The theme for this month's Photo Gallery is weathering. Photos of rolling stock, structures, track, or anything else is welcome. Once again, either prototype or model photos are welcome.

The usual cautions about copyright and file size are in effect.

This is an O scale Civil War era boxcar made from parts laser-cut by Bernie Kempinski:

The parts included both light colored basswood/plywood and dark colored fiberboard. One challenge was to get uniform coloring across the different materials. I primed everything with Titanium white spraypaint, then I used Pan Pastels, along with some oil washes. Metal parts were painted with good ol' Floquil Grimy Black. The roof is telephone book paper over cardboard, with several coats of brown oxide craft paint and then Pan Pastel weathering. Bernie will add his trucks and couplers and letter it for a southern RR. This'll be on his display at NMRA Atlanta later this month. I'm very happy how this came out.

p.s. the door latches work, they're etched stainless steel. One advantage of working in O scale!


Modeling 1890s (because the voices in my head told me to)

Naturally weathered 1:1 scale



Heavily weathered 1:87 scale

Lou, that weed sprayer outfit would be a great way to disguise a track cleaner or two.

Nice job so far on the hopper.
