    How did you do the rail? The hopper is excellent, some of the best weathering I have seen.

    tweet469 The track was done with a custom mix of rust sprayed with a airbrush then I brush painted on some raw seinna gouache and let it dry.[​IMG]

    Mighty fine work Dave! We need to convince you to do a tutorial or an article for the Gauge E-Zine. I always enjoy seeing how somebody does weathering, so far I haven't seen a wrong way to weather stuff. It's fun to learn lots of techniques and then apply them so your efforts all look different.

    An outstanding example of weathering - fantastic job! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
    Is the car's lettering also your work? If yes, then your talents are still more awesome!
