      Lovers of shiny, perfect surfaces need not apply.This is where we get to have fun being like messy kids again.Anything goes,the dirtier,messier,disorderly,unmilitary or whatever you want to call it, the better.There is a part in all of is that likes a little chaos now and then, so this will be the thread for that.
      Lots of books have been written of how to get that perfect ,factory fresh finish,well this is at the other end of the scale and ten times the fun.Call it the "dark side "of modeling where freedom reigns ,where there are no rules and regs beyond what pleases you.Where you can take that perfect surface and totally screw it up .Just paid 50 bucks for that limited edition diecast? No problem ,lets get the old sandpaper out and give it some character.Just spent all that time building that perfect model that just looks like all the others?Want to make it yours and yours alone, well get out those hammers and saws.Art is not always about the creation of the beautiful ,in fact that can be downright boring.Art is also about wear and tear,things getting old ,just like in real life.Take a look around you,does nature plant trees in rows?Is there only one kind of blue flower?Does that perfect leaf not have a little fungus on it?
      Artists who take on the role of "creator- destroyer "of their own self -made worlds, are only then truly free to do their thing.
      Anyway,enough of that,lets see what I mean.................

    This may be an extreme example but you get the idea.

    Will done John! I'm curious, are those a couple of die cast cars or...........heaven forbid.......Pochers? Next time you do a weathering Weathering,the fun part! project, could you do it as a tutorial?

    Can't say enough about your work. Fascinating!!

    Hi Rick! They are both the same 1/18th diecasts.I just took one apart and weathered it like it had spent decades in an old barn.
    I plan to do lots of "how to's" in the future.

    Would love to see as many how to's as you can come up with.

    This subject can be somewhat intimidating to some builders and theres so many ways to go about it. Thanks for the pic's I look forward to your tutorials.

    Wow, that's great weathering Weathering,the fun part! . I want to learn how to turn a Duesenberg into a Junkenberg. A tutorial would be just the thing. Again, great work.
