Patina Paint Effects Ford Popular

Based on a 1/43 scale Lledo Vanguards model, this 1960 Ford Popular has been repainted in rusted patina paint. This was achieved by wet sanding into the top coat, which had been applied as lightly as possible. Additional effects were dry brushed, and a couple of coats of clear flat were applied. The front registration plate was removed from the bumper, and mounted on the radiator grille using a piece of plasticard. While not based on any prototype, 883AXU was a real car, albeit one that was scrapped years ago.
