Be interested to see the corrugated roof
It's that rusty thing in the foreground of the last picture! It's a sheet of corrugated sheet from Bole Lasercraft, heated in boiling water and bent to shape, or at least near enough to shape to allow me to glue it on... Pictures of the finished van by the end of the week, I hope!
So obvious when you point it out. I like the rusting effect. Iron filings and vinegar?

Thanks Rik!

It's iron filings (the finest I could find) and copper suplate solution, which seems to produce a more orangey rust than vinegar. I tried to replicate the way that the rust seems to spread along the "troughs" in corrugated iron first.
