    Just got the body weathered on this class A early type shay.
    Next thing to do is to weather the shay itself.

    The shay is.......just too much! It's the expression of creativity, that makes freelancing so much fun, and On30 is a great way to freelance.
    Modeling a prototype, getting the correct size handgrabs in the proper locations, counting rivets, has its place, but what you're doing is pure creativity. Keep it up, this is FUN!

    Very Nice Paul , On3 allows you to see a lot of details that you may miss in HO , i was delighted to be able to see the bolts on your early shay and see the soot on the face of the driver.

    Keep the photos coming when you can , they inspire us :D

    What can i shay that hasn't already been shaid? (sorry, couldn't resist!). Amazing detail, really like what you've done.

    What kind of wood are you using and how do you weather it? Can't wait to see it totally weathered. Regards,

    Thanks alot kind people.

    I use plain old stripwood which is then stained with "Antique Pine" whilst it is still a little damp I scrape a craft knife down each plank and then use chaulks to weather it off.
