Man - Burnt Out Cab
Posted by Tiking on Thursday, April 26, 2018 3:59 AM

I have been experimenting lately with different burnt out effects lately. As you can see in some pics I have tried simulating carbon fibers as they literally tear into almost thread-like material, by using disinfection wipes. It looks 'OK' but not quite perfect. I have added more modulation effects on the cab and more weathering on the overall cab and truck as a whole.

The right tyre is flat. It is difficult to tell with all the ashes surrounding it. And yes, my reference photo had a similar attribute. I know most would wonder why the right tyre did not get burnt to a crisp like the left tyre...

In most cases depending on the degree of the fire and where it was most intense. I have seen photos with similar attributes.

I think , I am satisfied with the results , especially, after taking some outside photos of the model. What do you guys think?

Personally I think it's pretty realistic, I might have blackened the insulation material on the ground,but I think you have achieved your goal.Nice job.

Have looked in on a couple of your other "fire" builds, and all are very well done, as this one is.

 

Don't take this the wrong way, but you do have a pyro streak in you.....and I like it.Wink

Love the results!!! I too would swear it were the real thing if I didn't see the base. 

 

If you ever have time to do a walk-though I'd love to see it. I've been wanting to do something like that to a T-34 for years now but not really sure how to start.

Thank you. Ok. A short over view of what I did. The effect is rather simple. I used Rust, black, Grey and white pigments. I started off with painting everything with Tamiya Grey ground spray paint. I do not own an air brush.

Then I started off with Mig rust pigment over everything. Then I moisten everything with a AK interactive solution. Then I spray everything with a Matt spray. This fixes the pigments in place as well as gives it a kind of pattern due to the chemical reacting to each other, which I kinda like.

Then I just added Grey, black and different shades of rust pigments little at a time until I got the effect I wanted. I also used white pigments from Humboldt. It helps to have  photo of your reference truck in front of you.

Before I started  I collected many photos of Burnt out trucks to get get an idea of what the different effects look like. That is pretty much it.

Then the last thing I did was used the sponge effect to add some white paint at various areas on the truck, to break up the monotone overall burn effect.

I hope this is helpful.

If I ever get around to it, too many projects right now, I'll dig out an old model and try it!

I agree, amazing work.

So many of our friends above have mentioned it looks real in the photos. And yes, it truly does.

When I was looking at the first shot, before I started scrolling down, I thought you were showing us a pic of a real one.
