    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

    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.

    Four PA-PB locomotives from KATO are received this days the well deserved patina. I change completely my technique, i just go ahead with Tamiya washes and Bragdon powders. In this way, is easy to wipe out completely without affecting the paint of model. If i do not like or is overdue, i wash with Tamiya X20A acrylic paint thinner. Two-three days, i apply washes and clean washes until locomotives look like in the pictures found on web. I did not want rust anywhere, just grime, dust, dirt and smoked fan grills and exhaust stack. Loke i said, if i want to correct or to clean brand new the model, i just use acrylic thinner and became new, even after one year. Do not affect paint. First two, PA1-PB! from Kato:

    Nice job there. I love the weathering.

    All by brushes and finger. I just forget to specify the use of airbrush around base of loco (front ,trucks, fuel tank base) with Tamiya panel accent brown, just to replicate the dust and dirt from running. They have 4 colors: Black, grey, brawn and dark brown. More pictures here, in Gallery:

    PA1+PB! DELAWARE & HUDSON. Same as above technology. I still have to do more then 50 diesels, brand new. I just have time to mount sound decoder, did not even make the settings to make them to run perfect. I just observe yesterday when i make the movies and running. Usually i like to set manual notching on decoders, run more natural. First the engineer start the engine, increase the load and after start to move the locomotive. I have two pictures the same, only one is with flash, another without. I use to do pictures macro when i weather a model, download to computer and see how look, if need more, or need less. Always it's better less, you can add more next step. At least with this Tamiya washes, easy to correct anytime by brush and thinner.
