You need a Ghoul with a tree growing out if his head :) Great job on the vehicles and pack animals.

Why not eat the mules you say? You going to carry all the equipment yourself? says I :D

Time to switch away from the Ghouls to the Vault Dwellers. I said I'd do a step by step on weathering and I thought I'd use one of my Vault Dweller  vehicles to do it so let me introduce the Rad Pig, a post nuclear recce and survey vehicle.

The Rad Pig is actually a resin model from the Baggage Train, built backwards i.e. the top and bottom are separate and I turned the top round to give it a bigger front end. Wheels are from the wonderful Zinge Industries

Stage one - unpainted






Stage two - Brown undercoat



Stage three - Other browns overlaid




Stage four - hairspray and salt added. I find it is important to use both large bits and small grains for the best effect







Stage five - overspray with the top colour





Stage six - warm water and tooth brush 'brush-off'








Tidying up and details next....

It's not big, or clever, but let's do it anyway

Thanks! Pictures make that look way easy!

Rattle can? Rock salt... Hair spray.. I can do that! :D

The close up of the turret looked fab with the little chips.

Cheers

I've heard of this technique so many times but never tried it. You have made it look not only effective but simple enough to try.
       
 Thanks for the step by step, looking forward to the finished item.

Rad Pig...finished. Took longer than I thought because I kept messing around with other stuff instead of doing the job in-hand (see MORE junk on the Scrapyard thread).

Only additions were a brown wash, dirt wash on the tyres, a few details painted (windows, ammo boxes) and a few decals. Apologies for the slightly poor light. The one crap day this week and I choose to take photos.

Hope you like it.

A few quick pics of the Vault 7 Long Range Ops Team that I am working on. If I post it, I force myself to keep the pace up and get it done. More detailed explanation when it's complete :D

That's quite a sight! I have one of those Warmill Pods myself, painted yellow ;)
