Beautiful job again Dave, love the subtle weathering effects. You are a master at this!

Thanks Richard…!

Photos help looking at your work for sure….
On this one I never noticed the horizontal wash line on the last right section of the 3800 cu ft hopper…til now
I will have to do something about that… maybe some scratches or a patch
It’s all about the learning process…

Here is a Walthers Mainline car that I picked up a couple years ago from Midwest Model Railroad…
Tried some to replicate some flaked and bubbled paint on the logo along with a light fade and a moderate amount of grime…

I must say that your weathering and aging skills are a true work of art! and now off I go to apply
your techniques to my own rolling stock!
Cheers,
