Hi guys.. Here is one of my many projects to show up for you.. Its Aoshima model kit of Nissan Gloria 4 door HT 280E Brougham.. So far i have done it almost out of box, i just added side exhaust pipes, pack of Lucky Strikes on interior and some decals here and there.. all other besides those are out of box, just with little "custom" painting with rusty touch. There is no pictures of chassis, since there is nothing to look, just battery sort of chassis plate painted in black I used closest paints i found from my paint collection to give that Gulf livery look for this fine and elegant Nissan.. Then i started to add some rust, with oil colors, and Tamiya weathering stuff and some Vallejo washes.. oh for painting i used also some hairspray and salt method for chipping that paint.. blah, but since my english is not that good to tell everything i have done, i will let pictures speak.. Realistic or not, i have had a lot of fun with doing this one.. Its my first time doing this type of weathering job
harleyszone posted a topic in On The WorkbenchHi guys I`m Cosmo and this is my first post in here. I`m working on a conversion project that started from a MPC `76 Chevy Caprice 2-door coupe version. For some reason the body part was not molded well when I received the model and I think it`s beyond repairable. So I decieded to chop the damaged A-pillar and fender section and replace it with epoxy-bounded Foil material and gave it a damaged appearance. I always have a thing for the big, full-size american 4 door sedan in the 60`s and 70`s. So I converted the MPC 2-door coupe version to a 4-door sedan. I cut the B-pillar and fill the quarter window because I prefer a more traditional and thicker C-pillar which is different from the actual `76 Caprice sedan, but personally I prefer the look. I also rescribed the door panel lines and trunk. I used sterene sheet to reform the roof section and I sanded off the side trim to give the Caprice a more "base model" appearance. -------------------------------------------------------- I`ll keep the progress updated in here. Comments are greatfully appreciated!
