    You guys do nice work. I'm generally too afraid to weather locos or rolling stock. But this little scratch mini-boose was more like a little shed to me, and buildings I can weather. It ended up turning out okay!

    Some light weathering on a Kato F7 A and B in Great Northern colors. I want these to look like they are only 2-3 years old, so trying to keep the weathering pretty light.

    First attempt at weathering using an airbrush and bragdon powders. Fine tip sharpies and a fine brush were used for the various graffiti tags. Pretty happy overall but I'm not quite satisfied with how the tags turned out, they look too Horribly Oversized imo.

    This picture is from a while back, but I always liked how it turned out. This was a custom decal/detail/weathering job for a friend. Started as a stock Conrail unit, but used the decal set to make it into the veterans' unit. I touched up and detailed things like the painting the running boards black, adding the white safety stripe on the sides, removing the CR can openers (matched the paint by carefully custom-mixing water-based acrylics, custom measuring, painting onto a card, letting it dry, and matching against the shell), changing the locomotive number on the cab sides (more blue patching first, of course) and number boards, and a few other odds and ends. Then I filthed it up just a bit. Can't wait until I actually have some more time to do more stuff like this.




    Oh, and if you look carefully, you'll see the final completed photo of the patched Conrail caboose with the correct height and couplers (seen here https://www.nscale.net/forums/showth...916#post333916) behind a couple of NSN custom cars.

    Nice painting and weathering job. I like the scenery as well - are the background trees models or real?

    Background trees are real (as are the houses, etc. back there). This was taken on a cloudy day on top of a stool with a box on top, shooting from out my dining room window.

    Great weathering , and the photography is sublime , if it weren't for the ground-cover I would have thought this was a photo of the prototype.

    Thanks! And I agree. The trained model railroader eye will catch the ground foam, and it needs more details (shrubs, weeds, grasses, trash, etc.). Those are all planned at some point. I've even scrounged up enough parts to make a static grass applicator, I just don't have the money to buy grass for it! :l:

    These are a before and after of some M/T hoppers. The one on the right had it's number changed and then got trucks and couplers painted a dark rust color, trip pin painted black, and some minor rust streaks applied. Next the body brushed with Monroe Models Grimy Black weathering powder. Finally a coat of dullcoat. The rust streaks practically disappeared but I am happy with the black making it look like a coal hopper that has been carrying coal. I was worried about blending in the number change and the Woodland Scenic dry transfer I used was not exact match, but I think it looks okay. I might go heavier on the other one to make it look a little more used and abused but I don't want to go overboard. Cheers! Maurice
