Nice build.
Good luck with the contest.
Q: What did you use to weather your build. To give it a dusty desert look?

Cheers, I use nothing more than ground down chalk pastels applied dry with a brush. The ones I used on this build are supposed to be for coloring hair that I originally bought for the kids but some how they have ended up in my paint box  ::).  I used to use tamiya weathering set but these work just as well and you can get some amazing colour combinations, mixed with a bit of thinners they are also great to use as washes for streaking etc.

These are what I have.

Thanks for the info. I am working on a US Abrams tanks and this would be perfect for making it look like it's in the desert of Saudi Arabia with serious wear and tear.
