First Build of 2018 - Rust Bucket
Posted by KWT on Sunday, January 14, 2018 12:02 PM

With the craziness of work, Christmas, and my mom's accident/recovery, I've not had any bench time as of late. Everytime I sit down at the bench, I start to doze off... so I generally just go to bed. I had this one painted up a couple months ago for a quick build.. This is the Revell/Monogram "Black Widow Hot Rod", rusted out with the modern finishes that I've used before. The winter weather hit here yesterday, so a glue-in I began... finished it up today.

Decent kit... small part count, but I honestly don't care how many parts a kit has. Little flash here and there. But it builds up nice. I still have to add the plate I'm making for it... "RST BKT"

as always Thanks for looking...

Plenty of rust and chrome... cool!

The kit is molded all in black, and chrome plated parts. I painted the "iron" paint all over the main body parts. Then covered in the rusting solution and placed inside a plastic bag to let it do it's thing. 2 days later, I had this beautimus pile o'rusted out car.

You can check out the rusting stuff. It's call "Sophisticated Finishes Rust Antiquing Set".

Well that sounds like something ive never done nor even heard about before.

Ive rusted real steel fuel tanks etc with vinegar,mustard,some acids but you tell me you can use iron oxide(?) On top of models paint and make it rust in a bag.

I will definetely look upon that,thanksYes
