To imitate the mud of the lower hull first I applied a wash with a sand ochre colour (Kursk Earth). Next I wet the surface with Pigment fixer and applied European Earth pigment over it quite randomly:


When the mud coat was dry I applied some spots of Engine Oil mix to get some wet mud zones. The glossy finish of the Engine Oil mixed with the dry pigment makes a nice wet mud effect:


On the wheels I applied Pigment fixer and European Earth pigment right over the green base:


With the wheels glued in place I splashed a dark brown wash (Track Wash) spraying air with the airbrush. Then I retouched the spots with a brush:


The tracks were painted with a Red hull base coat. Then I made a mud mix with plaster, Pigment fixer, Kursk Earth and European Earth pigment. With this mix you get a nice texture. Then I splashed Track Wash the same way as I did in the wheels:


There is still some weathering to be done. But not much.

Do you remember the Ferrari Mad Max? I really want to make another vehicle like that. No realism standars, just some Basil Poleodouris OST in the speakers, a bottle of Scotch and lot of fun in front of you, if you know what I mean.
Is there Mad Max 4 going on?
