Response to something doesn't look quite right

Hi Gray,
I understand what you say about the turret looking cleaner than the hull - I think if I had applied dust to the turret roof it might have looked a little more unified with the lower areas (perhaps too unified), but I wanted to suggest the look of use on the turret roof, perhaps where the commander had used the panel in front of him as a map table etc, and so it had remained relatively free from loose dust, and quite buffed up from that kind of usage, also from being stood upon and polished by boot soles - just my thought process, right or wrong! I have seen wartime shots of tanks where the the turret does look quite a lot cleaner and shinier than the rest of the tank, and also shots where the whole vehicle is plastered with the same density of dust, so I guess it's up to individual preferences as to how one finishes their model.
Cheers,
Marcus
