The completed frame with primer. Roller-bearing journals are from Grandt Line, as are the wheels (which have been modified by the addition of the drilled holes). Frame was primed with Mr. Surfacer 1000; the wheel bearings were primed with Mr. Surfacer Resin Primer  after parts were scuffed with a fiberglass brush.
 

 

 

Base color (a mix of Tamiya; Hull Red, Brown, and Yellow), with a fine splattering of very diluted Life-Color "Orange Rust"

 

 

After a coat of matte clear, and a couple of coats of hairspray, the frame and wheel bearings were painted with a mix of Tamiya "Nato Black" and "White", to give a faded black appearance.

 

 

This was followed by a random sponge application of Life-Color Tensochrome "White"., give a mottled chalky feel to the black paint. The paint was then chipped using a variety of small brushes. As one can see in the images at some of the edges and high points I scrubbed a bit too hard and wore through to the primer.
