You definitely went the extra mile with this in the start.
I have a Humvee project up now, but when I saw how much I had to remove to get to the "guts" of it, I skipped/cheated my way around that part.

If you need some inspiration for weathering then my post might help ( ? ) - Or you might want to go in a completely different direction! - I like my vehicles dirty, scraped up and looking pretty abused. And there are also a lot more techniques on how to weather a vehicle then the short explanations I have in my article.

I'm looking forward to how this assault pick-up will turn out in the end. It definitely served as inspiration for me when I started working with my stuff!

So the pickup definitly has to have some sort of brush bar to protect the radiator when bashing through road blocks. I tried several brush bars that I have off different hummers and trucks but they all came off looking, way TOO cool. This is supposed to be a low budget Cobra conversion so I couldn't use them. Instead I took the undercarriage off a Majesto hummer, cut it a little and formed it into a grill. I mangled it up like it like it has seen damage and its un symetric design, screams just welded together in minutes. Once painted it will look sweet.

Default damage control

So before I start painting, I wanted some battle damage. I took a small drill bit and used my dremel to make some bullet holes and mess up the fenders. I also used my dremel to hollow out one of the spot lights on top of the cab for that "shot out" look.

When I go to weather and paint I use 4 steps

Black
Silver
Rust
Mud

So I started with black and colored in all the damage and added some general dirty streaks

time to add some mud.

Now this my personl favorite trick. I have a little bottle of brown paint I never shake and mix. I dip my bottle deep in it and put a glob of the paint on the truck, then I use a piece of paper to smear it in like mud




I guess the type of paper doesn't matter, But don't use news paper bc it absorbs and rips easily. I usually use reciepts because there finish doesn't absorb and I have tons of them, lol

Amazing job man! Someday, something like this MIGHT just have to be attempted by me. I love the battle damage. That's battle damage done right, right there! Kudos!

(Vegas definitely can be a bitch...3 times out, 3 times down $500...but, man was it fun losing it, haha )
