Amazing! you must have a steady hand and the patience of a saint. Do you display these? I love the rally cars, is the muddy look something you've added or part of the design? I like it it adds to overall look.

the 'mud' is pigments.....basically 'artificial mud'....you can buy it in a bewildering range of colours and can do all sorts of things with it......the rally cars i did with a pigment and water slurry mix......use a stiff brush to flick it on in the direction of travel.....use masking tape on the windshield to get the shape of the wipers

another way of using it is to mix it with pva glue, add fine sand for texture and you get lumpy mud.....did this method on this German WW2 Marder tank destroyer that i finished a few days ago

its a technique i find tricky to get right but practice makes perfect and all that

all depends on what it is and what effort im putting into it...........that Marder took probably 12 man hours but it was spread over 2 weeks or so
