Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but I've a question that I hope someone may be able to answer.
I bought the Trasavia Airtruk and have yet to print and assemble it. Thr problem is, I like the graphics and attention to detail, but I'd like a different paint job! Specifically, the rusty brown finish it appeared in in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome! Does aybody have any ideas on how to do this?
It dopesn't have to be exact, just gnarly and dingy.

Look for my "how to recolor" article on the FG website. Go down the page to the tab that says "Designing tips for beginners". the tutorial shows how to create all kinds of weathered effects, as well as how to change colors, markings, etc. The article was written using Photoshop Elements, but the basic operations can be done with most other similar programs, including GIMP--which is freeware and nearly as powerful as Photoshop.

Once you've recolored your model--send a copy off to FG, so we can all share it.
