This is my first attempt at rusting and making a beat up model.  Just started this yesterday.  Working on the body and bed first.  I plan on adding a proper hitch and making a trailer to haul my Ferrari 599 GTO

Still in the minor stages, but if you have tips/advise on better rusting. Please post up.  Critique comments always welcome

 

Using this weathering kit

I wanted a spray in bed liner.  Model Master Fabric spray has a great texture for this.  I only had gray, so i then sprayed over it in F Black.  The Aluminum bars are the beginnings of a tire rack.

A little "bondo" on the fender for realizum

From what I've seen, you don't usually have exposed, unsmoothed Bondo. Generally people will use it, smooth it out, then just primer over it. Otherwise, it's looking like some good weathering so far!

The bondo looks just fine.  I've seen cars like that driving around.
