Normally I don’t go in for “excessive” weathering with a mud effect. But in this case I thought I would make an exception. So, I mixed a 3:2 solution of AK Interactive’s “Summer Kursk Earth” wash (AK080) and “Earth Effects” wash (AK017) and added plaster of Paris until it was the consistency of cream. Balancing the vehicle on its various sides I splattered the mixture from the end of a brush with air from an airbrush onto the lower hull, wheels and tracks. For a very little splatter on the upper hull and turret I flicked the mixture from a small brush.
