1/24th Revell Shelby Mustang
What to do when a model kit isnt that great? make it look worse.
the 'crash diorama' is always a plan b for me, in case i mess a kit up, but in this instance it was well thought out and planned before i even touched the kit, as it was a commision. I built it live on stream over a few months, as there was no real time limit to get it done, as some of you may have seen.
The weathering is done with AK weathering pencils (urgh) oils, enamel based washes, as well as pigments. The diorama was made from Balsa wood and VMS universal terrain brown, flocked with citadel glade grass, grass clumps a from army painter, and a few other bits i cant remember (the bushes and the leaves etc).
The fence was made from 1cmx1cm wooden rods, and the metal fence panels were from sunnimix.
The client was very happy with it, but im a bit meh about it, as im not sure red was the best colour to weather, as it doesnt show veryt well, but, it wasnt up to me, so i guess i can be fairly satisfied with the outcome.
