    Damage/Weathering?

    I have a set of Sterilite trash can armor, and Im trying to find a way of giving it dents and scratches without the use of a dremel. I don't have many tools; I guess Im asking for a poor man's method. Can anyone help?

    You can use a lighter to get the plastic soft and then put dents in it with something blunt. That is how I did my Fettpride knees.

    Just be careful. It takes only a few seconds of heat to make the plastic soft.

    Will do. For the blunt object, how does a broomstick sound? Or should it be something thicker?

    That is pretty big. I used a rounded tip of a hightlighter cap.

    I would use an end of a modeling file!

    I had to heat and dent my FP knees as well. I went outside and found some small stones to use. That way I had slightly odd shaped dents.
