As some may know, I like to modify my models to make them look more like the real thing after seeing lots of action---often adding chipping, stains, oil smears, etc. ---as well as doing total repaints in many cases. Here is my HM Nowotny FW-190A after getting such treatment:

I don't mind the factory fresh (or field applied fresh) look on this model, a lot of HM all white models have come off as rather heavy and toy like but your enhancements are on point, NOW it looks like something that served on the Eastern Front.

Thanks, guys. I do this kind of thing on all of my winter white diecast models. It makes a huge difference.
