Started weathering using Prismacolor Premier pencils. Dip tip in water and rub on sandpaper to get “paint” (can mix colors, no problem)
Apart from the fact that you use Prismacolor pencils to get paint (never heard of that) I especially like your oil residues.

Quote
Oil residue is black and brown oil paints mixed with very fine powdered dirt.
That's something I will try out too. Thank you for the turorial.

Chuck-

Amazing. For the JB Weld texturing (which looks spot on) are you just working it with a brush? Ive seen similar texturing done in 1/35 for castings for armor with Mr. Surfacer but never with epoxy. Very interesting. Also JB Weld seems to remain a bit gummy, has that been an issue at all?

I use a cosmetic sponge to dab it on. It does remain soft for a long while and will "self heal" until it reaches a certain surface cure time (3 plus hours). So I come back and re dab for a while to re-texture. It dries plenty hard (overnite), but can be sanded. I give it a light sanding to knock down the texture a bit.  The JB Quick is too quick for large surfaces and I wish there was an in between version that surface cured faster.

Got the front truss rods installed. Truss rod tips (.025 diameter) made from styrene rod, threaded through a screw plate made from an old watch. Nuts from Scale Hardware.








Also started to weather the inside. The inside details won’t be easily seen when done, but it’s fun to do. Inside debris fastened with liquid Dullcote. Larger pieces with white glue.

That's looking really good, Chuck. How did you do the small numbers on the heavier rods as seen in the first two photos?

Just raised lettering on the 3D model. The prototype had part numbers cast on most of the parts.

Thanks Ray!





Made a bit of progress this weekend. Working my way around the other side and back (actually the front of the hoist). It is bolted down to a handling pallet with an open center for holding during assembly and weathering.

That could easily pass as a piece of real equipment on a shipping pallet.

Beautiful work Chuck!

You're light years ahead of me with weathering.  I really appreciate you describing your methods and posting photos along the way!

Chuck-- This is looking fantastic! Very happy with the plant debris inside and that beat-up rear (front?) beam. Please stay motivated!   DF
