weathering some broken ones

Post by Johnny_Bravo » Fri Aug 18, 2017 4:31 pm

won't show the first ones i tried for they are hilarious, but i will show the ones that look like what i had in mind when i started. I am learning the techniques, experimenting and exercising. this is where the pw's come in handy. preparing for minichamps, neo, matrix and others....someday in the future. The themed dioramas will follow as soon as i get some space to deposit them after they are ready.

Nice work. I especially like the realistic look on the white front fender. Personally I would tone down the amount of dirty on the glass, and consider removing the odd headlight and wheel.

If you're going to have a graveyard of rusting classics then you definitely need a 70's - 80's Alfa :lol: :

Nice job on the weathering, pretty realistic looking rust :D Rocker panels look too good so perhaps that part needs more rust, maybe even holes and patch paint, perhaps something which imitates unfinished welded patch ;)

Wow, never seen so badly rusted car like that Alfa, there's rust holes even in the roof and A-pillar has pretty much disappeared :shock:

You'll be giving Jean.B nightmares... :o

It's interesting seeing one forum member stripping down and carefully restoring his models to 'concours' pristine while the other forum member takes a model and 'er weather's it a bit..., no make that a lot!! :)

Both approaches are works of art - fantastic.
