Hey, the paint and texturing came out quite nice. Rust streaks and stain spots on box lids are a nice effect.

I also have one of these still sitting in the box though. The work you've done on yours certainly provides motivation to get something done with it.
You have a really good looking piece of equipment here...well done and thanks for sharing.
Cheers.

Cool. I've heard about the Dr. Ben's stuff. Have you used it in conjunction with acrylic paint washes?

Later,

ive had nothing but positive experience with those products... the "realistic rust" however is very orange out of the jar, has to be mixed a bit with some of the darker. ive tried many techniques, this product thinned with alcohol is by far the easiest and it doesn't come off in your hands when dry. I haven't had the need to seal it in with dullcote either. for trucks , they have an aged rust that is spot on. simply wash the whole thing with brush and you are pretty much done. and the larger jars help out with g scale since you use more. I use acrylics for the more detailed oils stains / rust pitting etc
