    I airbrushed mine using some colors posted by others that airbrushed as well. Here's what I used:
    - Humbrol 140 - Dark Gull Gray
    - Humbrol 33 - Black
    - Humbrol Thinner

    I sprayed the center black first, then I sprayed the remainder with the Gull Gray. After that I mixed in a little bit of the black with the Gull gray and went back over the entire boot (including the center) for the weathering.

    The "brand name" of boot shouldn't matter so much. Directions for weathering boots are stickied at the top of this section:
