Forklift
« on: December 31, 2020, 09:10:49 PM »
Weathering a forklift for my present diorama I am working on at the moment. I used the sponge technique, as well as, a sharp X-to knife for the scuffed and scratches areas. I then used light dust, and dark brown colors from Citadel. This will be on a diorama I am presently working on.

Looking pretty good, there, mate! :smiley:

Will obviously look even better in the diorama. ;)

Outstanding weathering!  :smiley: The little scratches, the subtle dusting,.... The dusty area next to the seat that looks like a dusty area caught a bit of rain looks very convincing!  :-*

With good deal of forklift driving hours, must say it looks genuine.  Pallet too.  :smiley:

That's so good, I'd suspect a "shrink ray".  Beautiful!
