    Thanks for the tips! I do have the testors rubber, and enough various other grays, blacks and browns to do some experimenting on making my own washes. A good plan or the afternoon!

    I do have a set of Tamiya weathering power, but I've never used them. What colours do you suggest to use to make the wash?

    Ok, not much of an update here. I've been laid off since July and have been busy doing interviews, tried a job working in the shop for the local GM dealer, but that didn't pan out. I've got the basic engine painted, and I'm looking into what ways there are for weathering it. I've got rust (real rust from #0000 grade steel wool), I just need to settle on a wash for oiling up the engine. I've got more time now, so hopefully I can put more time into this.

    If I recall correctly, the B series engines ranged from 350 to 440 cubic inches, and began production in the late '50's. Any MoPar big block engine will work, as the difference in scale between a 383 and a 440 are (I think) indistinguishable to the naked eye. Since you already have the cross ram set up, you're nearly there. I'd recommend the 440 from the Revell '68/9 Chargers and Daytona, if you need a 1/25. Love those kits!

    That one shows up for me, anyone else? This is another of the Daytona's I found for inspiration.

    Good! I've never had troubles posting pictures before, not sure why it went sideways this time? I'd prefer the picture in the post over the link, but I guess I'll take what I can get.

    lets see if it works this time...

    I'm not sure what's going on with the pictures, they were there at first, now nothing? I'll try using the laptop once I get home and see if they works. I did come across that car in my research, it's one of my main sources.

    Barn find '69 Daytona
    Alright, I got the inspiration for this from seeing Crazyrichards barn find Nova. I've never done weathering before, so this should be interesting! I'm using the Scenic Rust kit, I've tried a quick bit on a junk body to see how well it works. Should know by morning. I'm using the Revell Daytona, and plan on all kinds of bent/damaged/missing stuff.
    I've got a start on the 440, I drilled out the intake since the carb will be missing, and drilled out the hole for the PCV. I'm going to try to replicate rags stuffed in the intake to keep junk out of it. If anyone has any suggestions for what to add or forget, let them fly!

    Great job so far! I used to own a '66 Sport Fury with a 4bbl 383 Commando, and that car could move like you wouldn't believe a big car like that could! Wish I'd been able to keep the old girl... I'll be watching this build for ideas to build my Johan '66 Fury! Keep up the good work!

    Amazing work! I've got a Daytona I'd like to rust out like this, but I lack the supplies and courage! This is definitely driving me closer though! Fantastic!
