    I had done the detail additions and the UP to SP change that same afternoon. Everything is so small, even with a magnifier, my head was starting to hurt. I didnt feel like washing my brushes, so I decided to use a toothpick for the dirt/rust and smoke. They took me about 10 minutes tops. I need to put in more time :(

    They look great for only 10 minutes though.:thumb: :thumb:

    why thank you. I will try weathering with my airbrush next time and see how that works.

    Reminds me of when I started out in the hobby:thumb: . My only tools were a straight edge razor and paint brushes made from the torn ends of paper book type matches. I'd trim them down for even finer work.
