My first try at weathering

I will be the first to admit, I am far from being a good modeler. My favorite parts are the electronics (wiring, trackwork, DCC, etc) and running trains. I love seeing realistic scenery but my brain just doesn’t function in a way to make it. I am a left brain so everything is either yes/no, 1/0, etc. Being creative and doing “random” things like scenery just doesn’t work too well with me. But….here we go. My first attempt at some weathering. I am happy with the results considering I really didn’t know anything going into this. I have learned a lot and will continue to get better. But my mind still says “there has to be a system that I can replicate and weather cars in bulk”. ūüôā

  1. Being in the woodworking industry for 40 years, I know what you mean. There must be a system for a repetitive process.
    There is in a way but, there are so many different methods of weathering and each has their own little procedures and each of those can vary.

  2. I think many of us have been afraid we would “screw up” a good model with a failed attempt. What helped me past this was to find a photo of a similar car on the web, print it out and hang it up at my work bench to work from.
