Shot up, crashed down, and left to the elements. Thanks for looking!
That looks great! Just discovered this mold last night, and I love it. You really did a great job with the weathering.
Awesome! The rust detailing is way cool!
I fond memories of 'Batteries Not Included' so this is like a great crossover for me.
Nice paint apps...great job on the realism!
OMG, yes! Batteries not included was a great movie! You are correct about the connection.
awesome custom. I always loved Batteries not included also
I like it. Rusty paint jobs are so much fun. If you ever get into airbrushing or spray painting, you can get some really great effects with salt masking. It gives that speckled rust look that's really hard to paint. I can find you some links if you like.
Great look on a beat up bee. Very nicely done.
That would be awesome, thanks Tom!
Here you go. I learned a lot from YouTube videos like these
And an article
Salt Weathering Techniques
Personally, I've had more luck with salt masking than the hairspray chipping, but both of these videos have a lot of good stuff. They'll also drop you into a nice YouTube hole of weathering videos.
For your base rust coat, you can get rust colored primer at hardware stores. It's good to use enamel under acrylic, because it needs to stand up to the process.
I hope that helps.
Excellent idea. Always loved this design.
Thank you!!! I will check these out for sure.
@Tin rocket You're very welcome! Weathering is one of my favorite things.
