I finished this one about 6 months ago, but had a sunny day (???) and decided to clean it up, shoot it and post it.

It's the Revell 1:25th California wheels kit.

I built it to depict a hard ride home to Canada from speed week in Daytona.

First attempt at weathering the chassis;

Duplicolor grey primer, washed with Tamiya hull red XF-9, washed with Tamiya flat black XF-1,

drybrushed with Tamiya gun metal X-10 and finally drybrushed with Tamiya buff XF-57.

Reasonably grimey I think.
