Man - Burnt out cab
« on: June 02, 2018, 10:41:06 PM »
I have been experimenting lately with different burnt out effects lately. As you can see in some pics I have tried simulating carbon fibers as they literally tear into almost thread-like material, by using disinfection wipes. It looks 'OK' but not quite perfect. I have added more modulation effects on the cab and more weathering on the overall cab and truck as a whole.

The right tyre is flat. It is difficult to tell with all the ashes surrounding it. And yes, my reference photo had a similar attribute. I know most would wonder why the right tyre did not get burnt to a crisp like the left tyre...
In most cases depending on the degree of the fire and where it was most intense. I have seen photos with similar attributes.

I think , I am satisfied with the results , especially, after taking some outside photos of the model. What do you guys think?

The 2 things I noticed were, as you said, the fibres aren't quite right & the seats don't have the zig-zaggy mesh in the back of them that I've seen in burnt out vehicles.

e.g:

Not all vehicles have the zig zag steel wiring you are referring to. And besides, those are car seats. This is a truck and most don't. At least, the ones I've seen in photos. Thanks for looking.

As for the fibers, I already mentioned they were hard to mimic 100%. I used what I could achieve with the materials at my disposal.

Great work on the burned, weathered look.

Very realistic.

Fair enough. :smiley:

Does the business as far as I can see. Certainly one of the best renditions I have seen anyway

IMHO, it certainly looks the part.  That had to be quite the challenge to work out and set up.

What do you guys think?

Needs a to-scale crime scene/accident investigator.

Other than that, it's perfect.

Thanks. It took some research with many pics downloaded from the net. And some questions asked about certain materials reaction when Burnt.

Hi hi! Also doable. If I find suitable figures, I could add them.
