Very nice build Frank! There has been some great ideas, and planning, that went into these Box cab Critters. I like the speaker mounting screws idea, and I'm sure that speaker puts out some volume. [:-headphones]

Thanks Louis. I had several speakers from different salvaged items around the house. And those sounded the best of what I had.

First up with the weathering process is to give the model a coat of dead flat to give the pan pastels something to grab onto. I use Tamiya Flat Clear, this stuff is "dead" flat. The pastels I used were Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber Tint and Black. I apply them with various brushes depending on the location. Big brush, flat brush, pointy brush. After each application of color I give the model a very light spray of Krylon Matte Finish to seal the powder.

If you donít seal after each application youíll just smear everything around and make mud. I made several applications of each color and sealed each one until I got the desired density.









Then I used Burnt Sienna craft paint for the rust specks. Itís not necessary to seal them since they are paint and not powder. The next step will be to add the rust shadow with Transparent Orange Oxide oil paint applied very light with a dry brush technique.

Nice, Frank. Not too heavy. And the burnt sienna looks good with the blue tape "shades" :)

I thought Jerry would be all over this last post. Jerry where are you?

THANKS Mike and Mike.

Bill, do you think the blue is too presumptuous? Maybe Iíll tone it down with white curtains.

Frank, "bluegill" is my heritage, rendering me too biased to speak objectively :)
