Since I cant use an airbrush at the moment I decided to tacle this build with spray cans only. Thought it was a fun idea, at first...

The biggest problem with spray cans is trying to find the right colors since you can't custom mix them

Looks like you did pretty good

You can use the "sponge" method to add some transition from the red to pink color along the edges of the panel chipping (basically tear a piece of sponge and dip it in the paint and kind of blot it on)

example before...

and after

You can also use the "toothbrush splatter" method for the dark green porsche fender part the side

put some thin paint on the toothbrush and lightly flick it with your fingers to get those random spatters

Despite the Slave 1 being very weathered in the Mandalorian I am going for subtle staining that I will fade even more.

I also have moded the kit parts for the ramp to be more accurate to the show, will try to get a good picture at some point.
