1965 Chevy Truck "Patina Paint Job"

Recommended Posts

Hi, trying a patina paint job on this truck. Lots of layers of paint, then sand, nothing too complicated but fun. Here's what I got so far...

I think you nailed the patina look!

 

I chuckled. Does Jenny pick up when you call that number?

That's the second build in as many days utilizing that number! I think that's awesome.

:D

Looking fab !

How about a "retro" number such as "TOrrey-75309"  or "UNiversity-75309" ?

Thanks! I'm not sure, I never called the number before. :lol:  It's funny, I've used the # before on other builds too & usually nobody picks up on it. I see that "JTPlastic&Paint" has it on his truck too. AWESOME!!!

The Ms PacMan game is a great item but I kind of hate having it too. The scale is perfect & it looks great in my garage diorama but I keep taking it out to play with it. Yes, it works just like the real thing with all the boards & everything, just without the real tiny quarters.:lol: I found it in Toys R Us a few weeks ago & had to have it. I've seen them on ebay too. The box said TINY ARCADE on it & they had other ones too. Like I said, they're great but don't keep them on your workbench or you'll get nothing accomplished.

Is that the wrecker bed from the Midnite Cowboy kit? Looks great, love the weathering and details.

Thanks! Yup, it's from the Midnite Cowboy kit but I cut off the fender flares & made my own wheel wells. It made it look a little better I think.
