      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Grilles-Looking for ideas

2 posts in this topic

Posted

Many models come with chrome grilles, not a very realistic look.

Im looking for ideas in making them more realistic.

i heard of using ink-alcohol to fill in the whole grill with a painted look.

looking for different ideas.

What about darkening between the chrome ribs , so you still have a chrome grille, but more realistic?

Thanks guys!

Other than doing some sort of black wash, you are into a lot more work making a grille look realistic. Sanding from behind to open up the grille or removing & replacing with PE or scratchbuilt parts are the way to go if washes don't do it for you.
