70 Ford F-100

My latest. The Moebius kit, tried to replicate factory colors. Used MM Flanker Pale Blue; it's a great stand-in for the original Diamond Blue. MRP Insignia White for the rest, along with a prewired distributor and some bumper stickers from Gofer. Sorry for the lousy pics.

That looks fantastic.  I really like the rust work - looks like a well used work truck

Thanks,

John

How did you create the chips/rust effect?

That is some great work. YesYes

Rust is awesome. I so admire those of you who can paint/weather so well.....especially the rust bombs.

Back in the day, the guy down the street from me had one that looked nearly identical to this -- including the rust spots -- except his had home-made (and badly sprayed, probably with Rustoleum cans) two-tone white trim.

Excellent work! YesBeer

How did you create the chips/rust effect?

 

Hand brushed using AK Interactive rust effects set (acrylic) and built up successively darker shades till it was where I wanted it, then dullcoat. The key to it is making it look random. This is actually my second try. I did the Revell 65 Chevy step side a few months back, good effect but got a little carried away. I might post it anyway if anyone is interested in seeing it.

Thanks for looking and replying, everybody. Glad you like it.
