Very nice Brian. You made good job of that. I must say I have never had the confidence to try weathering myself. No Guts me. John

Very nice work Brian. Did you use an airbrush, weathering powders or washes? I've never had the courage to do locos, but intend to have a go at a short rake of wagons sometime soon.

Just rough it all over with 2400grit w/dry and a dish scourer, then brush powders over it.
