after almost a year of not touching a single model I finally decided to finish these old plastic jewels that haunted me from the depths of my closet! and as I thought well maybe I'll just paint her satin white and leave her alone I dove into a deep hole of inspiration and thought "why not try something new", everytime I'd finish a model I'd paint it and make it look out of the factory, but not no more my friends, here is my take on a revell ford pick up and my first try at weathering a model!!!! please feel free to let me know your opinions! I'd love to learn from the Jedi Masters of weathering!

Neat, looks very good! Maybe if you've got a dremel tool, you could look up on YouTube for how to add rust holes. They're tricky to get without an example to follow, but add to the weathering effect

I've been working on the chasis of the ol' truck! here is the progress, I'd say a little more glue and a little more weathering and she'll be ready for the shelf!

Looks to me like the rims for the rear somehow ended up on the front and the front to the rear. Tires look to be in the right spots, though. This may be the reason the rim is poking out of the tire in the front.

other than that, I'd say you've done a fine job for your first weathering attempt.
