A little bit of fun in a slightly larger scale. I bought the Lifecolor "Dust" set - three different pigments for dust from Eastern, Northern and Southern Europe, each pigment also having a matching acrylic paint. So you can paint on dust patches to your models then brush on the pigment, or you can mix pigment and colour then spread the paste on your model for a thicker effect - that's probably more appropriate for the similar "Mud" set. Anyway I tried this out on a couple of 15mm tank, and it looks pretty good. The photos don't quite do it justice - the dust stands out more in the pictures than in real life, and it is whiter, too.
