Well today I went a bought some actual weathering oils and well, used them. The good thing about oils over acrylics is that you can re-activate them using enamel thinners. So this means you can keep working on a look until you are happy.
It’s late now so I have to stop but I think I’ve gotten it into a place I’m happy with. It certainly looks like a vehicle that is in use. Let’s see what I think tomorrow when I look at them with fresh eyes. It’s all a learning curve at the moment and it’s the most fun modelling I’ve had for ages.
