Sunbeam Talbot 90 - Rather Rusty. Step 1 - Wash.

Mick Bonwick


This topic will use an AMMO by Mig wash, Africa Korps Wash A.MIG-1001. Why? Because I have some and it has a red tinge to it, which I thought would work on a green vehicle.


The jar needed a good shaking and mixing before being applied because the pigment had separated from the carrier and there was a ridge of hardened paint around the inside of the lid. I obviously didn't heed my own advice the last time I used it, and didn't clean the top and rim before replacing the lid.


Application was done with a rigger brush, allowing capillary action to take the wash into all of the panel join lines and along body creases. It looks a mess at this stage, but will be left for 15 to 20 minutes to dry, before the next stage.

Long bristles to hold the fluid and fine tip to accurately place it. Some folks use a small, fine round-tipped brush, but I find the rigger holds far more paint and is just as accurate.
