M.A.N. - Burnt Out Cab
Posted by tiking on Friday, April 27, 2018 12:28 AM

I have been experimenting lately with different burnt out effects lately. As you can see in some pics I have tried simulating carbon fibers as they literally tear into almost thread-like material, by using disinfection wipes. It looks 'OK' but not quite perfect. I have added more modulation effects on the cab and more weathering on the overall cab and truck as a whole.

 

The right tyre is flat. It is difficult to tell with all the ashes surrounding it. And yes, my reference photo had a similar attribute. I know most would wonder why the right tyre did not get burnt to a crisp like the left tyre...

In most cases depending on the degree of the fire and where it was most intense. I have seen photos with similar attributes.

 

I think , I am satisfied with the results , especially, after taking some outside photos of the model. What do you guys think?

Wow! This is an amazing model. I appreciate the level of detailing involved here. So many technical bits that are normally hidden behind the body and interior trim, but are now exposed. I could look at this thing for hours. The replication of the fire damage is spot on, and must have involved much forethought and research to get so right. Things like the rusted wire carcass of the burnt out tire are excellent and well executed details. I am very impressed. Hat's off to you, sir. Exceptional effort.

Nicely done! If you could flatten that front passenger side tire, I'd have a hard time telling if it's the real deal. Realistic flat tires are hard to do. I've worked on that for decades with mixed results: http://www.shamblesmodels.com/72-chevelle-ss.html

The tyre is flatten, as I explained in the beginning. But the ashes surrounding the tyre deters the viewer from that fact.

Thank you. First of all the ashes are th real thing.

Ok. A short over view of what I did. The effect is rather simple. I used Rust, black, Grey and white pigments. I started off with painting everything with Tamiya Grey ground spray paint. I do not own an air brush.

Then I started off with Mig rust pigment over everything. Then I moisten everything with a AK interactive solution. Then I spray everything with a Matt spray. This fixes the pigments in place as well as gives it a kind of pattern due to the chemical reacting to each other, which I kinda like.

Then I just added Grey, black and different shades of rust pigments little at a time until I got the effect I wanted. I also used white pigments from Humboldt. It helps to have  photo of your reference truck in front of you.

Before I started  I collected many photos of Burnt out trucks to get get an idea of what the different effects look like. That is pretty much it.

Then the last thing I did was used the sponge effect to add some white paint at various areas on the truck, to break up the monotone overall burn effect.

I hope this is helpful.
