I over complicated things, and ended up going around in circles on an 18 wagon rake. The dusting you've given them with the airbrush has blended everything together very nicely. Great work. Yeah I found these hard work! Like yourself, I though they only looked convincing when they are really filthy with layer upon layer of grime and cement. The only way to get that effect was to apply layer upon layer of weathering! I ended using every technique I could think of.... I found the streaking effects particularly hard to get right. Removing the paint with a fibre pencil was way too aggressive. I ended up letting the Tamiya paint dry for several days before scrubbing at it with a stiff brush moistened with isopropyl. The effect is quite convincing. The chipping cement was done using Maskol before the paint was airbrushed on. The cement dust is REAL cement. It's as fine as any weathering powder and looks great when sealed with varnish. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
