Thanks Marc,
I did "map" on the real parts.
We'll see what you think when I post the pics.
I did the tank, and hopefully can post a pic tomorrow.

The techniques are very interesting. Please continue on. Here is what we are doing and I want to make the boards look like they are peeling paint and rust is coming through on the metal bracing. Suggested colors of the various layers are of much interest.

John,

It looks interesting, but unfortunately the pic is very unclear, and heavily pixelated, so it doesn't really show the weathering very well or clearly, to properly comment. Sorry.

...also...what scale?

Marc

Sorry about that. The picture was shot at a much higher resolution and wouldn't post, so I kept making it smaller until I got to that point. The model is resin and brass and is 1/32 scale. Uncle Russ has seen them and can tell you the level they are at. Here is a closer shot without paint.

I do have two other questions if I might impose on you. First you speak of using hair spray as a barrier. A barrier to keep all those wonderful wimmen who chase you about from mussing your hair? Can you elaborate? Also, Future floor polish. What is it about that you use other than keeping the shop floors nice and shiny?

John
