Does anyone know of a good website to check out techniques for weathering the insides of vehicles? I am never pleased with my work on this and figured it's time to learn what others do. Thanks!

Im not sure of any websites but two books/magazines worth checking out are The Weathering Magazine's issue on interiors and The Encyclopedia of Armor Modeling Techniques volume on interiors. If you look around you can find a .pdf version of the magazine issue.

Hope this helps.

The absolute best source for all things weathering and finishing techniques is Rinaldi Studio and his excellent Tank Art books. Mr. Rinaldi is not connected in any way to any “weathering” product manufactures therefore his books are truly instructionally driven. So check out his Facebook link above and be prepare to have your painting/weathering/finishing skills taken to the next level. Good Luck!

At least the first volume has nothing on interiors other than 2 pages for a 1/48 Sd.Kfz. 251/22 which, in my opinion, give very little help. May be subsequent volumes are better in this sense.

I have tankart 1,2 and 4 that for me are fantastic books I love them, but on the interior there is very little unfortunately,although it's easy to take the techniques used for the exteriors and "translate" them for the interiors,if Rinaldi do an edition only on the interior I think it would be a great success.

in the Vol.4 there's the Grille and the Nashorn with the interiors,in the Vol.2 anything...


P.S.:....Mike!!....we need some more interiors!!...and a new Tankart Volume on WWI!!!!!!....pleeeeeeese...

Mig's Encyclopedia of Armor Vol. 2 is about interiors. I have it and can recommend it for a reference book.
