Painting/weathering tracks

Greetings all, happy new year, and go easy it's my first post haha! !

Ive just got back into modelling after 20+ years off, I first did it as a kid and i'm as rubbish now as I was then.

Question is, how do you make the tracks look so real and like theyve been through mud??

I mainly build with Tamiya kits and paints, and really want to build a nice model. Working on a Konigs Tiger at present, one I always wanted to do a a youth.

Cheers in advance,

Matt

Well, one way is if you have some pigments you can mix them with water and make the mix real thick. Then place it on the tracks till ya get the look you want. I'm sure there are many ways to do it beside this but this works for me.
