|Before much of anything, I decided to add some BBs, to increase the weight; used Elmer's glue.|
|Fellow modeler & friend Ralph DeBlasi has recommended using some of the AK Interactive paints, so I gave a few a try.|
Love the results, after using a trio of Crusted Rust, Bleeding Rust, Track Wash, and Grime.
|Really think these paints are making it look used and crusty, circa the transition from SBD to CSX (about 1989-1990).|
|The interior was done the same way, but I added another color, Oily grime.|
|After the paints dried, I added a little too much Bragdon's Ash Wx Powders, but quickly removed some off, using water & a q-tip.|
|Here she is, at the Dominion Scrap & Salvage, getting put to good use.|
