pick-up is built from an AMT kit. As can be seen, I've done quite a bit of
detail work to make the vehicle appear as one that might be found behind some
Midwestern barn. Much of the "dirt" is actually earth-tone artist's chalks
scraped and mixed with a matte medium to hold them in place. There has also
been some heating and bending of the styrene plastic parts. Two of the tires
I hollowed out the lower section that would rest on the ground and heat-deformed
them to appear flattened. Most of all, just time (several months) and attention
detail and a clear vision of what I wanted the finished model to look like.
