78 AMC Pacer rebuilt junk

Recommended Posts

Looks like brand new!! Or at least what they looked like soon after. 

Well done weathering, very believable.

Very well done! Both, the model and the photography.

Nicely Done!

Very convincing rust effects, what did you use to achieve the bumpy texture?

I like it!  Typical 70s junker! With the cult following on Pacers today, a real one would need to be restored!

The weathering and rust are outstanding ( resembles a 5 year old California beach car ! ) , but perhaps it's the red/white/blue colour scheme that's most attractive to me !  It's as if the emissions-laden-gas-hog-era didn't happen , and this is a (phantom) 1978 Super Stock Pacer ; a massaged 401 under that massive bonnet .

wow, I love it! Fair play, mate, you do some amazing weathering. A couple of the shots look like a real car. Awesome work, very nice.

Thanks Dave, I used the sophisticated finishes paint & blotted it on heavy for the thicker rust.

Your scale derelict builds always look so realistic. The Red White and Blue paint job along with the Pacer X side trim hints that this might have had a very interesting life at one time.
