How extreme are you aiming for? Some folks are happy with a simple wash and dusting of pigments, others dive right in and go for really complex painting with scratches and chipped paint with bent fenders. I built a Panther G a while back too, my favourite tank! Just a cool looking tank. I went for a fairly new look with some pinwashing and dry brushing, and I tried to make the bottom side look like it had been ripping through a farmers field or something similar.





And here is a KV-IB that I just wanted to look dusty. I did an oil wash and then used pigment powders for dust.


Is there any particular method or look you need help with?

Mix some paint with plaster and some vegetation. It should look just fine for what you are looking for.

That looks great! The bottom side looks really good, what did you end up using on it?

My airbrush skill are improving they aren't very good on this model.
Using a brush now for lots is a good thing because even when u get an airbrush u still need a brush sometimes and when u do get aairbrush u Will be good with a brush as well ;D
