I was reading the Weathering Vol 4 thread and thread originator mentioned how the models finish was damaged and he decided to weather the model rather than repaint. This made me smile because I've done something similar here recently and I wonder how often does this happen?

 

If this has happened to you post 'em up and tell us what happened.

 

In my case a reaction between paint and clear caused some nasty crazing but it looked very close to old 1:1 paint cracking due to age. So I got out some acrylics and began the weathering. The model was going to have minimal weathering and just a nice suede finish.

The whole Rat Rod craze does help us out sometimes, doesn't it?  :D

 

 Came out nice in the end.

That is why I build so many armor models. My frequent, ahem, screw ups become nicely weathered tanks.

Nice work. I like the crackle on the nose.

 

There are those of us who intentionally build beat old weathered models   :rolleyes:

 

I've had the opposite happen to me. I was building an old Dodge van that was going to be dull and look like a brush paint job. I used Duplicolor and it came out amazingly perfect.  Oh crud!  I weathered it anyway since the body already had rust holes.

Ummm.................my goal here wasn't to show off my model (although I will, rather shamelessly) but to start a thread for other poeple that have done this to post up their work.

 

You know one of those, "Show me your _____________!" threads.

 

I'll just rename it and remove the confusion.

I was real happy with the finish on this one except for one little spot on the driver's door.  I tried matching the paint a minimum of four times and failed each time with the spot growing each time.  Actually the paint was perfect until I masked it off to spray the headliner a lighter color, which bleed through the tape.  Anyway the end result speaks for it's self.  My Junk Yard Dog one and only Mustang.  009.jpg010.jpg012.jpg013.jpg

Love the Rustang!  Here's one I've been working on for years. Started as a mint kit, with intent of making exactly what you see here.  I was working from photos of a 1:1 that looked exactly like this!

Revell AG MkII Golf. I was going to try and make a nice custom car, but between the ill fitting bodykit, and the two-tone paint reacting badly. (Duplicolor black and Plasticote silver, I believe).I tried to fix the paint twice, but got the same results... :angry:  Should've gone with one color, or the other, I know. Anyways, I turned it into this amatuer weekend race car.

My first rally car. A Fiat 131 Abarth. I was having trouble with the large decals, especially over the hood scoop and rear brake vents. The heavy mud hides alot.

I love this! That hood is weathering that tells a story. It reminds me of a car I've known that had upper surface damage exactly like that after a storm blew a plywood sheet across it and never got fixed.

That's a Civic not an Accord in the real picture.

Cool. I guess it's just an older Civic.  Someone told me it wasn't a Civic. That's what I get for believing people! LOL

Yeah its a mid 90's Civic so the inner structure is still mainly the same into the early 2000's. I only mentioned that because what you built should be fairly accurate to the real car of that year.

Thanks I built it from a ton of reference photos of junkers and stolen cars being sold on eBay.  Here's some of them:
