Thanks guys, squeezed in an hour at the bench this evening and first off I want to apologise to you Ian I simply didn't have time to shoot a WIP load of pics but I will do it for you on the doors mate. More fun added:

And the rear (this was created by just using the sponge technique):

And you can just see the interior of the cab with dash and gear sticks, pedals etc:


The union jack was done with some careful masking ;)

Lol Rookie. Yeah Zappa mate no worries, very easy actually I just hacked away at them with a number 11 blade, sanded down the edges of the cushion to make it look squashed with age. Primered black, highlighted with Tamiya Light Grey, satin varnish then added a cold grey wash from Mig Productions and finally made a wash of Valejo Flesh Base and added it to the scored marks that I made with the blade and hopefully it looks like the foam coming out of the rips.

Thanks CD!
Well heres a quick WIP of the sponge maskol chipping:
Sprayed a light colour first.

First stage of Maskol applied with tweezers and a sponge and take off the majority on a scrap piece of paper (speed up the drying time of the Maskol with a hair dryer).

Dark colour next:

Final layer of Maskol applied heavily (personal preference).

Sprayed a funky light colour.

Rub off the maskol with your finger after everything has thoroughly dried:

I did the same on the rear door and the passenger side wing:



Thanks for looking, the doors I'm going easy on lol, well one of them ;)

How could you not smile? All the colors of the rainbow are represented. Tamiya makes an X-17? Go figure. Love the chipping son, great job.
