also you might want to print it off and put it near to where you do your painting on it etc as well (I always have at least one picture to go off whenever I make or paint a custom of something and it usually helps a lot ) and for the weathered effects I think all you would need to do is paint a few black smudges here and there (preferably with matt black humbrol water paint) then before the paint dries I would recommend using some paper tissue's to dab the paint and spread it to the area's that you want to look a bit darker and weathered on your hand of omega...I would have some pictures of the real one printed off to go off first before doing this though ...it will probably turn out more accurate if you try and copy from some pictures of the real one.
hope this helps omega1963
I have as many pictures as i could find on my iPad, i usually have that next to me when doing these things.
Ill need to find some humbrol water paint, i dont think I've come across those before.
Thanks for the advice
Have you considered some of the "Weathering Kits" that are available in the "Model Railway" section on Ebay. they look great although I have never used them myself.
Going to get back to this. Finally. Had to fix a broken hinge, planning a painting day tomrorrow and hoping to get most the weathering done on this. Not going for anything fancy or as dirty as the tv version. I dont this i could achieve a look like that. Just going for a bit of weathering to break up the solid colour it currently is. Using mostly browns and black.
