One of the cooler aspects of Dust Tactics is the walkers. You get two walkers in the Dust Tactics:Core Revised Set and this is the Allied version.
The Blackhawk is one of the 'Light' class walkers, it is a fast but lightly armoured walker armed with Dual Heavy PIATs that pack a punch even against the heaviest of vehicles.
I used the 'hairspray' technique on this model. First time I have ever used it. It you are not familiar with it, the process is simple. You treat the model with the basic colour and shading variation you want on the finished model and then give the entire model a coat of hairspray. You then airbrush your top colour, in this instance, white (Dust Tactics is, and when it is dry you use a rough brush or toothpick and some warm water to gently remove some of the upper coat, thus simulating a worn and weathered look. I touched up a few 'edges' of some of the weathering with the original white to give a chipped paint feel and then weathered the model as normal.
I was very pleased with how this turned out, it has certainly ended up much more on the lighter end of the scale, so far closer to the look I was after.
