putty...but if the kit is to even look good, you may have to go for the
Battle-worn look...the nice and shiny look will all the more point out its
lack of detail. hmmm....for soot marks, I generally use graphite dust, a
brush and some fixer. other thanthat, it's a good airbrush and some flat
black. then it might be good to have a first layer of either silver or
gunmetal, then the colors....then you sand the color until the first layer
comes out...or you drybrush the edges.....there are many ways...
