Recommended Posts

Hi there Im Danny and i just got started in make model cars. I have make 2 cars but i did them just like how they looked in the box . I want to do something different. Me and my Dad have a 1961 Chevy truck we have been working on and i want to make model that look like the truck in real life. And the truck has some rust around the doors and hood. its also has some bullet holes in the door and a lot of dents. And i want to know what are some of the ways to add rust and dents to model truck.

That truck should be a fun build. There are many threads here about adding rust and dents. Here's a Google search of the MCM forum on 'rust and dents' that will get you going.

I made a rusty, denty 55 Cameo that will give you something to look at .. many of the things I did are explained in the thread. Mostly I ground out behind where I wanted to rust until I was almost through the body and picked off the thin edges with a knife.

I still have troubles getting dents to look just right, but most seem to use heat to soften the plastic and press a "dent shaped object" into the body. Many here can give better advice on dents.

Be sure to show us your progress on this beauty!
