kit was weathered unintentionally.
It was a former model made box stock and I wanted to change its color,
and add bare metal foil to it. So I disassembled the model, and put it
in an oven cleaner solution overnight. Nothing had happened next
So I applied cellulosic thinner with a brush all over. It not only
the paint up, but attacked the plastic as well. But the cracked
were so attractive, that I decided to make a weathered model.
removed some of the chrome
trim, drilled holes for the trim clips, applied red acrylic paint over,
then applied Model Master 1785 Rust paint. I then sanded the car very
all over, and the rust paint in recesses were left intact, whereas the
underlying red paint came to daylight. Then I applied bare metal foil
the left trim parts. I then applied matt clear coat on the bare metal
weather it, and drybrushed the bumpers with rust too. The inside was
a light sanding for weathering. The windshield was treated with
for wiper blade traces.
