Plastic Warlord model, c&c welcome

Very nice!

I like the realistic, grimy look.

Very good weathering. I'd be proud to game with it!

A question I have is that suppose to be a heavy coating of rust or is that dirt on the front of the hull by the spare track?

It should be rust and dust/dirt

Okay thanks for the explanation but would that not be alittle to much rust for that location compared to the rest of the vehicle including the working tracks? I mean the vehicle does look great over all but to me it seems alittle overboard in that particular location.

Consider that the running tracks of a tank have very little rust on them, if at all, since the metal is constantly being scrubbed by the motion, while the spare track on the front would be just subject to corrosion from being still and in a place open to the elements

But how do you explain the part that isn't track? Should it be that rusty? I have been into plastic model kit modeling for many years and I have never seen any of the pro's use that much in that particular location. Also compare that with the mufflers on the back of the tank. I do see some rust but not as much as here and they would have been very rusty with it possibly going down the back of the tank.

I was aiming at reproducing the stains produced by rust being washed around by rain; the reasoning for it being a lot heavier on the front rather than on the back was that the rusted area is much larger and that dust would tend to accumulate more on the back rather than on the front.
But of course I might simply have overdone it

the rear of that turret is just begging for a teller mine to be stuck under it…
