Rusty weathered 54 Chevy

06 April 2014 - 04:29 AM

And yet another one done up for my friend Jeff who will have this on a slot car chassis for drag racing. The wheels and tires are just for the pics. This is the Revell 54, a HORRIBLE kit. But Jeff likes the post car so here it is. I added some headlight and taillight bezels made from baremetal. This kit has not headlight reflectors, so its just silver paint. The rear windows on these things are too small and literally fall through the opening. Luckily I had an extra 54 lying around. And its window was a tad larger, still almost falls through. I added rear quarter windows made from cut down Revell 56 Chevy windows. Paint is Taymia British Green and Duplicolor white on the roof. With various weathering powders and the salt technique. I added "bird droppings" to this one. Oh, and as usual lots of dull coat. The next few he's going to have me do will be glossy cars. Im even gonna try my hand at a lace paint job. 20140404_072130.jpg20140404_072325.jpg20140404_072100.jpg20140404_072246.jpg20140404_072119.jpg

 


Rusty 51 Chevy Convertible

19 March 2014 - 12:23 AM

And yet another one done up rusty and crusty for my friend Jeff who will use this for slot car drag racing. AMT's 51 Chevy, done in pale yellow with a white top. With weathering powders, and the salt and rubber cement technique. I did the interior up too, although it may not be used, or at least all of it. Its a bummer that all that baremetal got dullcoated over. The chassis its on is only for photos.20140318_0651451.jpg20140318_0651451.jpg20140318_0651211.jpg

65 Chevy Weathered pickup for slot drags

18 February 2014 - 03:21 PM

Revell's 65 Chevy Pickup done for a friend as a weathered beater to be used for slot car drag racing. I did two beds as requested so he can switch between them. I use the salt technique  and weathering powders. I added a rag in place of the gas cap, and added caddy taillights to the stepside bed. The bumpers were just in the bed because he will have to figure how they will attached later. Sadly I weathered both bed floors, and he will end up hogging them out to fit the chassis and motor. So he will end up putting a bed cover on in that case.
