"The Red Ball Express" was a complex logistics system based on convoys of trucks created by the Allies to supply the troops advancing rapidly through Europe after D-Day.

It began operating on August 25, 1944, it reached 5,958 vehicles and transported about 12,500 tons of supplies per day.

The experiment

I wanted to make a rain effect on a vehicle and on the mud, with water drippings and water droplets impacting the surfaces.
The problem is that when I do it "realistic" for the size, at simple eyes, without zoom, the effect is not noticeable by the size of the scale, and if I exaggerate the effect, it is very glossy with the zoom.
For the experiment use "liquid crystal" a very transparent and bright resin that heals with sunlight, which then highlights with bright varnish.
I'm not happy with the result, but it is to experience techniques and effects, sometimes you achieve it in the first and others you have to do it several times and go correcting.
