Hi All at Scale Auto.
Posted by George123 on Monday, July 17, 2017 6:02 PM

Hi Everyone , I'm a 30 plus year military modeler just recently started building cars.  Ferraris in particular.  Cars require a unique set of skills different from military modeling most apparant in painting gloss, polishing etc, and really little to no weathering.  So I hope I can get some tips from longtime car builders/finishers over here.

G'day George and welcome.  You can put your weathering skills to good use and build some rusted dumped vehicles, barnfinds, smashed up race cars, etc, because in the real world they're not all straight off the showroom floor.  Looking forward to seeing your models.  Cheers
