It looks alot better then before ner vod! Did you just sand back the paint layers for that affect? For my plates I used a multitude of implements. From toothpaste, to sanding, to wire brush then blackwash and some black spray paint to get all my effects.
You can almost see every example on this little bit of cod plate  ;D


I love the wear affects yours has though.. Making me think of a repaint. Especially those edges. So worn out.. So cool  8)

Hi Jaing Vau, Ya all i did this time is sand back the paint layers. I will be using toothpaste on a few of the other parts and i may do a wash over the entire kit to make it a little more on the dirty side.

Awesome! ;D I never sanded back all my paint layers because I felt I'd go all the way through  :laugh:

This way you've done now flows a lot better and looks great. Ever improving man!

Thanks. The only thing i will change when i do my actual plates is to make the silver coat of pain a little thicker that way i won't be afraid to sand it a little. I think i'll do 1 coat of primer, 2 coats of silver, 1 coat of the beaten copper and 1 coat of red. It should be safe to sand. I'll also use the toothpaste method in a few spots where the more damaged areas are.

I did a similar thing. Four coats of silver for the main silver parts. Or two silver two red for the red parts then sand some back. Then a black brown wash to add depth.

Liquid masking fluid works really well instead of toothpaste. . Looks great though it's going to be epic

Hi Gang, here is the weathering I have done so far. I still need to give it a brown wash. It needs to have a little more dirt to it. How is acrylic paint to work with for giving it a wash ? I still have room for improvement with my technique but over all I like the look.

Update time, here is the dirty look for the plates. The left has brown acrylic on it. I think i'll do this to the entire kit. What do you think ?

Test fit before the Velcro gets attached to the vest.

Update time. So the plates have been attached to my flak vest. I need to get a new belt to hold the leather pouches a little higher because as it is I find them to low but there are no belt hoops to help hold the belt up and the pouches are heavy enough to pull the belt down.  Input is always welcome.

Much better than V1!! Loving it! For the pouches you could always sew in velcro around where the belt would be to act almost as loops to hold it all up. Not too sure how well this would work but its the first thing that came to mind haha.
