hello ya'll here is my version of rusting plastic. i started with amt's 55 chevy cameo this will be curbside so i notched the body for stance.

and the rest will be body work and a little interior work.Attached File  photo (101).JPG   25.54KB   17 downloadsAttached File  photo (102).JPG   27.72KB   18 downloads

after cleaning up the body a bit lay down your primerAttached File  photo (103).JPG   25.48KB   17 downloadsAttached File  photo (104).JPG   28.58KB   27 downloads

let primer dry then lightly sand spots you want rusty and brush on rust enamel pretty liberally.Attached File  photo (105).JPG   36.25KB   39 downloadsAttached File  photo (106).JPG   27.88KB   45 downloads

let dry then run under the faucet the wetter the better. sprinkle salt everywhere you want. the water allows the chipping effect where primer shows along with rust.Attached File  photo (89).JPG   29.93KB   43 downloads

spray your main color while still wetAttached File  photo (90).JPG   25.1KB   44 downloads

let dry fully then run under hot water brushing salt and loose paint off. Attached File  photo (91).JPG   37.28KB   39 downloadsAttached File  photo (92).JPG   30.93KB   39 downloads

brush on drawing ink i use higgens black magic for my drawings and now for my modelsAttached File  photo (93).JPG   28.35KB   37 downloadsAttached File  photo (107).JPG   44.4KB   36 downloadswash off after about 2 to 3 minutesand it will fill lines and leave a bit of black chippingAttached File  photo (94).JPG   31.58KB   47 downloadsAttached File  photo (95).JPG   42.24KB   58 downloads

then i go back with the rust enamel and some sand paper and hit spots that look to man made

great tutorial! Looks like very realistic patina and surface rust...even on the fiberglass bed sides. ;)
