Weather your kit

Applying a weathering look on your kit can be done in many ways. For starters, there are complete cosmetic materials available such as...weathering kit by Tamiya. Just bring it on, on the spot and fine brush it anyway you please.
Dry brushing is another way. Just use a brush and choose the desired colour paint. Whipe the brush dry on a clean cloth and apply it on the kit. Do this gently.

Want something more challenging and realistic dirt? Try washing. For my kits I used enamel colors brown and black (XF-1 and XF-10) and enamel thinner. The mixing ratio is respectively 1:1:10
Remark: enamel thinner is an agressive chemical which can warp you plastic part if you don't remove the wash-mix quickly after application with a clean cloth or cotton swab. So, determine what you want to wash, apply it, remove it and do it swift...
