good start Stuart. I like the rust effect so far, even if not yet completed. I also like the bumpy effect of the paint. How did you achieve that?
Hi Marcello I created the rust with mig pigments and chipping and worn effects,rust was applied first then sprayed the car with the main colour then slowly chipped away to revile the rust which gave me the result .
It’s just my way may not be the right way but works for me .
Appreciate your feedback cheers Stu

Looks superb mate, I doubt I could give you any tips you've definitely got a handle on this type of weathering.

Hi Stuart
Decals look fine and the whole effect is very convincing.

Added the decals and scratched through to the rust and added some weathering.
Hope it still looks ok with the decals as I was not sure to add them or not .
What a completely worn out and battered pair of arches they are. Totally perfect.

Hi Stewart,
I'm a further refugee from the MM forum. I'm a military model maker/ bodger........but have a few cars in the stash.........Tamiya Mini's (9) and having owned something like 40 odd over the years.... plus the Tamiya Subaru Impreza WRC'99.
Like the idea of the barn find.. found a few of my previous mini's in similar circumstances. ( bought a 1969 Morris Mini Cooper for my 65th birthday)

What I particularly love is your rust effects.......excellent. Please share how you have done it please.
Looking forward to seeing this progress.
May kick start me to have a go with a car.......:rolling::rolling::rolling:

Cheers Mike :sleeping::sleeping::sleeping:

Looking good Stuart,
If it was me I'd add a little more rust colour to the arches where the white shows through the blue decals. and if your feeling very brave. using a small drill bit, drill some holes in some of the same places make it look like the wing has rotted through.

Another way to make rust holes is scrape the plastic with a curved blade from the inside until the plastic is wafer thin, almost translucent
Then use a pointed blade to carefully stab random holes through the thin bits to create the doily effect of rusted edges

Great work on the arches Stuart they look fantastic rusted and beaten.
Took your advice and went back to them to hopefully make them more realistic and it sounds like it’s paid off, appreciate your feedback and advice Ian
