View Full Version : New Rod WIP

10-15-2011, 11:51 PM
Here is my latest project. I love the style of the ratrod, but thought it would be nice to see one painted up nice with some nice wheels,
so thats what I'm doing, a LOT of brushing since theres not much of the original I can use....enough chatter this is where I'm at so far:)

The engines I used, none of them fit properly so I made my own out of the three

I like the wagon wheels.

Don't forget about the reflection for the exhaust setup. Also, what's that odd reflection on the window?

Thanx suz, at the start of a full brush I find it a bit overwhelming, so I add a few highlites here and there to help me move forward, I'll change that window reflection eventually like I did with the big white highlite along the side. (hope that makes sense)

Anyway heres where I'm at now,...
Chopped roof,more detail on cowl, white walled the wheels, added some interior and some other details

no wip watchers?? oh well....

...added some more detail and reflections(got rid of the funny looking one off the windows), grill, radiator supports, door handle, and brushed over some of the engine
Here's where its at now, I think its pretty much done, I'm planning on keeping it on a plain studio background as I dont want to add ugly reflections all over it.

I'm intently watching. It's looks amazing as always.
Not feeling the bucket seats. And something seems weird with how the tires fit at the front.

Thanx Kenny, yeah I hear ya bout them seats. I might have to brush some alloy buckets or something. As for the front wheels, I'm not sure, maybe its the lights that are a bit off, the original didnt have lights so I'm guessing with their placement.
