Thanks for the vote of confidence Peter. I have attempted this technique on plastic models with limited success but have seen the process done numerous times by people I was in a model building club with and others at shows. I plan to try it again on wood and we will see how it comes out. I think I can do it and if it comes out okay, I'll do a tutorial on it. I definitely think the Rat Rods need some rust on them. More to come later......

Vallejo does have ´rust-paint´ in it´s repertoire. It can be airbrushed.

This Rat Rod finish is kind of a mess but I will continue to experiment. This is dark red crafts paint with black crafts paint for the body. The grayish color is white crafts paint mixed with a little black. The black color is black crafts paint with stiple brushed dark gray made by mixing a little white with the black. A semi-gloss clear finishes it off.

Hey John, I like that paint job. It gives the car a "rattler" look. It is still a bit too clean. How about taking a small Dremel grinder to the body panels to simulate dents and scrapes and maybe paint some rust on the exhaust pipes.Can't wait to see the other rat rods you come up with.

Toy builder Bob-
Thanks for the feedback. Great Ideas for finishing. I will give that a try. I agree it is too clean. I am so used to trying to make it perfect. I love the real Rat Rods I see on line. It is a fun thing the hot Rodders are up to! Great Ideas for finishing. I will give that a try.

I know one of the ways they do fake “patina” on real cars is to paint the brown rust color first, then paint the color coat over it, and sand through it in certain spots to represent wear. Never tried it myself but if done right it looks pretty good.

A couple of years ago walking the aisles of Hobby Lobby at the row for plastic models I saw a kit to use on military vehicles to give them a battle worn look. 

 Wishing now I had read the box to see what the feature consisted of, maybe next time .

They still have that kit. I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and looked at it. It costs $21.95 and actually has iron in the paint and an activator that actually rusts the paint. I haven't tried it but by looking on you tube, it looks pretty cool. I am going to try to get the rust look with only acrylic paints. Take care all.[cool]
