    Hey Oli great effort for a first jeep wreck...

    I would have done a whole jeep personally but I think you were following a photograph hux?
    Maybe I would have added some rust variations to break the colour up but it definately looks realistic!
    Pity I missed it at the club Crying or Very sad
    One day I have to build both a jeep and a wreck.... Twisted Evil

    Interesting and well done Oliver! A wreck is quite a challenge but you got it right first time.

    This is your best jeep so far mate!

    I would consider Docs advice I would play around to break the colour more, though surely from the pics you can't really judge ... but I think might help, some filters , the addition of the amazed figure would surely add interest to the wreck ...

    You should do the other part in a seperate dio LOL!

    this jeep seems to have a small mishap Suspect , just got a few nics Shocked Great work Oliver and great idea. I agree with the doc and Ivan, but just a question, how long does rust take on after a fire?

    looks the part
    i would follow advice given by adding some more oxidized metal and rust effect oil washes of burnt siena and mars brown with different rust pigments should do the trick but be careful not to overdo it.

    Olly

    Take a look at these KOs for some inspiration, courtesy of MIG production ... OK these are extreme rusty wrecks, but still inspiring work by MIG.

    Looking really good Oli, but again if you listen to the advice given I'm sure it will turn out to look great.
