Another one, Wow Dominik you keep surprising us !!
Love the back story. I bet the bottles of beer helped Horst.
What is the salt method you used ?
17. January, 13:06
Alex K
Fantastic job once again - you are a master in such creations that really do tell a story!
17. January, 18:55

The chainsaw :D I love the story. It amuses me every time I see it standing in your shelf. I enjoy the pictures.

Horst sometimes is a name for not that clever people in Germany - after Kevin *lol*

Lovely build! You should tell Horst about the Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz!
18. January, 09:44
Dominik Weitzer
:-D Thankes mates - much appreciated! As written in another diorama: some special models have to tell a stors. My upcoming (and last former uploaded built) Chrysler will tell a story too.

Nigel, you can use salt for "rusty" paintjobs. Ofcourse, there are a lot of videos to find. but i will try to explain.
First paint the body in a base rust color. than use different colors like ockre, orange, sand and speckle some spots with a sponge
if it is dry, make the model wet with water
than place salt on the parts you will have rusty spots
let the water dry!
now paint the body with the color you will have
after it is dry, take a brush to remove the salt.

Two problems to keep in mind:
- if the water is not dry enough, the paint (today i use waterbased paints) will get off while you rub the salt away with a brush
- if it is too dry, a lot of salt will blown away while paiting with an airbrush.
the second problem you can minimize, if you use more salt on the spots and "calculate" the amount that will "blow away" during the painting.

since it was my first attempt with this methode, i used acrylic paint out of a rattle can...for the orange. That worked "terrible" - because the acrylic "glued" the salt underneath the layer of pait *lol* . that wasn't planned that way and i had a lot of work to get it clean.

Love it - I have a 62 pickup like this in my garage.
18. January, 15:44
Nigel Chapman
Thanks Dominik, I've never heard of using salt before - something to try. My method is to use real rust from degraded steel wool filtered to powder form.
18. January, 16:57
Ben M
Interesting Nigel. I've done salt effect on a sheet of plastic before to try it out. I used table salt, which resulted in some pretty regular patterns. I think I need to break the salt up into more irregular pieces next time. I am building a tank so maybe a nice subject to try it on. I really like the rust on this type 2. I was looking for a picture of my truck before I repainted it, can't easily find one, but it sure looked similar to this one. Great work!
18. January, 17:41
Dominik Weitzer
your welcome Nigel. I only used once real rust also....and spieces (also once on my gone 58 Thunderbird)...always trying new methdes but also come back to methodes i "can". Meanwhile i use cracking fluid and airbrushcolors (see my WIP BMW 507). Modeling for me is continuing lerning process
18. January, 19:21

Me too. Look out for my rusty build coming soon

This timestamp is so cool! I don't have one in my shelf with the day of built on it! I have to go through my paper pictures and I'm sure, it is on some of the pictures - in red and white. I'm sure.

Dominik Weitzer
Thank you mates , much appreciated
Chris, this is the only one with a date on it! i was surprised by my self :-D
Spanjaard, the challenge is to keep my hands down, not to restore it "again". As i built it first, it was (i'm not sure was it unpainted plastic before) red with white roof. Perhaps, i can find a picture.
In that time, it was "a kind of ugly" also ;)
Thanks Neuling ;)
17. January, 12:06
Christian W
It was molder in black plastics. I can remember, that the black came hrough at the edges.
17. January, 15:46

mine is in need of full restoration... I did the model 20+ years ago, then decided to redo it, but never finished it. there is still hope for it.
17. January, 19:36

show it spanjaard ;) those old veterans are too nice not to be shown.
Mine will defenitily stay in this condition. of course, i will glue the fallen parts in place
18. January, 15:49
Spanjaard
I would love to. But last thing i did with it was disassembly it and repaint some parts ... I have my early builds, or my "Hall of shame" (1990's) | Album by hetspanjaard , but unfortunately, no pictures of this one when was still assembled.... :(
18. January, 17:27

i was doing it in black, but it looks amazing in other colors like your choice

That is still a problem at Revells decals. Often they aren't historical correct. That sucks. Positive is that it is and old one and not a plate of today :)

Thank you very much for your comments - mauch appreciate it a lot!
I've built it nearly ten years ago (started in mai 2011) and often i take a look on it to get ideas and "how have i made this..."-thoughts.
Nigel, the seat covers (and headliner) are made of Napkins soaked with a water-glue mixture. the soaked napkins can perfect be placed, wrinkled and teared. if it is dry you can choose any coler to paint or weather it.
The same technique i used on the 58 T-Bird or Cloths and curtains on the different campers in my colletion
10. January, 12:41

I think it's likely eight to nine years ago. It was before I met my current wife ;)

The Idea to mix it with a front engine chassis was an awesome idea that time. Astonishingly fitted the chassis very good under the body. Wohld be interessting to convert a real one into a front engine beast.

There's still nine left.
Seven in museums and two privately owned.
All the museum examples had their turbine blades removed by Chrysler.
One museum has restored the turbine to working order both private ones are fully working.
Apparently they were never made on mass due to a lack of fuel economy.
Which is a real head scratcher because when has that been a major consideration with a vehicle from a country known for its gas guzzlers
