Now that I'm looking at it as "finished" I can't help but think SOMETHING is missing.  ....  ...

Thats the problem mike, knowing when to stop, its like painting a picture that you are very happy with and looks great, then you say " i will just add a bit here and there " next thing is it does not look right. So if your happy with it leave it alone [smile]
Its looking good as it is, Build another armour and compare the two

The weathering looks great ! Thank you for explaining the process you used, very helpful. How about making a little bit of terrain to display it on ? I think it would look great

Graham, you're right. I did two things before having the finished photos taken; I rubbed graphite over the tow cables and added the antenna. As soon as my Photographer gets around to editing the shots she took yesterday I'll be posting them in the reveal section.

Pete, you've read my mind. I have a small shelf in my room where I have the model displayed. Last night I thought, "That would really look good as a road." So I've cut a piece of cardboard and started work on making it into a dirt road for the two tanks to drive on.

No Problem Ted. i use that same trick for rust. I use liquid model cement on what I want to have a rusty texture and dip the part in Baking soda or sprinkle it on, depending on the application. For thicker solid lumps of mud or rust just use super glue and sprinkle away. Although you don't have the flexibility with super glue. Once its set its there to stay so I don't use that as much. Simple solution of white glue and water is far more flexible for mud applications. 

The thing I like most about this technique is that the Baking Soda will still absorb any washes you apply even after it's dry, or you can paint it. Either way it works. Also it makes a fairly convincing snow, which is where I learned the trick in the first place years ago. You can make it look like dry powder or slush.

THAT is some great info all in all and especially the point about baking soda!
