Thankfully, it didn't last too long, and I did get downstairs and install a G/T or six, then started weathering freight cars, and recently worked on my Milford Produce Supply (M.P.S.). Here's some pixes of my latest attempts at quality work. Note: Pixes were all taken with my 5MP Camera in my Droid2 - the wife has the Lumix, with the Leica lens on vacation out West.
|An Atlas(?) Coal Hopper - I followed Scott's weathering technique: Dull Coat, A&I all over, then Rust-All; looks better in person.|
|Same methodology, on an old Athearn hopper, except this one is used in Ballast Service on my layout. I added the ACI, yellow dot, and Consolidated Stencil decals. I tried to use a prototype photo of a similar car.|
|Another in-progress car, with some grafitti added, as we ll as different consolidated stencils.|
|Milford Produce - out-building. Added some signs, and started weathering using Bragdon's Wx Powders. It is showing darker than actually is, in this photo.|
|New signage I created to make it my structure - after a request from a friend, I will explain how I did this in a later posting.|
|Mock-up of the three parts to the building: Main, connector (missing corrugated siding), and out-building.|
|Another view of the mock-up. It is slightly different than what the mfr's instructions suggest, to suit the space it will fit in.|
