You can use the old modelling trick of cheesecloth or tissue stiffened with watered down white glue. Or use actual fabric. An old t-shirt or maybe hit the local fabric stores.

Greetings.


THANKS SPAZ. The connestoga cover on the back is the right sleeve off of an old, tan, Bugle Boy shirt. I cut the shapes out, then used thinned-down Rust-All for the shading and weathering. The base kit was actually a Dodge Ram VTS show truck, modified to look like a Ford. A lot of the little bits are just 1:35 military items and 1:24 mechanic/NASCAR/diecast gear.


And yes, there is 12 scale-pounds of dynamite under it...all set to blow.


Sneek Peek: I'm also working on the MACK B-61 after they escape from Thunderdome and lose the trailerhouse car.

Greetings. The big crate in front is styrene plates and strips. The rest of them are from 1:35 military accessory kits (mortar/shell/fuel cans and boxes) and 1:24/5 automotive parts kits. The canvas roll on the fender and the one on the firewall is some more of the shirt sleeve. The grating on the fenders and inside the engine bay is replacement screendoor screen. The seat is from a 1:18 Lamborghini Diablo. The instrument panel is a 71 Plymouth GTX. The camel chains are cheap $4.00 "box" necklaces from WallyWorld (Wal-Mart/K-Mart). The rust and red "Devildust" is a combo of painting the truck black, then dry brushing it with Testors Rust, then going over it all with Rust-All dirt and Iron Oxide. It's all just thrown together from there.


Hope it helps.
