I love the rust on this! It's coming out nice and grungy like an old work truck should!
Don't think Future is ammonia based, as ammonia is a cleaner, just a clear acrylic liquid, which is why Windex, which is ammonia based is so effective in cleaning an airbrush that had Future in it.Neo said:
Yeah that's definitely the way to go. Gonna have to pre-cut it and get it on there right, will take some finesse I think.Papermodder said:Hi Cave Dweller.
Have you tried making a mask out of tape to cover the area you want clear. It should be an easy one to make.
Haha, thanks Uncle Bob, that's a good tip!Elm City Hobbies said:There is an article out there on how to do that on a military vehicle, so could easily be used on a 1/25 vehicle as well.
Basically involves using one of those compasses we used in school to create the arc mask needed to mask off the wiper area.
Once they are done, place them on the windshield, and the spray on what you would like. Even just a matt varnish sprayed on will give you a light dirtyness, and of course you can go full monty with some pigments and dirt.
I just can't remember where I saw the article, can't remember if it was online or in a magazine, but shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
I think it is something like, you put the point of the compass on where the wiper attaches to the vehicle, and the other end on the bottom of the wiper blade itself, and draw across, and it will give you the bottom arc, re-adjust the pencil end to the other end of the wiper and then draw the top arc. Then just cut it out and viola, Bob's your uncle.
Thanks Grendels, yeah I added them after washing, will have to wash over them. Hoping to finish it up this weekend!Grendels said:The only criticism I can offer is that the license plate is far too clean. Other than that, it looks great!
