The ongoing chronicle and my first attempt at posting Work In Progress shots, this is my entry for the Massive Voodoo Mad Max Car Competition. I'll list them all on my Step by Step page, or you can view the current WIP series.
By the way, we're getting into areas where anyone planning on building vehicles for war can definitely gain some sort of benefit.
HOWEVER, a wash applied and wiped off a few times did tint the clear plastic as you can see with this light.
Looking nice with the cover on.
Then, I applied glue to the bottom of the stove and once again used tweezers to put things in place.
Glue one side down first, let it dry, then the other.
After that, glue the two sides you didn't glue yet. If it's a large enough piece, continue gluing just one side at a time.
Instead of just scratching, I stuck the tip into the plastic and slowly cut down. In some areas I wiggled. The "glass" spider-webbed slightly.
I used a trowel, because it really is the best way to spread and level ground products.
Looking much more cool was the wood that I'm going to pile up in the back as spare. Nothing fancy here - again, just used tweezers to dip wood shavings in Devlan Mud wash, THEN I dipped them in my water container and circled them around. Notice how the wood absorbs most of the paint, so that after rinsing them in water, it creates a really nice natural look. (This looks tons better than the cut up sprues I had planned on using)
(Toothpicks stuck on either side of the bumper to space it properly while the glue dries)
