Brekina Mercedes Benz L 406 D in HO

A christmas present I brought back home is this Brekina model of a Mercedes Benz L 406 D van. Out of the box it looks very ... clean. Let's fix that.

I have a sheet with license plate stickers. Apply them to front and rear. This was the first time I applied license plates to a car. The effect is subtle, but very effective.

Following photos I found on the Internet, I painted the mirror arms and back black. For the actual mirror I used aluminum metallic paint. Here's the before photo of these rather tiny parts...
While at it, I also painted the tires flat black.

Finally, I tried to apply only a very light dusting of pan pastels to show a slightly dirty, but rather new working van. In the end it got a little bit dirtier than I had planned, but I can't really complain.
