I got some paint on The Rig and I'm trying the salting method for the first time.

I've probably overdone the salting but I figure it's gone through the most dangerous areas of the out break so it would be pretty scuffed up. Also does anyone have tips on doing a simple desert camo paint job.

So I went to the LHS today and bought two models off the clearance racks.

Both 'UPTOWN' series by revell- the Magnum R/T and the Chrysler 300c SRT8. Curbsides, as I found out, but I'm just building 'em to take a little break from the PA/ZH CBP for a few to work on improving my shiny jobs. plus, I only spent 35 bucks total for two kits and some modelling filler.

Don't get me wrong, I have something in store for later.

I'm just 'resting my imagination' if you will. :D

A lot of great work going on here. I'm quite glad this one is a year long CBP, as life continually derails my modeling plans. If I can escape work this weekend there will be more work on the Puma.

hey doc where can i find zombie figures? btw iam building an dodge ram. with a gun mounted in the back with a snow plow mounted in front. just got to get the supplies for it.

Richie, your guest is as good as mine. There are a couple of people working on some modified figures, but they haven't finished the work yet. I am hoping to see some great results, and possibly some great figures in the market soon.

I had made contact with a Greek sculptor to do some figures but the price was a bit too steep. He wanted around 700 dollars for the sculpt and they would still have to be molded and cast, which was going to add even more to the expense. Can't afford it, but I know the work was going to be first rate.

Nah, there's nothing out there . . . which is why a few folks are building their own. I'm hoping there will be something soon enough for us to be able to have some fun with when it comes to Zombie figures in 1/24th scale.

Well here's The Rig after messing up the salting by using rattle cans. I did what I could with it. Do you guys think it still looks alright? The paint build up around the salt gave it a really bumpy texture.

I'd think giving it a once over with some fine sandpaper would help it, then give it another wash to get rid of any salt that is still trapped.

Well I tried fixing it but made it worse. now everything is sitting in the purple pond and I'm praying that it'll remove krylon.
