Very nice! (y)

Would it be possible to post the photos of the real one as well?

Thanks!
Sorry, but they were laser-printed 'glossies' from the customer's PC, and he left with them.
I'll ask if he can shoot them to me on email.

I misread the way you worded the question.
Jus' so you understand, the photos I went by weren't of an NW Geep... they were examples of severely rusted various steamers and diesels.
He circled areas of the types of rust and corrosion he wanted.
Sorry I misunderstood.

What did you use on the trucks to highlight and shadow and get that dirty metallic look? I'd like to try that myself.

Mostly drybrushed grays.
Some 'Grime', which has a 'Mystic-paint' pearlescent quality under certain lighting.

Payloader
(nearly HO scale).

Contract job for a club member.

This is a Matchbox item, but it's very close to 1:87... next to Wiking, Norscot, and Sheepscot loaders it's not noticeably bigger.
A few mods, e.g., roof beacon.

Messy Tangent G43C
With some scatter, litter, & jetsam.


It's actually a PC (green) car, but it's been kinda rusted up.
This is sort of the way I remember some gons looking, either 'before full' or 'after empty'.

One of these days you should weather a hotwheels vehicle. They're so ugly from a model standpoint, but I bet you could still make them look like a thing of beauty.

That's a cheap plastic deckbridge over a creek in Worlee. I thought it'd be a good setting.
Spencer helped us lay the water in last week... I held my breath the whole time.
I guess I'm a worry wart.
