MAN – Burnt Out Cab
I have been experimenting lately with different burnt out effects, on various vehicles. After doing the burnt out car, I just decided to go ahead and try a truck. In the earlier stages I had to re-do some parts and scratch built parts in certain areas to get the right effect. The steel thread on the rim is electrical wiring. It is not perfect but it is as close as I could get to simulating the torn Tyre effect, revealing the steel thread underneath.
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. I think , I am satisfied with the results , especially, after taking some outside photos of the model. What do you guys think?
