Here’s a recent build of mine, it’s a Chevrolet gun tractor in 1:35 scale.
It was a couple of firsts for me, first time with the rust and faded markings.
The rust I found looking around a model railway show with a train nut, it’s a two part compound and it develops in a few hours. I have to say I think it’s quite effective,
The second new concept for me is the faded roundel on the roof. That couldn’t have been easier as it’s just given a light over spray with a pale grey colour. I made the remains of the roof tarpaulin from a small piece of tissue dipped in a diluted white glue mix and sprayed with a very thinned green/grey colour.
I usually make aircraft but I did this just for a change and while it has faults I’m quite happy with the way it’s turned out.
