http://www.photohost.org/gallery/data/500/1599DVC00371-med.JPG Gawd! I didnt know I was so good. its nice and it has the primer on.
http://www.photohost.org/gallery/data/500/1599DVC00373-med.JPG OH NO!! I left it under the light a little bit to long.

Bad luck, man! Sometimes we learn valuable lessons the hard way :( I'm sure you will not make the same mistake again.

If you want to properly dry paint invest in a food dehydrator. Make sure to get one with a temp control. I leave mine set around 105 degrees F.

Food dehydrator? PSH! sounds expensive! No more trying to speed things up. I'm just going to do it the old fashioned way..let is siter there for 1 week

Like someone else said, make a crash scene, the patterns where it distorted look like there could be a long pole sticking down in there, or something..

well. I'm not trying to be rude, but when you have a lamp, like that, shit will happen! those generate a load of heat. Personally, to speed it up, use either a food dehydrator, or a regular 75watt bulb 8-12'' away works just fine for me. I hope you can do something with the destroyed pieces.

You know whats crazy. the front bumper is nice and straight. But everthing else is all f***ed up. I left it there to long. i went downstairs to go cook and i came up and it was....[sigh]. oh well how do the food dehydrators run?

i fucked up a tamiya silvia model like that...but i did it with a hair dryer trying to get a warp out of the side...i couldnt feel how hot the hairdryer was...and i didnt bother looking...so i melted the edge of the roof and the A pillar...but im making it all drift damaged so now it looks like its rolled etc.

we all make mistakes...no one is perfect. and if they say they are...they are full of shit

Crash idea sounds cool. But I want to get it to look real...I wouldnt know how to make it look like it got hit. I wouldnt want a cool color car nice and shiny (chances are it wont come out like that) and be all warped...I need to learn how to weather things out and stuff

ProSStreet

you could try and cut out the warped pieces and replace them with crumpled tin foil to look like damage

^ thats a pretty good idea, you can always spray something on the tin foil to help make it more rigid like spray glue etc.. maybe put some putty on it then crumple?

when life throws you a lemon, make lemonade!!

Damn. I melted my Mustang GT bu putting it under a 60W light blub. Damn, i should have made a crash scene...Too bad i ended up turning it into a pan cake (vise sp?) It was a good one too. Perfect paint job too.

I wonder what would happen if you left it under the lights for a week?

You do realise those lights are meant for illuminating building sights - outdoors at night?
They get immensely hot, it isn't hard to burn yourself on them. Best bit is, they only cost about 20 from what I remember.
They're fantastic, my mate uses them mostly to heat his fish in the garage.

As for the car, cut out the bonnet and remove the roof and pillars. Make a mould from the other shell, cast a new resin bonnet and repair the wing. Then make scratchbuilt windscreen pillars and turn it into a cabriolet.....

If you want to make a crash scene, make it look like a construction site and have a pipe or something sitting on top of it. As for weathering, go to Model Railroader. (http://www.modelrailroader.com)

put holes in the car so it would look like one of those cars from movies how they just fliped over and had bullet holes in them
