Actually, i didn't bother to smooth the surface. I have a "scriber", that i carved from blunt hobby knife blade. It came out too crude for actual scribing, but is OK for cutting something off. Basically, i "scribed" around those magazines until i was through plastic. Then i cut out piece of thin pla-plate and glued it to cover the hole. That's the grey (in reality painted aluminium) square in the inner bottom part of the shield.

On this one i kept weathering to the minimum. I used powder of dark brown pastel and charcoal pencil. And since model was painted with matt enamels, powder stuck so good, that i had to use rubber to remove it from unwanted places. I believe, in some photos you can see sharper edges where i tried to rub pastels off. Back then i had no concept of using them in wet form...
