    I use India ink and alcohol mix and rust color paint pins. Building looks great who makes it? And top it off with a tamiya dull coat.

    I usually do all that to my wood buildings as well as dirtying up painted structures.
    The kit is part of a two piece kit like the Rix buildings but I can’t remember whose right now , CRS

    When I figure it out I’ll let ya know

    How weathered do you want it? You can do a lot of damage with Bragdon powder.

    I also like oil paints. Burn umber and burnt sienna. The long drying time means it's pretty forgiving. The powders and alcohol/India ink already mentioned work great too - you have lots of options.

    You should paint it first , a spray of gray primer will take the plastic look away and will give you more tooth for the powders.

    As long as I can model in N-scale, I know I'm not old

    I do as @Janbouli and prime everything first. You might want to look @Allen H. method for using oil paints to weather rolling stock

    The building across the street from me has lots of rust on it, but then it is only a few ft from salt water.

    When it comes to shiny or slick surfaces like these kind of plastic kits as this one is or Walthers Cornerstone & DPM buildings, I usually spray the whole thing with Dullcoat to get better adhesion and take away the shiny look then apply paint, wash and/or powders.

    Saw this on my bicycle ride today and thought of this thread. This prototype is on the older, uh, extreme weathering side.

    That is precisely the kind of prototype I love to model. On projects like that, sloppy assembly skills are a positive boon rather than a detriment

    Yep agreed, it does look good especially the peeling white paint effect - brilliant!
