Another Custom Project

A shoutout to TFritch, because without trying he reminded me that I didn’t share the other 1/55 Jada F&F car I got. The one I actually customized, and am planning on building a diorama for it. I bought this one for it’s wheels as well.

Painted it white, the color was too weak. So I washed it off.

Then things took a turn for the interesting. Using a brown oxide looking paint, I dabbed a sponge brush into it, and gently applied it to the car. I love the results, and I’m eagerly awaiting to try it on a 1/24 car for that diorama.

Looking at these pics again, I’ve added taillights too, so these pics are a tad old.

The project is currently on hold because I need to invest my time in my other projects, :p. But I won’t forget about it. I’m thinking of picking up a few more Jada 1/55 cars to steal the wheels, and rust the body. Then perhaps I can make a small car graveyard. That's the plan at least, :).
