We spend considerable time weathering our models. In fact, there are many threads on this Forum devoted to the subject. Let's begin 2011 by sharing photos of some of our favorite examples of weathering on either structures or rolling stock. If you have any prototype pictures that show great examples of Mother Nature's weathering, feel free to post those, too.

I once however.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,

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

Thinking Ahead: In a month or two I will open a Photo Gallery devoted to 'night shots'. Since these take some staging and experimentation, I'm giving all members some time to try their hand at it. Give it a try. I think you will have some fun. Be ready to share your results with the rest of the crew in the near future.

I'll kick off the year with this photo of a group of sheds in the main yard on my Jersey Highlands RR. They are weathered with A&I washes and with chalks.

My version of the Troels Kirk Cannery, still to be completed, shows A/I with drybrushing to achieve the blue walls and paint and powders to get the effect of weathered corrugated roof panels.

Good subject, Bruce. I actually have something to contribute! I'll have to think about the night shot, too.

Below are shots of the original hoist house for my anthracite mine:

A bit of Turtle-wax and it should buff out OK.....
