    The weathering was done over a couple of evenings, I used Mig productions rust powder and Lifecolor Tensochrom, as well as oil paint.

    Very good techniques you have used there! Excellent work. Approx haw long does a 3ft model take from start to finish? You need patience I expect!?

    Well done.

    Another good way is to mix the real rust powder with water dissolved paint, then paint it, and paint as a second layer with normal paint and put after that in to the water, the rust will go trough the paint and will look very authentic

    Looks like a screenshot from a movie. Very realistic.
