Well done. I don't know if it is right to show rusting
in space, but this is a replica of the studio model, so
I guess it checks out.

Thanks, KWSTAS,

I agree. No oxygen in space means no rust. Also, considering the DS at that time was "brand new", there shouldn't be a lot of grime on it either. In fact, it should be pristine.
But it could have been built in a tropical/corrosive atmosphere and ferried to space for assembly.

I tried to approximate the weathering that was actually on the studio model from photos off of modelermagic.com.

Perhaps those are not rust stains. But it does answer the question of why there is more black and brown weathering on the bottom part of the turret.

When I was building this I had a little fun with some scrap plastic and some rarely used tank parts.
