    Thank you again!

    If anyone doesn't mind sharing weathering tips for tires, I am interested in knowing what mediums you use and how you go about applying it. I wouldn't mind doing a light dusting on these wheels. I tried to do that with the Fujimi 109 I posted, but failed. I came across a thread where someone used MIG powders and Tamiya lacquer thinner to fix it to their tires. On the Fujimi, I mixed MIG Gulf War Sand w/Tamiya lacquer thinner and applied it like a wash. I think I may have made it too thick...it just didn't look right. I attempted to thin the pigment on the tires by brushing Tamiya thinner on the wheel, but the thinner ate through the black paint on the tires. I had to use a darker pigment (either MIG or pastel stick) to make it look more like mud to cover the spots where the thinner ate through the paint. If anyone can explain or provide a link to a tutorial that would show me the technique to portray dust, I'd be appreciate it.

    Beautiful model.

    Dusty tires? All I do is spray them with very thin dust coloured paint at a long distance. Start far out and move in to achieve the desired effect.

    Wow, now that looks great! That's exactly what I'm after. Thanks...I am going to practice that on some spare wheels before I try it on this! :)

    Wow, that is superb. The mottling effect you have achieved looks absolutely spot-on. Could I ask, what did you use to make the cones on the antenna wires? They look very effective.

    Thanks guys!

    Credit for the cones go to Crimea_River. Cones were made from Evergreen 010” thick sheet styrene.

    Tip of an ice pick is heated over a flame. The tip is then pressed into styrene sheet. The ice pick melts the plastic, so it conforms to the shape of the ice pick tip. Fresh Xacto blade is used to slice the cones off the sheet.
