tanks, still too shiny!

What does mean dullcote ?


There is a product called dullcote that can be sprayed on a shiny surface to make it appear dull or less shiny.

There are typically 4 levels of clear one can spray on a surface:

1. High Gloss- for the shiniest of finishes, mainly on show cars

2. Gloss- for a shiny surface finish, usually used to replicate a factory paint job.

3. Semi-gloss- for those parts that typically have a little shine to them, like chassis parts, underhood, etc.

4. Flat or dullcote- these are parts that have no shine to them.


Hope this helps!

I like this alot. It certainly looks like its had a hard life. If you try and get some photo's outside in natural light the diorama would look real. Great work.

Well, I've taken some photos of the truck outside. Not the diorama, just the truck and a fence, because I live in an appartment at the 2nd floor and it's difficult to bring the dio outside. But, patience, my home is almost built ! :)

As a guy who knows weathered C-Series trucks (and knows them well), I'd say you nailed the look. Very nicely done!
