Lovely work on the muthaship build. There's so many details to admire, in addition to the sheer scale of the thing.  :-*

Wonderful!  :-*

A home away from home indeed. A second hand SCUD launcher vehicle could well make the ultimate camper. Just don't expect to park downtown...  lol

Wow!  That Muthaship is amazing.  So much detail, but it all looks useful and right.  Must start at the beginning of the thread at some point.

Just took a look at the Muthaship itself.   The model looks like a modded SCUD carrier.  I had one myself at one time.  Good choice.

All of the little scatter details, that makes a huge difference in upping the realism for your games and models - well done here and well worth emulating.

The tires - start off a dark brown color, and are washed (not dry-brushed) with a dark honey tan.   This simulates the dirt that gets into tires when driving off-road.   Water and mud get into the crevasses and dry there, giving this kind of look.   Dry-brushing is OK if your vehicle sticks to the roads, but in a PA setting you'll want to do just like this one here.    Color very dark brown, wash thoroughly with dark honey tan, let it dry.   Then maybe, only maybe dry-brush here and there with a very dark grey, and only lightly!    Maybe hit the tire outer corners with a light tan.   

The rusted, pitted paint - man, you know what you're doing.   The best place to find out how vehicles age in nature is to go out and look at some!   Go to a junkyard and check out the rusty junkers.   If you're lucky to have abandoned military vehicles in your area, go take some photos!   If you're not, look online to see where the dark parts flake off, where the shinier or greasier wear marks are, and in this case, the overall pitting effect that old paint has if it's been sitting rusting in the yard for years.  I'm guessing but this looks like the salt rust method, which works very well on plastic models.   Anyhow, well executed.

All you young bucks take a good look.  Make your stuff look like this and draw 'em in to your game!

Thanks very much KD47. I must confess the wheels were made easier by the fact the model came with rubber tyres. That meant I didn't need to paint them brown. Just two washes, brown and then the tan/khaki for sand. And you're right, the main body is salt and hairspray with a few touch-ups using the sponge rust technique (red brown, dark brown and grey-black).

This thread is incredible...8 years running! Cheers!

I had to go back and check this - 8 years! Damn. I'd lost track of time. I guess it's kept me off the streets and out of jail.

Just astonishing.   The biggest takeaway I've seen is the value of persistence.  While life got in the way, you kept plugging along.  Amazing, amazing job.

Well, life got in the way again. But, with thanks to BlackMetallic for the kind words, back to plugging along.

I’ve been working on some supplies and salvage for the Muthaship. Much more to come, but take this as proof of life…

That only works if you include a newspaper with today's date!   lol lol lol

Glad to see that you are still plugging along.  This whole thread is still some of the nicest work that I have ever seen.  New details always seem to appear when looking back at the photos.
