Very nice John. The smashed glass adds a lot of character. Kudos to Ken for sharing that method. That whole article was very informative.

Cant leave this thing alone lol, added the chopped off roof:

Cut out a sun roof:

Then used the same icy sparkels trick but this time sprayed it clear green:

Added the lights, with dented covers and home made radiator guard:


Added the rear lights and dusted them:

John - I tested out that maskol method this evening on a spare door, and it's pretty great.

My base and second layer were too similar in color unfortunately, so it's hard to see the difference, but I'm going to give it another go.

After the paint test I added a few weathering AK layers.

Did another pass on the same door tonight and it turned out much better.

I REALLY like that chipping method John.
