Thanks spud.

Yeah it stems from not having enough experience with weathering stuff. I have yet to work out what gives me certain effects. Without knowing this I did not know what to weather with before putting tracks on if you know what I mean. I used a mixture of AK fresh/dark mud, European earth pigment, light dust and a dark earth mix of humbrol 85/132 enamels with plaster powder and crushed stone. I have decided to buy AK's FAQ 2 in the coming months as I think it will really help me there. But damn it is expensive.

I tried a little bit of the colour modulation with the hatches and I have a few ideas on what could be improved there as well.

Getting there slowly. But still getting there thanks.

I have the FAQ 2 if you are interested in buying it its in perfect condition,

But i will say the best thing you can buy is the AK dvds washes fading and oils and winter techniques. you will learn a lot faster and the 2 of them is far cheaper than the book. :)
