I like to no what you all use to make stuff look old. Been looking at some aging stuff but not shore if it would just wash off if my scaler got water on it. Im building a scx10 dingo body into a Camel Trophy. I painted the body on the outside and I think it would look better if it was aged..

Thanks Allen

Ok would this stuff just wash off if the truck is run though a creek?

I use a flat clear over top and it works fine for me

Not if you shoot it with matte clear afterwards. Also look at Sophisticated Finishes Rust.

For dirt, grime & mud, I use Tamiya flat acrylics. thin them down and use them like a wash & keep a rag to wipe away what you don't want. toothbrush to splatter mud (let it dry before you use it to brush your teeth though). Then hit it with the flat clear. you don't have to in order to make it not wash off but it's a good way to seal all your weathering.

I tried the Rust All for the first time and had good results. Thanks for the recommend Kevin.

Nice work. A method I used years ago when model railroading was to dry brush various powdered earth tones and rust colours. Then finish with Testors Dull coat. Not sure how well it would stand to moisture though.
