First Serious Attempt with Rust
Posted by les.61 on Thursday, June 08, 2017 1:30 AM

Have brought some Rust paint and chipping compound so thought I would share the build so far. The kit is a 1/32 Mini Clubman from Airfix. It is in the early stages and have put the rust coat on over a primer of grey. Will post more when I get further down the track.

Oh Yeah those body panels are always showing rust  

 

les.61  Good start.  Are you going to have a paint coat over the rust? 

Regardless will be watching with interest

Plan is to use chipping liquid and a top coat of matt white with maybe a bit of yellow or blue to take that "WHITE" colour out a bit. Then do the chipping to make look like old car with chips and worn bits where the rust comes through.

Looking good, interested to see more.

I am curious about the chipping liquid. What is it like and how is it used.

Cheers

I will chime in here, Bainford. Not sure what product the poster has for chipping paint, but I have done a lot of weathering.

 I use an artist masking fluid (like rubber cement) to represent paint that has been chipped off.

 On a bare metal or rust colored base, daub on the masking fluid where desired and after it sets , spray on the body color. When that is dry, simply rub off the  masking fluid and you have a chipped spot.

 To make this more artistic, emblelish the  exposed area with some various washes of thined, different rustic color. 

A little of the rustic wash color can be carefully applied around the edges of the body color itself. A long exposure to the weather can be shown by said rustic washes runnind down from the wounded area.

 Added artistic touches always take your rust efforts to a more believable look.

 There are a lot of tips to be found as you see what other modelers are doing in this most interesting aspect of modeling, such as oxidized paint, salt technique, etc.

Good luck... and have fun!

 Remember doing stuff like this permits you to be less neat about everything. Big Smile

 And, looking over photos of actual rusted vehicles will give you a better feel of what to do and where.

Thanks for the excellent description, Clay.

I do some very light weathering on all my builds to improve realism, but have never tried real hard core weathering. I am always impressed when I see it well done on the forums. I have a couple of truck builds that will need more intense weathering in order to look right. Doing a derilict or barn find car would be fun too.
