  Lovely stuff Steve - Glad you got the electrics sorted , sounds great now . The magnets for the caps I found on Fleabay , there are lots of types and sizes to choose from , only a couple of bucks with free postage too  ;D Can't wait to see her all painted up  :P have you decided on your scheme yet ?

I have been using the hairspray method for a while now (for tools, exhausts, fenders etc) and it is a good technique for getting realistic wear and tear. Just be careful you don't go overboard with the weathering as it can look a bit over the top - less is more as they say. Use good quality hairspray that says 'fine mist'. Also, Mike Rinaldi suggests using Tamiya paint thinned with water over the hairspray as it is easier to wear away.  Might be the same with Vellejo paints.  If you use normal thinner the paint can dry too hard and is difficult to wear away and can come off in large chunks. Lastly, sometimes I put a quick coat of dull coat before the hairspray for added protection when using the technique. Another technique by Mike Rinaldi is the lacquer thinner method in his Tank Art books - gives a great effect for those areas where paint is worn away by guys climbing over parts of the tank. Sort of like dry brushing but with thinner to gently wear away the paint to show the undercoat or underlying paint colour (great for Afrika Korps vehicles). Great vids by the way Steve.
