Scale I Build

  1. Good evening, all. Just completed my first Moebius kit, and while I won't tell you that it put itself together, I will commend Moebius for having produced one of the best-engineered kits I've personally ever had the pleasure to build. First build in over ten years, so still knocking some of the rust off, but I am pleased with the effort. Not perfect, but I've never known that experience, so can't say I'm disappointed. Anyhow, enjoy the pic's. Constructive comments always warmly received. Tamiya TS-7 Racing White; AS-29 Gray Green with Top coat TS 13 Clear
  2. I found this to be more challenging than most box stock builds. Location placement of the windshield and vague and or too loose fit of some pieces like the taillight I was pleased with how well the decals worked in the recesses of the hubcaps, etc. It turned out ok in the end.
  3. I live in Missouri and in the summer I love to go down to our beautiful streams and canoe on the rivers. The canoe rental company I rent from is Jadwin Canoe rental. Over the winter I thought I'd make a truck that you might see them using to shuttle canoes and people back and forth on the river. I started with the Revell Trucks, GMC Pick Up. The paint is an acrylic artist paint made by Golden and applied through a dual action air brush. It is great stuff. While it may seem expensive, coverage is great and you hardly need to use any. You dont have to thin it, water clean up is a snap, and it covers great. I used the hair spray method to create the rusty paint job. I think the trick to success with this method is to not let the hair spray or the paint dry too long. You really need to do the procedure within 24 hours or the paint dries too hard and you cant get it off. I think you also need to use an acrylic paint. I've never had luck with enamels with this method. I also used Vallejo washes and Mig Pigments for the first time. Both work great! Highly recommended. The rack for the canoes was made from brass square and soldered together. The paddles were hand made from coffee stirs. The canoes were cheap toy canoes bough on line for less than $5.00. The pin stripe decals on them really made them come alive. Skills I was trying to work on with this project were: Painting with an airbrush, hair spray technique, rust through on body panels, soldering, making my own decals, miniaturizing maps and brochures, and general weathering using pastel chalks and washes. I hope you like it. If you have never tried making truck or car look used and beat up, you should. It's a lot of fun and if you screw something up, put a little more rust on it.
  4. 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!
  5. been working on this for a few weeks now, root beer and silver with a brown and silver interior, thanks for looking.
  6. hello guys i will show you my c30 crew cab... i have build this model out of the revell 77 gmc snow plow and the 76 sport pick up and of course some scratch build i hope you like it best regards maik
