I needed a subject to practice paint and weather techniques on. In one of my display cases, way at the back, was a Minicraft 1931 Ford pickup. I believe I put it together 30-40 years ago. The glue was %$#@ and it was falling to pieces. So I dusted it off. Stripped the paint. Gave it a rusty red undercoat. Hairspray. A dirty white top coat.
Then chipped a reasonable mount off. Then I figured I goofed. In my haste I hadn’t sprayed the rear tub. So I brush painted it.
Then out with the oil paints.
At this stage the cab and hood are almost done. I need to tone down the back somewhat. The door hinges are gone so I need to figure out what to do with them.
I guess I’m halfway through the rebuild. A lot of parts are missing after 30-40 years. So rather than a detailed rebuild I aim on ‘junking’ it on a diorama. Weeds, rust and dust!!
Anyway a fun ‘re’ build.
