Show us your weathering skills...

Postby tractor37 » Sun Jun 19, 2011 9:31 am

I'd thought I'd start this to find out what peoples preferred methods of weathering are and what their best efforts look like.
I'll start off with these few pics:
Vitrains 37's weathered with modelmates oil brown weathering spray. First attempts at a loco!

First was the loco next up the rolling stock. Also used modelmates weathering spray and tamiya powders.. Love them.
These wagons were some plaing boring hornby items before altering them for a friend 'cosxr2i':

Heres one of a scrap line class 47 I did for a member of this forum ~

Image
It uses several techniques, including the use of salt to create the paint blisters on the cab roof, dry brushing, grime washes and paint fading to create a very patchy finish based on a class 47 that was dumped in a local scrap line for almost a decade.

A more basic weathering job on a kit built van~

Image
The van was built from a Parkside kit and initially painted with a base coat that was a mix of grey and brown (I forget which was used) to represent unpainted wood. A few bodyside planks were selected and scratched to produce a wood grain and then masked before the normal BR Bauxite livery was applied over the top. Then it was just given a light dirt wash and the body framework and chassis dry brushed to pick out some of the detail.

I like to use a combination of powders and railmatch paint.

Here's my first attempts at creating rust and streaking on a couple of locos.
1st up is my heljan crompton the base muck is modelmates spray dye and the rust and streaking is dry brushed using designers gouache.
Image
2nd is a vitrains tractor with the same combination of weathering as above but with added acrylics used for the heavier streaking.

That's a strangely powerful and evocative image, Bazmatic. I like it.

Just waiting for these 3 to fully dry ......

'Plastic' coal removed and replaced with a glued in granular load. Note the middle wagon panel repairs.
Still not finished my stock of 10 x 21 ton hoppers, but something to do while it's very cold in my garage
where the layouts are.
