I like that mud. Looking forward to seeing the trailer added, and the vehicle on it too.

Yeah the way I do the mud is very easy you dust the part first then put some pigment fixer on wet put your light mud pigment on by tapping the brush then do the same with the darker mud pigment then your good to go.

Looks great. I reckon you could scratch the top out of that trailer depending on the types of vehicles being transported. Was this the one that was going to end up with a StuG on it?

Actually the best way to start is to find a car heavy machinery transport trailer or truck and take photos. Google should supply photos if you can’t get out so that you can decide what look you want. With tanks it will be heavy, metal tracks and weight being the major factor. But you also have general wear and tear so plenty of bare metal that’s bluing and rusting. So it all becomes bare metal, blued metal (German grey is good for this), and rusting metal, dull not bright. The trick is less than more and graphite powder is really helpful in giving the metallic feel, but not turning everything “bling”. Start with photos.

Really like it. If it is a tank it will add scratches and scrapes in between the patches too. What you’ve done looks excellent. Let each scratch and chip tell a story.

The dirt on the back of the trailer is to show dirt having fallen of a tank or other vehicles.
