Just a basic, curbside beater, basically built as diorama filler. That Rocket V8 was just too pretty to hide under a hood...

Nice work , Michigan Madman ( Iggy Pop ? George Clinton ? Rob Tyner ? Whose title is that again ? ;) ) .

Looks righteous ; very convincing !

 

I really like that STdecal ... Its application here reminds me of the cars in the junkyard scenes in Psych-Out , and the allusion to the "other form" of STP :blink: .

Love it, Chuck.  Great weathering throughout, and the decals accent it just right too.

Nice Oldsmobile! You sure know how to make these realistic Junkers. A thing I'd like to learn too. What you use for rust-or what technigues you use to make it rusty? Also how did you make those windows looking like that? I have '67 Mustang Junker in the works, and I'd like to make it bit more realistic than it is now.

Very well done weathering. You almost out-cranked Cranky on this one!  :D

Superb job of "junking up" the Olds, Chuck! I like the subtle touches like the missing wiper, and the rust streaks from the license plate bolts. The decals look like a teenager might have owned the car back about 1968, maybe gotten from his grandfather.

One question - I don't see any red on the taillight lenses. Are they supposed to be missing, or perhaps faded to white over the decades? Excellent work!

Thanks guys!

 

Niko- the rust on this one is a combination of washes and brush-painted Tamiya Hull Red, exposed Dupli Color red oxide filler primer, and actual rust from a dissolved steel wool pad. I mix the rust with 70% alcohol and apply it in washes, or get the rust down into the sediment in the bottom of the bottle and dab it on for heavier applications.

 

Sam- Odd you mention that- that's more or less the kind of 'feel' I was going for- right down to the '68 plate. And there's a good reason the taillight lenses aren't red. I forgot about them until you mentioned it.
