One more today, becaus i have time :D

this T-Bird was a bad try to remove paint.

From the beginning. i wanted to make this old monogram kit with opening doors in a color like biscuit. I think, that i have always bad luck with red plastic. after more than three color layers, always red will come thru the paint. "What doing, little Dominik?" I ask my self.

straight in a bath of oven cleaner to remove the paint and wait 24 hours, there was the result: in places departed paint down to the primer. Bad, bad result. so i took my gun and painted like van Gogh a rusty, old look. Some dust and paint for rust and - ready.Put some new wheels and windshields in, new licenceplates and up for it on the track.

It is tooo heavy i think, looks like a old ship in the ship graveyard...but it was a experiment and has also a place in my showcase.

What do you think about?

Really nice, that rust looks very realistic, I'd like to get that level too on weathering. I like the look with rusty body with clean wheels and tires. This one looks really good...

Wow, very striking those colors between the rust and white/yellow. Very cool. Love it.

LONG LIVE RUST!
