First thing I tried was using a "Technical Pen" to fill in the detail lines after it was painted. I don't think anyone has even heard of a Technical Pen in Canada. I went every where. Art stores, office stores, stationary stores...no one even heard of them. So, I tried a fine line marker. I think its the same you just can't refill them. Still not 100% I like it. I think if the ink flowed a little easier it would probably work a lot better.
The next thing I tried was these weathering stick by Tamiya. It simulates caked on mud. I didn't do a very good job, but I think I can work with it. They turned out a bit splotchy. the rest of the tanks aren't dirty enough. but the build up of mud looks good.
