I think it's pretty good as it is Wink Short of kicking it on the street, I think that you've achieved the right look.

It's by training your eyes and seeing the wear and tear on objects/machines, etc that you'll gain more experience into the "used look". As I said before, create a story behind the object: solid plastic or metal, or a mix of plastic/metal components. What's the use and abuse of that piece, the environement, etc...
As soon as you've answered those questions, the layering can begin and it'll give you a better image of the final product Wink

I agree. I work in a manufacturing facility making training videos, so I get to see first hand how edges get worn from use, paint cracks due to stress or heat, etc. The built up "gunk" on my helmet is based on the similar look of some machines in my building that have been chugging along for nearly two decades. Someone may dust them off from time to time, but the grime builds up in hard to reach spots and it isn't worth the time involved to clean it all off.
