I did not want a repeat of this years CANCON CoC jungle event , scrambling to finish my troops at the last moment so I started putting together my BEF force early so I can concentrate on play testing early war scenarios for the event and build some more terrain.
Here are a couple of my finished vehicles. cheers John

Wow impressive weathering John, they look like they were the last survivors at Dunkirk.

Judging by the amount of rust, I'd say they swam back.

Great models lovely finishing technique they look fantastic.

But IMO I wonder if we get carried away with ‘weathering’ Vehicles; rust, paint scratches, dirt etc. The campaign in France 1940 was short and initially carried out in good weather, here is a picture of a captured A10 in May 1940 (worldwarphotos.info site)...

Everyone to their own taste but I would weather my vehicles more sparingly for France 1940.

Cheers!

Thanks for your comments all, yes I was aware not to add too much rust and wear on the vehicles as Captain Darling pointed out but I completed painting these vehicles in record time as I am keen to finish my BEF troops.
When the models are viewed on the gaming table the rust and wear marks are not as noticeable, I think the camera picks up the red more and makes it more noticeable.
cheers John
here is a image of one of the tanks on the gaming table, the rust is not as noticable :)
