Revell Ford F-1 pickup

Hello everybody,

After watching all those great models and tutorials on this forum, i wanted to try spraypainting instead of painting. So i bought a can of tamiya TS-1 red brown as a base colour and the tamiya TS-6 matt black as top colour. Furthermore i used maskol to create the effect of rust.

This is the first time i worked with aerosol cans and maskol. But i am very happy with the result till now! Feedback and comments are very much welcome! :)

The engine is painted by hand with revell lightblue and aluminium:

And the body:

Looks like you're off to a great start. I've never used Maskol before. Does it spray on? I've used rubber cement for the same effect. You should try spraying a light coat of Dulcoat on and then sprinkling baking soda on that before your base coat of brown. Gives it a bit of rust texture under the paint. Go lightly with this effect. It's easy to overdo.

Keep it up.

Thanks Tom,

Maskol is a kind of liquid putty, you can brush it on or use a sponge. I have some rust solution which i am trying out now. Mayby i'll use that :) Will try the baking soda though. Thanks for the tip!

Cheers

Hi Michel,

This is looking pretty good. I had my doubts, at first, but as I watch your work developing I fin myself more and more impressed. Your techniques have definitely given me food for thought. Lead on!

Some more progress :) I've been working on the truck bed. I've used some wood and T shaped styrene between the wood. I washed the wood with revell leather brown and after that i sanded it to make it look more worn out. The styrene has been painted aluminum.
