    1.64, 38 truck, painting the body.

    Was gonna post up all the painting in one hit, but so much going on now, i dont think il get the chance to do much more for a while. ie, next week got a 1to1 all weekender to go to.
    As im doing the 38 Ford as an old rust bucket, the body paint is a major part of the overall look, so im showing how i go about it as others may get idias from it, aspecially as i would paint it allmost in exactly the same way if i was doing it in 1.25th
    Iv allways been very un adveturous with paint, started using Humbroll when i was a kid, & allmost allways still use it now.
    Once the body was ready i first sprayd the bed light brown.

    The bed was then masked up and the bas coat main colour applied, i gave it a mix of vary light blue as i no the weathering will darken it down a lot.

    When it had dried for a couple of days i masked and painted the passenjer door a darker blue, then started spraying the weathering. holding a peice of paper against panel lines etc, fogging red/brown & black in variuose places.

    The airbrushed weathering had dried enough after a week to do more in finer detail, this pic shows how iv used a nackerd small brush to drybrush/stiple streaks of dirt & rust down the side,

    I wanted to do atleast one panel as old bare metal, with diecast the obviuose way would be real bare metal, trouble is the diecast metal would have been to bright. So iv used Humbroll metal coat, goes on mat then bufs up to look like bare metal. the photo makes it look brighter than it is. actually looks a bit like pueter. All thats needed when i get round to it is fogging serfice rust onto the fender then fogging more brown dust & dirt on to the whole thing, then i can black line detail door shuts etc.
