This is a slush cast resin Airstream trailer. It came with the windows molded in and it's hollow inside but I wanted more depth so I cut the windows out and made clear windows out of plastic and hung curtains behind them. I used some resin wheels and scratch built a bagged tounge. The paint is Krylon foil metallic silver over a gloss black base. Enjoy.

I'm going to set it up behind my Suburban when it's done.

Nice job, and I'm intrigued by that Krylon Foil paint. Did you buff it out, or is it straight from the can?

Thanks, it was strait from the can.

Very cool. What are the curtains made from? Are they textile material or color prints?

Thanks, the curtains are printed fabric.

That's quite a tank. Someone could have a lot of fun steampunking the dickens out it. Great choice on the paint, I'll have to look into that.

Is the Krylon Paint that you used their "Premium Metallic" product? I looked at the Krylon site this was the only one that showed a "silver foil" color. There were only a few reviews for the product, but several mentioned that "the paint was a beautiful smooth finish.....until it was touched. It leaves a dust like residue that wipes off on anything it touches" and that it easily loses its shine when touched by anything.  Have you had any issues?

Thanks,

Bart

This is what I used.

It's like Molotow chrome in that you can't touch it for a while or it will dull.
