Nice weathering! Just wondering, do you need to wash the locos to get some rain effects or do you only do away with air brushing?

Ofcause, not on the same scale.
It spews hot burning oil out of the exhaust like the Deltic when at full trottle too .

I'm just working with the airbrush at the moment, I haven't experimented with any rain effects yet.

I see. Just wondering, what's the closest colour i can get with using Tamiya paints? My country stocks a huge pile of tamiya and gunze's paint. I was thinking of using either light grey/german grey sprayed lightly then using some soot colour from Mr Gunze too. What do you think? I still cant find any colour to use to spray some rust/grime colour on the bogies, was thinking red brown sprayed very lightly over

Red brown could work. Tamiya paints are very good, you want to look at blacks, browns, oranges, reds and greys. Have you thought of mixing your own colours using tamiya paints?

Yeah i did, when i did my washes on my 1:450 ship. Turns out fine. I also bought a set of weathering powders from Gunze, they seemed more worth the buck than Tamiya as they came in bigger quantities in powder form in bottles and is capable of being a paint solution when diluted with thinner or a dry brush as pastel powders, while the Tamiya is best used as brushed on powders(they looked like cosmetic stuffs truth be told). Was thinking of using them on the bogies once i get my first weathering done. Planning to try it on a MK1 brake coach, at least if it turns out rather bad i can make it into an abandoned coach :lol: :lol:

Hi

I just found your thread and am mightily impressed with your work. I have been subscribed to your YouTube channel for a while now and regularly watch your vids, which are also excellent. They have inspired me as a newcomer to the hobby and provide a brilliant resource for all of us I reckon. Keep up the good work and keep them 'how to' vids flowing :D

PS: What are the dimensions of your layout? I am interested to know for my own layout as to just what I can achieve in the space I have (10' 6" x 7' 8").

Cheers

Lofty

A quick look at the users stats shows he has not been on here for two years, so I wouldn't bank on getting a reply any time soon.

Old thread I appreciate but as a new comer to all this I am blown away by some of the standards I am seeing, Staggering. And the YouTube to match.
