      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

  1. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Final update: all dirtied up. Let me know what I did wrong.
  2. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Yeah, the stock it was turned from is choppy at best I'd likely have to use wood filler and sand it. I'll stick with ye Olde time natural keg.
  3. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Update: some interior details and some dirt weathering
  4. 41 BEER Wagon?

    I think the wood does too. Ill go with that then.
  5. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Update: some chrome embelishments
  6. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Update: I designed a beer logo, then became abundantly clear of the limitations of my printer, and had to scale back the detail. I just picked these up at hobby town to see how they work. Here's me testing out the look with a reject print One challenge I had was to find a fixative to seal the ink that wouldn't dissolve under my clear coat. This seems to wotk Here they are all cleared. I learned a valuable lesson here, I didn't clean the aluminum out of my airbrush well, so I have aluminum flakes in the clear which bummed me out. More with the mocked body and wood. I found these barrels on ebay at 1:24 scale. They offer them in wood and aluminum, I bought the aluminum but was somewhat unhappy with the finish quality on what's supposed to be a smooth keg. What do you guys prefer? Still need to sand and polish the clear to remove orange peel and decal wave.

    Updated chassis I have more work to do
  8. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Its actually stickier than I expected. I saw that Tamyia had similar weathering pigment, although im sure it is made specifically for this. But for a dollar its worth a shot. The redish color matches rust pretty well.

    UPDATE: I painted and sealed the black paint with matte clear to keep from scratches. I also shot the copper sides. I'm not going with a standard ratio between colors, I'm looking for a less flashy industrial scheme. Somewhat understated flash of color. I did my best to keep the surface as smooth as possible. I will be designing a logo for the door, my guess is this and the clear over the bronze will be one of the last things I do before assembly. Working on the engine is pretty easy with this truck. Very simple and streamline. I had to bore out the horn as it didn't have a hole. I did some minor weathering, I plan on using some dollar tree eye shadow to add dirt and more surface weather. For the distributor I used an aluminum cylinder filled with sculpey. I created holes for the wires as spark plug mounts are difficult to work with. I then used a heat gun to cure the clay which hardens the holes. I thin just dipped the wires in superglue and stuck them in the holes to harden. I then painted the boots and wired it into the engine and painted the boots there. The rest of this was a stock build for now. I intend on doing more scratch engine detail once the engine is mounted.

    This looks cool, wonder if it would work to paint it on somehow.
  11. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Yeah this is the best I've seen. Some of the guys on Prop replica forum use All-Clad which has pretty good results as well but my opinion not quite as good as this is holding up. Take a look at this spoon I sprayed over the brushing shown above and it's holding up pretty well.

    This build is tremendous. The quality and care is absurd you should be ashamed of yourself for how bad you make me look.

    I still have no clue how you got the grille that perfect. Trying to show the lights was not happening for me. How did you accomplish that subtle variation?
  14. 1976 gran torino

    This model is solid. One of the best I've worked on.
  15. 1976 gran torino

    I would like to see the results of a crafted interior. I'll keep an eye out for that.
