How do I make acrylic paint crack?

10 September 2013 - 10:04 PM

Ok, guys, here's the deal:

I want to make my Tamiya acrylic paint crack into small, tiny cracks. What house-hold chemistry should I spray or pour over it? I tryed nail-enamel-remover, alcohol, nitro thinner, Revell Colormix... Nothing happened... :/ Any advice?

 

If it's easier to make Revell enamels crack with something, just let me know. Heck, I'll paint the vinyl roof with enamels, then... :D

 

Thank you for any advice!

 

Best regards,

 

Damir

 


Plymouth Superbird front end material

21 August 2013 - 06:52 PM

Guys, I need some help here...

 

I'm working on a 1:24 1970 Plymouth Superbird. As I'm planing to make a weathered car I'd like to know what the front end of the car was made of in 1:1? Ok, the fenders and the hood were sheet metal, right? But what about that aditional pointy nose on the car? Was it also made of sheet metal or some kind of non-rusting material, like plastic, fiberglass or something else?

 

I mean, rusted plastic parts would be a kick to the guts for the model, right? :D

 

Thank you for all your answers in advance, guys!

 

Have a great day!

1970 Birdie

I started work on this monster right after I finished my Impreza (which I still have to photo...). A classic Monogram's '70 Superbird. Got it about a month ago and couldn't wait to start working on it :D

 

I've done a thing or two to it. My holidays are over so the progress is going to be much slower than on the Impreza.

 

Here are a few shots of it:

Cleaned all the parts of flash and excess plastic:

Glued the seats. Plenty of puttying and sanding to be done here... ;)

Cut out one of the front lights:

Impreza Arai - NOT

I started this beauty a few weeks ago. No, it will not be the Arai version ;) It'll be a street racer ;)

Got this poor thing from a friend of mine. It was mint, but the quality of the model was like 2/10... Nice start... ;) Check them pics for more ;)
