hi all ,

this model rod is very special to me ! , this is the one that started my modelbuilding "career"

i got this packard for free a few years back , new in the box bit it was a bit damaged ...

i started to play around with this die-cast and turned it into a hotrod , i didnt have any tools , paint or ... never build models when i got this packard ...

after this packard i got the modelbuild fever and after bying a nother die-cast (bug) and playing around with that i started to find awsome 1/24 and 1/25 builds online and got my first plastic kit :)

this was the packard when i got it

i build a hotrod out of the packard .. then changed it later on and ordered a 1/18 blown engine ...
i took a 1/16 ferrari v8 and merged the parts with the other engine

last week i took the rod out of storage and gave it some powders and played around with it

this morning i figured why not make it like its been on the salt flats ...

so i put it on the bench and this was the result > (used white pigment powder)

10401865_488827871250128_445065255881216

just thought i'd share it here .. again its a very old build and changed 2 times , when i was just starting building .. beside the weathering i dont want to upgrade anything because this is the one that started it all :)

in the future and with a lote more learnt since this rod i want to start a 1/8 hotrod build

no offence ..but when you build things that look all dusted up and dirty..nothing really can go wrong can it?you could even mask a drop of spilled glue with some weathering..no one would ever see or know it.

i'm guessing if you painted it high gloss red with a nice shiny detailed engine ,it would have taken much more time and effort.

not knocking it ..but i never could or would understand the 'ratlook' thing...

The rat rod look is not for everyone. If you don't understand it, don't worry about it. We can't all like the same thing!  ^_^

 

PS: I like it!  :D

no offence taken :)... but whell maybe i like this look / style ..

best way to describe would be i like building something weathered more just for the proces of weathering .. its just fun to do ... and yes i do like the look of weathered cars .. but thats not the main reason i do it :)
and i dont agree with the fact that high gloss takes more effort , in fact in a lot of cases weathered builds are harder (not this one but ..>)

and if you think its because i want to hide stuff or dont know gloss

here is some 1/24 stuff i build >

and yes thats really smooth as glass and i did the black and the clear with rattle cans .... so :)

and on my gasstation diorama i made this .. trust me nothing about that is slapping some stuff on and done ...

1476250_397313180401598_1279812277_n.jpg

just saying because i think its more a matter of taste then ... the most awsome build i have seen involved weathered stuff ..

you do build nice stuff Richard.. don't get me wrong

i 'm just more of a nit picker..and i build clean..

models tend do get weathered and dusty just by sitting on the shelf over here....kinda makes me think why i bother.

yes like said no problem , just gave the idea behind the weathering :) i just love to do that more then shiny ..
and in this case this model is just for fun , my first creation ever ... wanted to have some fun .. atm with the nice weather and other hobbys in the summer i just dont feel like building much , i also have way less time for forums and to keep up with everything here .. too busy :(
