Gonna lay back and watch Blues Brothers tonight with popcorn, Sour patch Kids and a pallet of brown, rust, black and white washes, and finger paint weathering, damage, dirt and such on the body.
Its really kinda fun weathering a diecast body. If you overdo it or it doesnt come out right, you just rub it away with wet fingers :)
Really love the interior, as it is so spot on. You will have to cut out the 8 track player, and scrtchbuild and install a new one, as the real BLUMO had a radio removed, with a large hole, and a 8 track stuffed in, not a factory 8 track like on the diecast. Cant fin the correct steering wheel, so I'm gonna use a close one (71 Duster kit) and Elmers Glue it on till I find the right one.
The wheels! I MUST find correct rims! Besides the door window frame and steering wheel, the wheels are just AWFUL! They look like primitive toys, or some sort of custom alloy pimp thing.
Broken Glass guys.....some guys on my miniature wargaming terrian site said you can actually make a simple mold from tin foil or sculpy, and use the suger water to cast a window, and it can be cracked/shattered to look super real! Evidently its a Hollywood FX trick in 1/1 cale, and is just as good in small scale! I'm gonna try it! I hope my GF doesnt think I'm Breaking Bad when she finds solid crystals in tin foil in my kitchen :) :) :)
If it works Im gonna make a tutorial
