Weathered GB - 17 mucky pups so far


Recommended Posts

How about a GB focused on anything with a heavy state of weathering in it’s finishing?

Could be a fun gallery to look at and exciting to see methods in progress.

it could encompass a plethora of types: Boats, Cars, Aircraft, Trains, Armour, sci-fi, figures, perhaps even dioramas too.

So anyone up for some dirty fun... err ... you know what I mean 🤭

Im in for this one, I've had a wish/desire to do a Davis-Monthan AMARC build for years. If thats not calling for a boat load of weathering I dont know what would be ?

I think that’s a great idea, and we can all experiment as well and watch processes.

I like this idea.  Normally i’m Talking myself out of doing to much weathering, but A group build would be a license for something deeply weathered.

Cool fellas I’ll start a list.

I’d like to learn to do something like this for this GB...

Do you allow "ready" models like railway freight wagons in just to get them weathered, or do they also need to be "built"?

How could I possibly turn this one down, I'm in!

I think we need to construct them, it should be a build.

Hello 😁

 

I don't get to do much weathering on my 144th scale projects, but I'm happy to find a model I can weather up.

 

Does graffiti count as weathering?

sounds fun - some vulcans were in a right state before finally expiring on various fire dumps (XH500, a nice B1a and one of the longest lasting :(). Could do one of those

ah yes poor XL391... Completely butchered, didn't even save the cockpit. Removed it crudely and tried to sell it for too much

The first thing that sprang to mind was my Hasegawa 1/48 Ki84 Hayate, Japanese aircraft weathered pretty badly in many cases so plenty of scope for paint chipping, fading, staining etc. etc.

Yes exactly, good photo @Dansk, another potential victim is a very cheaply bought and long term stash resident Revell 1/48 F14 Tomcat, not a stellar model but it would lend itself nicely to some typical US Navy type staining and general abuse possibly giving the full Monty salt weathering treatment.

Hope this goes through, even though it will be ages off if it does so,

it'll be so much fun.
