Looking at loads of magach pix I tried my habd at doing the dust weathering using a mix of different chalk pastles and the "wear surface" I used a graphite pencle to look like bare steel.

The tracks I had to tie together with cotton thread as onlt one set of the pins reached the holes but kept comming off, lucky the sideskirts will hide this

My camera makes it lighter in direct sunlght, imagine it a little more green indoors.

Well done! And you've noted something that actually happens with the real thing: the color appears to change with ambient lighting.

Thanx, I may have gone a tad heavy on the weathering/dust but I had to try break the monotone look of the paint. 

As for black basing (I used it here for the first time) I worked out very well and give good shadow effect. However for planes where there are not as many deep creveses to get into I think I would most likely stick to normal pre shading and marbling to get depth.

 

Now I want to try another piece of armour but my local shop does not have what I want, or the ones I like is way out of my budger range :-( 

I Will have to save up a little it seems LOL
