Atlas 'Big Foot' 1/32 scale die-cast Excavator Weathering

May 12, 2022 · in Automotive · · 12 · 1.5K

This was given to me as payment for weathering the farm models I posted not too long ago. I kept the weathering at a minimum on this scale die-cast model. This will later go on a diorama specially built for it, which I've just finished and will post very shortly . I painted the stop blocks hanging on the front of the excavator, yellow to break up the grey color. I also painted a couple of the railings a different color than the original grey scheme. Probably wasn't necessary but I thought it would break up the monotone look of the overall model. Hope you like the results guys.
