How about some alien skin crystals black and sliver!
I wouldn't have a clue how or what they look like paul?
Ummm.....is this what you mean @musicmacd ?
That was what I first thought you meant..... but the alien skin part threw me for a loop
Btw If you're interested in that dont let the price scare you. You can mix a little over a gallon of your own for $6 and a trip to walmart.
(not the waterbase specific formula I was working on but exactly like mutant DNA crystals)
That's some cool looking stuff lll have to see if I can find some around here or on line
What do you need to make it from walmart
Supertech Diesel exhaust fluid
Cheap ammonia free glass cleaner.
30ml glass cleaner.
That puts you almost dead on
The DEF will work by itself but is hard to keep sheeted out and is made with nothing but 65% water 35% urea
The IPA and glass cleaner are just wetting agents, you can trade off their amounts to adjust drying times but keep their total under 130ml for a 500ml mix.
more IPA is faster=smaller crystals
More glass cleaner is slower=bigger crystals.
Also Ive found if the base coat is glossy scuffing is basically necessary to keep it from beading up too quick,like if you mask over clear with it , just like w the real thing.
To get it completely dead on you have to let the DEF sit out in an open container a few days and evap some water off before you mix it all up, or you can add a little 46-0-0 fertilizer (urea) which runs about $1 a pound if you find it.
But as I stated it your only about %10 under the levels in the product
And if you dont even want to go through the trouble then this knocks it down to about $50
Thanks for the recipe
You're welcome man.

Update , Found a pin-up thats rated G.so I can post what I have done so far. Here's the updated picture of the tank still a lot to do but I'm getting there! Enjoy Star Gazer!
Awesome! This is going to be really cool.
You could Airbrush a bad repair job effect and riveted patches.
