This looks like it is going to be one rusty truck, Yordan.......

David

The idea is a beat up truck with faded paint and rust showing. Something that has been used and abused in the country. I’m a little intimidated because I have never built a car from scratch and I have never used the airbrush.

Very brave to have a go at this , considering it is your first built vehicle and first attempt with the airbrush too.

Chassis, body and other parts ready to get painted with rust color primer. Also, a quick look at what the car will look like on the diorama.

Applied base rust (this was just the base for random rust pattern):

1) Airbrushed Mig Jimenez Rust Color Primer.

2) Once Primer is dried,

   a) I loaded a ripped piece of make up sponge with light orange acrylic ( I used light rust from Vallejo), and unloaded most of it on a piece of paper to get a dry painting effect.

   b) I lightly dabbed the sponge, randomly over the body, focusing more on raises areas, edges. Also, hood and roof top.

3) Once dried, I applied a wash of light rust over the whole body. I used Vallejo light rust wash, which has a little bit more orange on it. This is just a wash to tie colors together, somewhat. 

Coming up next: 

1) Seal the base.

2) Prepare for chipping and fading: hairspray and salt application over the body, where rust will be showing.

3) Paint the body and chip away.

4) Apply more light rust wash to blend in the rust showing with the edges of the paint.

5) Rust pigment for texture on the rotting sections.

This is it for now.

Painting and chipping almost finished. A few touch ups on some areas before the next stage (more weathering). Already learning from mistakes as I go. I meant to use the salt chipping technique on the roof top and hood. It will be for the next model.

Some more updates. Chipping of the paint didn’t come out how I wanted it. Reason? I failed to seal the rust layer, so had to be extremely careful to not peel it off.

I’m already working on the engine, chassis and wheels.There will be more weathering once the model is complete put together.

The rest of the diorama will be worked on once the truck is completed.

I couldn't tell if the pictures were the diorama, or if you were showing reference pictures 😁  Amazing details!  I am going to save these to my stash of inspiration photos
