does anyone know how to get that weathered/dirty effect on vehicles?
I have heard of people mixing small amounts of fine rock flock into brown paint , and dipping an old tooth brush into it.. Then using your finger, flick it accross the bristles with the bristels angled towards the model...
This results in the paint with "Clumps of mud" spattering accross the sides of the tank.
Airbrushing can get a good dusting result..
That makes me wonder what spray painting over a stretched pair of nylons would do?
anyway, those are a couple methods... then there is also weathering powders that I have no idea how to use...
I have yet to attempt the technique for adding mud I have recently tried weathering powders and, after a little practice, can lend a nice 'weathered' feel to the model. Please pardon the pun. Though my experience is still limited with them I've found the Tamiya weathering powders to work well.
Here is a link that I found useful for adding re-entry scorching to my Drop pod.

Oil based paints work well, also weathering powder by MIG, or ForgeWorld.
Apply the weathering powder and slowly introduce thinner, it takes a while but after several coats it builds up.
