No modeling this week….

But I have done some Pacific Electric replication. I came across a picture of a destination sign off of a Blimp. I knew that I had to have one, but couldn’t get one due to the rarity of the real one, I decided to make one. 

I painted a sheet of of steel with Valspar Island Orange, and then applied a vinyl mask that a friend of mine made. I then shot the letters with Krylon gloss black before peeling the mask off…

I now need to scratch up the paint more before I chemically rust the sign with a mixture of vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and salt.

Not quite the same font, but it is close.
