Compliments are in order!

What method did you use for the worn white wash?

Suitably scruffy and I really like how you replaced the air intake mesh screens as the kit parts are pretty crude.

Hello and thanks;
After coating the vehicle with green and weathering I sprayed it with AK: s heavy chipping fluid then with white (Tamiya). Rubbing with water and a short haired brush created a floating white fluid which was partly sucked up with a sponge. Then I used a flat stiff brush and stroked downwards to create the fine white spots.
