    I couldn't agree more. Very beautiful work. I wish I had that kind of talent to weather that good. I can't even tell the difference weather it's HO or the real thing. outstanding job. Welcome to the gauge.

    KCS I will be putting air line's and coupler cut lever's as soon as there ready for the lay-out .They tend to get damaged with normal movement.

    Thanks for the pictures. Helps motivate me to get off my back-side and get started with the important things in life - model railroading.

    masu01 , I did the White was done with a mix of Model flex Reefer white and distilled water, I used a linner brush and started at the top by the hatch's, Then very slowly dragged the brush down the side of the car, The key to this to GO COMPLETELY down the side, And don't over load the brush It is very easy to work with and if you do get to much in a spot just dry off your brush and touch the spot where there's to much. If you or anybody has any more question's just ask I'd be happy to help.[​IMG]

    Here's another car I have been working on, It's a P2K 4277 Hopper.
    The picture's show a piece by piece weathering and assembly process
    that I use it makes weathering easyer for me if I can get to the litte piece's
    What I am using for the weathering is, 1- REEVE'S GOUCHE and 2- A.I.M's
    Weathering powder's. To apply them I use a brush and a cosmetic sponge.
    I am not quite done with her yet but as soon as I am I'll post the finished
    pic's[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
