    Well done. I like the blending, wet or airbrush?

    Hello and Thank you.

    The Large 1:24 scale models are all airbrushed.
    However the smaller 1:64 scale models are all base coated with aerosol spray colours first.
    and then drybrushed with various shades and the I have used coloured pencils to pick out sharper colours like streaks and rust.

    I use light passes of mat clear coat sprays between different colour applications so they don’t blend into each other…or smudge each other.
    this is really useful where the Coloured Pencils are concerned.
    you need a mat finish in order to draw on the body of the vehicle to bring out the rust or grime your drawing on……pencils dont like drawing on shiny surfaces.
    but with a mat surface, its easy. then just spray over another clear mat coat to seal the pencil work in.
    I then give a last light drybrush after that.
    helps pick out the highlights.

    All the best,
    Barry.

    Carrying on with the “Jack Hammer” Station wagon….now Pickup.
    The chassis has been completed and the whats left of the body is almost completely covered in styrene sheet and strip sections.
    its now an 80% scratch build with just the front half plastic body of the hotwheels car and the Zedge Industries wheels making up the rest.
    this model has turned into an extensive build…..lot of work gone into a little model !

    Carrying on with the build,
    I have added lots of Narly battle damage and surface wear to the body of the model with a soldering iron.
    and sprayed it with a red oxide primer and a few passes of various browns for the basic surface finish.
    I will soon give it an ink wash, then start the detail paint finish and build the 360′ weapon to go above the the rear deck.

    Thanks Goof.

    Yes that was built a few years ago now, and repainted some time after.
    its nice to be building more cars again in this smaller scale.
    I am intending to build that Willys truck and a few others in the 1:64 scale.
    also really like the game !
    having more fun playing this than X wing !

    All the best,
    Barry.

    Thank you Tohian and darkframboisie.
    Glad you like the builds, All the best.
    Barry.

    The new racer, your question about the buggy is a bit vague. do you mean the model itself or what parts to use in a build.

    My Hot Rod build is what I use for the Buggy clarification. as its a light vehicle
    open wheeled and lighter than a car so wouldn’t stand the same impact as car.
    but light and nimble like a buggy,
    So that’s what I use.

    All the best,
    Barry

    New Build.
    Race Car for my Wasteland Clan, built for the Performance Car rule slot.
    should be handy in the Death Race scenario.
    the model is the Hot Wheels “Power Pistons” Plastic bodied car.
    this one was nice and easy, took two hours to build and a few more hours to paint.
    enjoyed this one a lot because it came together so quickly.
