    Thanks a lot guys!
    But you know, those guards are made of styrene. Really enjoy how we can combine different materials to achieve those looks in our tinytruck craft.

    Well, a lot of painting work has begun.
    Made the base layer of brown, then painted yellow by airbrush, but left brown barely visible.








    Then 2000 grid sandpaper until the brown structure begins to be visible.
    The rust on the bumper was made using salt that was sprinkled on wet brown surface and after made scratches with various objects: from the welding electrode, to wooden bars and toothpicks.
    then, using dry brushes, applied spots of rust and continued until it looked like on the photo i used as reference.
    Did some scratches by barely touching the painted body with a brown painted toothpick.
    Well, I also painted reflectors for the future leds, but there’s nothing interesting.





    So far I’ve finished with the front, then everything else is just as scrupulous to go through.
    Favorite part of painting for me.

    A lot of progress, friends!
    I forgot to post a sneak peak of the simple chassis i've built for the Chevy.
    Ar60s from the axial bomber as well as all the links, and trans mount, rear sakura d4 shocks with heavy duty TT01 springs, and team associated shocks from my old sc10 truck. I am planning to build it the same way i did the chassis for the Ford. Also i did not built it on leafs, as i want to try out driving thw woody on wobbly shock setup. There will be no problem to make some leaf springs in the future.



    Ford's chassis.



    Over the past few days, almost finished work on the body painting. I removed some of the rust on the Chevy sides, also I tried the chipping technique with hair spray. Tamiya ts covered the body with matt varnish, after which he sprayed the hairspray on all sides, and then again covered with matt varnish. It was possible to achieve a slight shine in places where the paint did not fade. Satisfied with the result.





    It remains only to paint the rear window seal, quarter lights, and the inside of the bed. But with the rear floors, I’ll figure it out as soon as a some bed wood arrives.
    One of the most difficult parts of the job is the windshield. It is bizarre in shape, so I tried hard for a long time and discovered a good glass manufacturing technique. We stick masking tape with vertical stripes, forming the shape of the glass, after which we cut off the excess and make a glass probe from the plastic folder for the documents. This folder is quite soft, which allows you to easily trim the shape of the glass until it fits perfectly into all the grooves. As the shape was verified, the glass was cut out of Lexan.









    Now I understand that I definitely won’t do Cadillac Deville 59', although I really wanted to.
    So, I painted headlights with chrome, made lenses for the head lights, and for the rear lights. Number plates are there just for the looks. Need to figure out some funny plates.







    Lots of pics today. Hope you enjoy.

    I've been admiring this build for a while, very impressive.

    And now it's yellow and rusty, I like it even more. Perfection mate!

    Just an Idea…..
    Most cameo Bed chevy's had the sun vizor.
    Have you thought about adding one on this work of art ?

    Granted the bed is a little different then on the Cameo style.
