I'll be interested to hear about your chipping fluid adventures. I tried Vallejos chipping fluid and it was awful. The model ended up in the bin, but perhaps I was using it wrong. The instructions weren't very explicit......


I tried the Vallejo chipping stuff and your right Mark its awful stuff as was the blue masking fluid but to be honest it had gone off a little in the bottle. I have seen peeps using PVA so I tried a little here and there off a toothbrush but yet to rub it off. I was a little worried that the blue was too white but to the naked eye and up against the roof it contrasts really well and with all the weathering should :pray: look ok.

I have some different Alclad warpigs weathering pigments but have no fixing fluid, can Tamiya thinners be used.

I’d have thought any solvent could be used as long as it doesn’t damage the underlying paint.
MIG do two types. One is a pure solvent. The other had a resin in it, which fixes the pigment permanently. The solvent leaves a possibility of making adjustments after its dried, but don’t expect to be able to remove it completely.

Thanks Mark
I think my next purchase will be some weathering oils or washes and some fixer.
I was happy with the salt so started to add two shades of grey to the inside and roof. I love the way the salt sits inside the Van, it looks a lot like gravel but as soon as its dry its coming off. Depending on how it looks I may leave a little here and there. The fine table salt gives a good texture and hopefully will give some small specs of rust.

Coming on a treat Casper. The salt still there looks like bubbling paint, but I’d be worried about it absorbing moisture over time. It might not be very stable.

I kinda like the way the paint bubbles and left it for now until the remainder of the van is painted but I didn't think about moisture Mark good point :think:
When all painted I will give it the once over before paint.
my masking :lol: should do the job

One side at a time with salt placed only around the areas affected with rust.

Last of the panels painted in light blue before lettering was gently applied, then a mist of light blue with a touch of off white before removing the letters. I really wanted smaller lettering in a different type face but these will do for what I need. I wanted it to look like the stick on lettering was removed overtime and left a sun kissed look :think:
Hopefully you can see the different paints used, grey for the interior.

Remove the remainder of the salt. The finer table salt really takes some getting off

Bumpers next :)
same process as before a coat of red brown primer with some light rust here and there then salt. When dry a few coats of off white then a gloss clear coat before removing the salt about an hour later.

I used up the red brown primer on very low pressure to add some rust to the chrome parts, it came out ok and better than stripping and starting again.

went a bit too heavy on the badge :think: but you can clean the part and do it again you wish before a clear coat

Dry fit
I just need to paint the inside of the doors and front section grey and then the clear coat can be added,I can then concentrate on the seats and dashboard.
Oh and the roof lining needs doing as well :roll:
Haven't decided what windows will be fitted :think: all depends on the diorama, I'm looking for a suitable base to put it on. I managed to find some DAS modelling clay Morris in my local art shop and it was half the price of e-bay :D
Not decided what to do with the left door yet :think: its still in primer.

Coming along nicely, the rust is looking realistic. Those chrome wheel trims looking realistically good :clap:

Thanks for your kind comments guys :) much appreciated
This is my first attempt at building a rust bucket and my first go at salt chipping, Its pretty easy to do to be honest as long as you place the salt where the rust would most likely be and then rub it all off again after the paints dry.
I started to add some Tamiya weathering master orange rust to the bumpers, door, roof and front section, the bumpers look a bit too orange but with a q-tip or brush dipped in thinners you can remove or blend till you get the desired look. A lot of the rust affects around the damaged areas looks a little flat but these areas will be worked again later with pigments and washes. Gotta watch I don't over do it :think:
