Anyone familiar with our Forum knows that we are obsessed with rust, and how to model it. So the focus of this first Photo Gallery of the new decade is "RUST". Feel free to post any picture that contains a rusty item. It doesn't matter if it is just a rusty hinge, a rusted out vehicle, a rusty metal roof, or rust on some rolling stock. It it contains rust, the photo is welcome. Prototype pictures of interesting rusty objects that might stimulate our modeling juices are also welcome.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

I want to thank our own "Red P" (Scott) for suggesting this theme!

Here is a rather well-used 0-6-0 let loose out on the main.

Here's something different to start things off, a photo of my rusty old 1957 Plymouth when I found her in Georgia last year. What's unique is that besides the rust, the patches showing through on the door and fender are factory applied body filler that was never primed. Moisture eventually won out and the paint peeled away leaving the effect you see. Interestingly enough, the filler itself is tough as nails. This was a common problem for a lot of Chrysler products back then as they started using bad steel imported from Japan that rusted prematurely (but that's another story). Just a bit of handy info if you've got some old fifties era cars sitting around on a contemporary era layout.

Did someone say "Rust?"

I posted these back in the summer of 05 as a study in the color(s) and texture(s) of rust....

These photos were taken of my R.L. Graves pulp mill, which was built from a Master Creations Hyde pulp mill kit. The rust effects were created with Sophisticated Finishes Rust Antiquing.
