Sunbeam Talbot 90 - Rather Rusty. Step 2 - Rust Spots.

For some time now I have been meaning to have a go with a microbrush. I'm sure they've been on sale for years, and been used by thousands of modellers for all sorts of useful things, but I've never had a go. Until now. By applying a very small amount of wash from the tip of the rigger brush, I was able to just about colour the tiny bristles of the microbrush. The tip was then poked carefully at areas of the car where I thought rust would form. I have no photograph of a rusty SunbeamTalbot 90 to work from, so have guessed where the rust might form by recalling all the work I had to do when 'fixing' my own cars all those years ago. You can see where my guesswork placed the rust in this photograph, and if anybody knows that it's in the wrong place(s) then please let me know.

I once had an old Ford Escort MK1 that had rust all along the bottom edge of the door panels, the rain used to get in if it was really wet when driving!

My dad owns a sunbeam 90 and I am well acquainted with the rust locations. Key places are bottom of the doors especially, the sills just in front of the wheelarches and under the headlights.

Excellent. Thanks very much. I'm going to have to start another process to add this to the model, even though it's actually finished. The photographs that I take are published on here some time after they're taken.
