Just an amazing attention to detail after detail. This just might be your finest car modeling effort to date.
Thanks Joel. This is my first time attempting such comprehensive weathering, but I have spent a lot of time on YouTube and picked up several publications on the art, so I just need to step up and put it into practice now.
Some primer shenanigans last night. The first time I have tried an AMMO by Mig product, "One Shot Primer Brown Oxide", and it fought me all the way! The label says to use unthinned, minimum 0.3 tip, 20-30psi, light coats to build up the coverage. Well my dual-action is a 0.25 tip so I played it safe and dragged out old faithful Paasche-H. I tried various pressures within the recommended range, I tried all three tip sets (#1, #3, #5), and I tried from unthinned up to about 50% MLT. I had non-stop tip clogging and spidering at every turn.
In the end I basically used the #3 tip wide open at about 25psi and just had to keep unclogging the tip, and then misted on a light coat of neat MLT to give the top layer the opportunity to even out. The finish is just barely OK, and I'm not sure that I will bother with this product again. I will try a couple of alternative Oxide primers for my rust basing and put this bottle into quarantine for the moment.
I will let Jack Nicholson sum up how I'm feeling right now
