Time for more detailing and weathering. This time with some Tamiya Panel Line Black, Again started on the radiator as it wouldn't be seen in the model, and was interesting to use so started doing some more bits and pieces and eventually got a first pass on and the model really started to come to life the uniform colour started changing and there was more detail all of a sudden. Loving this.
Tried to have another crack at the rust effect this time with AK Track Rust pigment and mixed with a fixer and painted on and the effect was underwhelming to say the least. Probably did something wrong there. But will have another go at some point.
After applying the black panel line to chassis, front clip and floor pan, another dry test fit was in order and the Chesterfield Lounge like finish on the seats had to go, I can't imagine the trucks would have been that luxurious looking and another search online supplied some images showing some light sandy yellow coloured seats.
So Tamiya XF-57 Buff came to the rescue, this seems to fit so much better. Just some more weathering to go after the paint dries.
Things are starting to interesting now can't wait to see more details come to life with the weathering still to come.
Until next time.
