I just put together some prepainted Japanese tank kits. I would like to customize them and rough them up a bit so they don't look so new. So I am looking for the following;

Product suggestions

How to videos

I am also looking for 1/72 decals for japanese tanks. The tanks came with camo but no markings at all.

TIA Kevin

Chalk pastels are pretty easy to use for adding dust and smoke stains. Seal these with Dullcote or similar to prevent rubbing off when handled.

Agree with the chalk pastels

For Japanese decals (I assume WWII) try the Panzer Garage

For videos just do a search for "Night Shift 1/72". IMHO the best armor weathering videos out there.
