Re: Representing paint failure

Don’t overlook the technique of ragged edge cloud and mountain spray masks.

Do the like in a smaller version for sections like worn galvanized roofs. You’ll feather the edges of the applied paint with the method.

It might work with a coarse spray generic airbrush or paint-bomb. You’ll certainly have great control and results if you use a fine tip, fine spray airbrush in that step.

Best to ya,

If all you have is a hammer, then every problem is a nail.  Take on old car and experiment.  The cars that didn't come out like I expected are just consist cars, not contest.  Youtube has lots of good examples, although many are poor quality videos.  Use different types of paints, and when used in the right order you get great results.  Take a look at what the plastic modelers (ie, airplane) are doing. Lots of great ideas out there.
