lum - it's a route 66 casting that was a tow truck to begin with. I had 2 so I chopped the rear bed and tow rig off. the boom is m2 and jl mix.
seajay21 yes the glass is installed. and no I don't plan dirtying it up. if it was just a junk yard truck I would. but this is a working street rig.
mikecast. I use ruddy brown primer from krylon and I bought the 4 step rusting from micro mark. I also bought the 24 chalk pastel box from wally world for 5 bucks. I scrape them making powder and use 70% alcohol to make my own wash. or I will use cheap folk art acrylic paint and thin it down with water or alcohol.
I plan on getting the 12 powders from micro mark very soon.
the key to using what I have is don't over do it. light suttle colors in different areas look more real. I haven't got this down yet. but with practice I will.
thanks again for the comments
