Is it paint covered? Or bare metal? Is that a gloss or spec map? How did you make such realistic looking wear and tear and dirt? What size is the texture? How did you make the paint ('m sure there's paint in there) look like paint?

Sorry about that deluge of questions.

It's supposed to be painted metal. I did not use a gloss or spec map, just diffuse and bump. The tear and dirt was hand-painted. The texture are actually several maps, 12 to be specific, with sizes from 256x256 up to 2048x2048. Same for the bump maps. The shader is nothing fancy, just a good old phong shader. I did use several light sources though (iirc 1 key and 3 fill lights, all with slightly different colors), still nothing fancy, just ordinary point lights. Rendered in POVRay.
Sorry I can't tell you what makes it look like paint, besides the lighting it's all pretty basic. Just a happy accident I guess :D

What brushes did you use for the dirt and wear? Default brushes with tweaked settings? Custom? Or did you use a combination of both? And how did you make the metal for the unpainted bits?

Sorry for yet more questions, but I've been starved of this information. I can't find it anywhere.

You did an excellent job on the modeling and texturing of this.
