    Many people have asked me about how I get certain effects, so
    I've put together a few of them if you want to try them.
    I have recently added some of the weathering techniques that I
    use, on my website. You can find these techniques on my "Inspiration Yard" page.

    I've included here a pic of my latest car.
    A 50' RAILBOX Double Door "Union Railroad of Oregon"

    This pic shows some nice roof rust and a few white stones and pebbles, just sitting up top, maybe from some kids who had
    thrown them.

    I actually kind of stumbled on doing that when I was giving the roof some texture. I guess that's how new techniques are found.

    I will post one more pic, but no more pics here. I don't want to be a hog. You can see the full assortment of pics for the latest car in my gallery. CAR 20

    Thanks and Enjoy, Rich Divizio

    Drop me an email if you have any questions.

    Hello Rich,

    Great stuff as always. Please, I sincerely doubt that showing us weathered models of this quality would ever get you described as a bandwidth 'hog' no matter how many pics you show.

    Keep 'em coming.

    Well, If you guys insist. Here's one of those times where you
    create a technique by accident.
    If you look closely, look how dry this pitted rust came out.

    Get Some Testors Clear Parts Cement & Window Maker.
    Dab it on where ever, then dab that wet spot with a dry brush
    full of your rust colored weathering powder or chalk.
    NOTE: The cement dries almost instantly so you have to be ready with the dabbing of your dry brush. What's nice is the tip on the cement applicator is tiny so you can do small rust spots or just add more to make a larger spot.
    For more detailed instructions just go to my site in the Inspiration Yard.[/URL]

    Thanks again, Rich Divizio
