Exceptional weathering technique. Loving that engine bay too. Well done!

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

One detail that keeps blowing me away, is the sugaring of the paint around the deck lid. How did you do that if I may ask?

A hard task comes to life. Great job. The hood springs are very convincing too and where did you get the lug bolts and nuts.?Cool Those really pop.

Around the deck lid to simulate duct tape residue I use little bit off flat white on a sponge. The sponge is from the packing material in a package I received.

I use Hex braided line Fittings .025 from Ted modeling marketplace for the wheel nuts.

Plastic tubing for the bolts

I later found HEX strip from ''Evergreen'' or another plastic supplier, its alot cheaper but you need to drill a hole in them.

Huh! I would likely have tried a light grey but the job you did looks spot on.
