But was a total waste of time as when the floor is on only the tyre edge can be seen.
To punish him for his stupidity I manifested insects under Petes skin (that boy can really dance when he wants to lol !)

If you are wondering where the step by step pictures for the weathering of the wheels are, then try this link
http://www.this is a made up web adress// Pete forget to take any.hades.com

So that's then, I must say it's been a real pleasure updating this for Pete and I hope I get another chance real soon, so until then, remember to keep those souls minty fresh and at room temperature for me
And I'll see you all in your nightmares

Your devilishly evil friend

Fluffy

Thank you very much Nigel !

Back in the days when I was a mortal, we didn't have such things as plastic models and the Internet, but I was quite skilful with a bit of Flint and a mammoth tusk, I spent many an hour sitting in my cave whittling up a nice little objet d'art out of a piece of bone , my wife used to call them my boners, I can still hear her saying "stop playing with your boner and get out and hunt us some dinner you useless skinny layabout" she had a way with words did my Deidre.

And yes I do miss my body, it's not easy being a disembodied skull, although I don't miss the backache, I was a martyr to me back

Update time again, no Fluffy today (I don't want him getting a big skull) so you will have to put up,with me for a bit

I wanted to get the underbody painted today and needed to prime the plastic. I bought a couple of cans of this primer a little while ago from the 99p store, but I have been a bit hesitant to use it on a kit in case it melted it or something lol ! But I figured it couldn't do too much harm so I decided to give it a whirl
20150505_112353 by brundledonk, on Flickr
Literally 10seconds later I had covered the chassis, this stuff breaks the sound barrier when it comes out, seriously any quicker and it would have been primed before I got the lid off the can !
It's quite thick and a very dark grey, but it dried to quite a smooth finish, you just have to be really quick with the back and fourth action or you risk completely annihilating the part !
Oh yeah one other thing IT STINKS ! Man I'm not kidding, even with the spray booth running the Petecave was a gas chamber ! I had to evacuate and let the fallout settle before I could go back in there
20150505_112406 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I wasn't certain if the noxious fumes had fallen to a level low enough to sustain organic life, so I sent Lisa down first (hehehe Canary sprang to mind here) when I was certain she hadn't passed out, I ventured down and gave the chassis a light coat of Tamiya hull red
I didn't worry about getting full coverage as I wanted a little of the grey to show through for the later stages

I ripped the green bit off of one of those washing up sponge things, covered it in masking sol and did this
20150505_115122 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And over the top of that with a light coat of Tamiya german grey
Now I'm not going to sugar coat this, but what is about to unfold is basically a series of pictures of the same part getting covered in masking fluid and then being over sprayed with ever increasing shades ending in black, it's not exciting, in fact It bored me to tears actually doing it, so I won't be offended if you just scroll down to the finished part, in fact I urge you to do it, reading it will only eat up,time that you will never get back and could use for something more productive, like mowing the bedroom carpet or something
20150505_115533 by brundledonk, on Flickr
More Sol and then Tamiya Nato black
20150505_120516 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And if anyone is still there and hasn't spat in the goldfish bowl and kicked the dog due to the complete drudgery of it all
Yes you guessed it more Sol and wait for it Tamiya semi, yes you heard me semi gloss black

And drum roll dddddrrrrrrrrrrrrr ddddrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
20150505_122322 by brundledonk, on Flickr

I can hear you all now " is that it ? I sat bored out of my tiny, waiting to see something magical and you sprung this cack on me ! "
I don't blame you really I dont, I was none too impressed either, but it's not finished yet and old Pete still has a few tricks up his sleeve

This looks like a bit of an Emperor''s new clothes moment, but I assure you that a coat of Tamiya Buff or deck tan (I forget which one) has been lightly sprayed over
20150505_122350 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And now I'm spraying Tamiya flat earth, light coats slowly building up,a dirty, dusty look (I know it's flat earth as I can see the paint pot just above my wrist
20150505_123531 by brundledonk, on Flickr
The trick to this is softly softly catchy monkey, i keep stopping and checking as I go as it's easy to over do it

If you are still with me and haven't lost consciousness yet, I'm spraying dusty shades (sounds like a pub singer) inside the wheel arches too
20150505_123543 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I'm still spraying dem dusty shades, oh man I love dem dusty shades
20150505_124423 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I can't tell if this is finished or if I'm still spraying dem dusty shades ! But you get the idea of what's going on
20150505_124430 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I'm almost certain but not completely that this is finished now

Yeah it's done (I think)
20150505_125412 by brundledonk, on Flickr
Still a few bit to add yet though (hehehehehe I bet you are peeing yourselves with the excitement)
20150505_125421 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I'm looking at this pic and wondering what the hell I was thinking lol ! It's artistic if nothing else, at least it's on the bottom where no one will see it

same story on this bit
20150505_132240 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And this one
I'm skipping the german grey and Nato black on these bits as I want the semi gloss black to be the main colour
20150505_132231 by brundledonk, on Flickr
Fitted but still waiting for dem dusty shades
20150505_133937 by brundledonk, on Flickr
Done and dusted
20150505_150214 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And the fuel tank too

Alclad for the back box.
20150505_152252 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And a few shades on the rest of it
20150505_152326 by brundledonk, on Flickr
A bit of pigment and some sepia wash
20150505_153717 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I'm not going to make it dusty as it seems a shame to cover the Alclad, we'll just pretend that wallace has been to Kwik-fit to get the van through the MOT

This bit still needs to go on, but I'm stumped with how to weather it so will see if I come up with something tomorrow
20150505_160019 by brundledonk, on Flickr
When I built the Shaun the sheep Landrover I made some rubber mats, I thought that it would work in this so I cut some styrene sheet
20150505_171935 by brundledonk, on Flickr
A quick scribe and a coat of black, I will dirty them up before they get glued in
20150505_174232 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And I have mixed a colour for the body (what a mare that was lol), I didn't have any dark blue so had to use clear blue so the paint is very translucent
20150505_203108 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I tested it over a white primer and it was far too light, it doesn't look too bad over grey though
This bit is over a white primer, I will need to re-prime it and try again

Slowly getting there, tomorrow I'm hoping to get the interior and bodywork painted, but I've got chores in the morning (damn you real life) but if I pull my finger out I should get it done.

Cheers

Pete
