So this model started off with an old Hot Wheels New Beetle that I “found” in a box in the garage…

I wanted to try out some painting techniques, weathering powders and transfers, before I started painting not only my other Gaslands cars, but also my Forge World Ork models.

Having added some transfers and done some weathering I started thinking about enhancing the model, so decided to paint the windscreen.

This went through a range of techniques, but I’m not too happy about the end result. I wanted a dark blue look to the windscreen with lighter highlights. I also used some contrast and inks to make it look like glass. I don’ think it worked,  but that’s the point of this model it’s a testbed for techniques.
