Simple Weathering Progress

Postby carnehan » Mon Mar 04, 2013 10:19 am

While I continue to gather up track for my layout I have continued to prepare some of the fixtures and fittings. Having completed the Dapol engine shed a couple of weeks ago I have turned to rolling stock and buffers. My weathering techniques are limited and am still learning but thought I would share a buffer stop and open wagon that I have just completed.

Both were painted with Revell paints before adding a brush of black acrylic and rubbed to give the desired effect. Personally I am quite happy with the outcome and enhance the look of the pieces from the drab plastic bought look.

Any thoughts, as always, will be greatly appreciated.

I like how you have done the buffers. And the wagon looks great. Im in the same boat. Collecting track etc before starting layout. So ive been weathering rolling stock at the moment
Keep up the good work

It's a case of less being more, your light touch weathering looks far more "workaday" than some of the filth and grunge jobs that are seen.
