    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.

    Again well done Constatin , it looks very realistic.
    As long as I can model in N-scale, I know I'm not old

    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

    I try to improve and to make it faster the weathering of my rack. I use long time ago the Tamiya pannel line accent color. this stuff, flow in the joints of pannels and make the model to be more realistic. Just need to be more accurate when is applied, since the color content it's like very diluted paint. I just tested on the grills opening and on the roof of a Athearn locomotive, too shiny for my eyes. Just one color, black. I have also dark brown, brown and grey. Price it's ok, 40ml for a bottle which work a lot. Few pictures for reference.

    I almost finished the Athearn locomotive, just i have to clean the windshields, to remove the gunk discovered in this macro pictures. I prefer a loco dirty but not neglected. On this one, being a relatively new locomotive i did not use rust in any point. Just like this:

    One of this locomotive have the Soundtrax decoder with sound for AC 12and another have a Loksound v4. I try to find original sound for this locomotives, due to fact of strange sound played by loco fitted with Soundtrax AC12 project. This one make me mad when i run it. Sound like John Wayne captured when fire his Colt gun every 20 seconds. I will try to make and post a film with both of them for references. Sincerely i like the Loksound project, it's for a articulated locomotive like Challenger class. But i don't know how real is it.
