underhaulin a Citroën HY -Solido 1/21

I finished my underhaulin project. It took quite some time to get it right, but I'm very pleased with the result.
I had some trouble along the way (color was to bright, screws that didn't fit because I moved the door and the bonnet) but overall it went pretty good. 

First I painted the model brown, later on I applied the grey colour. 
Next up was the weathering. I used a mix of black, red, orange and brown paint to make the rust colour. after applying this on the model I sprinkled pigment over the wet paint, this made the rust look pretty  real. at the end I used a sponge with green paint to create the green moss on the body.

this is the result, what do you think?


  1. very nice job!
    my congratulations to the chef!

  2. Excellent!!! What a great job, I like the imitation of the oxide.
    Details of flat tires, doors and windshield are very realistic.
