Many years ago an article appeared in Bob Brown's "Narrow Gauge & Short Line
Gazette" that caught our eye... It extolled the virtues of "Scratch Brush
The idea intrigued us so we just had to give it a try... But with the super-slow drying paints of the day, good results were slow in coming...
They took DAYS instead of minutes to achieve, taxing our collective attention spans to the limit... One try was enough...
But then came along our "STAR BRAND PAINTS" and all that changed! (In more ways than one, mind you...) How?
Well sir, y'see, instead of drying from the outside in, which is what "enamels" do, our new paints were a 'specially formulated Lacquer that dried from the outside IN ! At last we had a model paint that didn't smell for WEEKS ! Or even DAYS ! This stuff dried to the touch in minutes ! And to the smell in an hour or so at most...
So one thing lead to another and Jimmy decided to give the weathering brush technique another shot... What used to take DAYS could now be accomplished in an hour... Or less !
So what you're looking at here is "sort of" a how-to on using the scratch brush
on a "wood" car roof... ( Note that "wood" is in quotes, because this is
actually a highly detailed molded plastic model that you're seeing here
