Re: When things go bad

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

Re: When things go bad

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

Re: When things go bad

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

Re: When things go bad

^ 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!!

Re: When things go bad

Re: When things go bad

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

Re: When things go bad

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.
