While I had the Rust Wash out for doing the pilots, I decided to wash some of my new vehicles in it.
I have this set of army vehicles which are just ok-ish for late 40s with a Mk1 Land Rover, an Austin Tilly, and. Tractor tug.
They are in desert Livery so I am pretending they’ve just got back from somewhere or are about to go somewhere exotic.
One of my pet hates of model railways is a nicely weathered loco with a glossy car sitting on a road nearby. Unless they’ve just come out of the showroom, cars just aren’t that glossy. Muck gets everywhere and they’re satin at best.
These three examples then had a total wash of Rust as shown in the picture below of the Land Rover and then were wiped down leaving heavier deposits in the crevices such as between mudguard and bonnet.
