Finished RX-78-2 weathered 1/48

Finished off this 1/48th RX-78-2 finally. Weathering got a bit heavy-handed, but fun trying new techniques. Tamiya Acrylics with AK weathering products; streaking grime, engine grime, pigments, etc.

I know nothing about mecha but that's some really nice work! Love the weathering.

Hey Tacocat, I saw this thing on gundamforums and was just like damn. I meant to ask you about your weathering - what's your technique? I haven't really attempted a seriously grimy, lived-in mobile suit yet but would love to do it right!
