    2-8-8-2 LIFE LIKE PROTO. Weathered just to make faded the plastic and to look more natural. I avoid tons of rust, just in spots where appear naturally.Always less look better.:

    I found some kind of exhaust pieces and another plastic in the box, still there, i don't know where is to put or to use. A 100 points locomotive, i own also a FL-9 from RAPIDO and wait for more models in the future.

    Bachman 2-6-6-2 Loksound decoder. TSU750 was to large to fit in small tender.

    Another weathered locomotive which in real life don't exist in this color. Athearn F59PH Warbonnet color. I buy because of silver-red color but was to shiny to remain like this. Not very detailed on trucks, plastic used for molding of truck it's to pale and unrealistic. But some color washes, wipe out the gloss on paint and make more evident the details on side of truck's. Pictured face to face with KATO FA7 untouched, right from the box for comparison.

    I just use diluted acrylic varnish mix with few drop of white, just to simulate the dust between the panels. On trucks diluted black wash and little rust. They been washed at the end with a brush and alcohol.

    Looks great Constatin, nice subtle weathering.

    Thanks. Steamers which i have in my rack pass already under my brush soiled on acrylic diluted washes or Bragdon powders. Diesels just a dozen. Still waiting on display. It's time consuming process for making a loco to look natural. I don't like the glossy FERRARI stile paint finish on locomotives. Even a week new lokomotive have smoke on exhaust, traces of oil on joints and black rust powder on brakes. This i try to recreate. Long time to achieve this and just 10 second to wash on warm water and liquid soap if the result is not the desired one. On a black locomotive you can not see all doors and panels if the loco is molded and have a uniform color.

    I found a picture of brand new Kato straight from the box. To shiny for my eye. Just for reference.

    Barely can be observed the panels and the joints of doors and the panels. I prefer the dirty one but not rusted, just used on daily basis.

    Pair of Life-Like 2-8-4 Berkshire. Nice running locomotive ( a native lazy locomotive) after a pair of BullfrogSnot added on a axle. Acrylic washes and Bragdon powders. Neolube 2 on rods and wheels. A decent locomotive, not so easy to convert to DCC. Involve totally dismantling of locomotive, not for a cardiac person.

    I did not go aggressive on rusting the tender, just i want to reproduce the grime and dust on joints, rivets and panels. A decent built locomotive.

    I have 2 of them, different numbers but also, due to weathering become slightly different tone. I use acrylic varnish, Bragdon powders and some washes very diluted plus a drop of alcohol
