Here's one from Jon Grant (a member here, but active poster at *gasp* another forum)
I have a link on my site that has weathering in it.
This guy has a few other tips as well that you may want to look at.
Deano's "Easy Weathering" Tutorial
Some of the best work's of art you will ever see on these sites from some of the best weathering guy's in the world.
Some freelanced weathering and some exact prototype weathering. You won't be disappointed.
Are we allowed to post links to other forum's?
Here's a link to a spacific picture in a set of pictures on Mellow Mike's site. http://www.mellowmike.com/FR8_Cars/TASX_Ends.html I wanted to point out this one because it's a really good example of "paying attention to detail". Notice on the end's of the car where the wheel "spatter" has left two lines up the tank of the car. Knock out work.
Certainly! The whole point of this thread is to share ideas, whether it's a showcase of someone's work, or a step-by-step "how-to".
It does surprise me, though, that weathering has become a separate, and commercially viable, part of custom work, especially when it's such a fun and easy-to-do procedure. There is some well-done work in those links, although it's sad to note that the one guy no longer has the time for a layout where he can enjoy his own work. That's the main reason that I've more-or-less stopped doing custom painting - making money was getting in the way of having fun.
Well, at ModelTrainsWeathered.com a discussion about Mellow Mike blew pretty big because someone downed on someone else's work. I'm gussing him? Anyway there was also a lin to ebay for 2 89' flat cars custom build with loads and details that sold for almost $600. The thread on MTW was locked because of someone blowing up about Mike being a real a** all the time to everybody. I admire his work but from what I've read on his site in the FAQ he does seem to be that kind of person because of the way he treats everyone even when it's the nicest of people asking a simple little ol' question. I dunno. I can always pick up the same type of weathering tip's with the same results as him from nicer people.
Jim Six is another talented "weatherer" whose work can be found here and there on the internet.
This article from the Ottawa Valley Associated Railroaders lists a series of colours and blends that can be used to simulate everything from dirt to rust.
3 threads from doctorwayne himself. All threads are related.
The 1st one explains the "Inverted vee technique" and the 2nd one is more general. The 3rd deals with lettering changes.
Some simple tips for weathering with an airbrush...
A few weathered reefers...
Some tips for dating models...
I can not view any of the links in this thread!!!!
All of the links to threads inside the Guage take me to the main page.
Sorry about that. The links in the second post are not working, but all others are. Our "Technical Staff" is working on the problem. :-D:-D
The links in the second post are now working. :-D:-D
