Just finished a 1/16 Renault FT-17 from Takom. A pretty nice kit and I had fun putting it all together. I hope you like it and thanks for looking. Comments welcome.

Very impressive!

Can you explain how you painted/weathered the exhausts?

I wish I could show you, but here goes. I painted the exhaust with model master metalizer exhaust. Next I applied a wash/slurry mixing red brown pastel powder and mineral spirits. While it is still wet I apply some dry powder to the surface to get the raised rust. When it is dry seal with model master flat clear and dry brush as needed.

Thanks for the comment.
