The first (and last) time we had a thread with this title was in January of 2011, so you would think this should be Version 2.0. However, in July 2013 we had a Gallery Theme on weathering with a different title, hence the decision to call this Version 2.5.

We spend considerable time weathering our models. In fact, there are many threads on this Forum devoted to the subject. So, it is most fitting for us to share 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, however, are allowed.

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

Thinking Ahead: In January 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 to help kick off the new year!

One of my weathered hoppers. All weathering on the hopper itself was done with a pastel pencil. The wheels and trucks were weathered with a thin wash of rust colored water based paint.

That looks terrific, Bruce. What pastel pencil did you use?

This was done with baking soda, acrylic paints and I/A washes.

Russ,

It is the Contť Pastel Pencil that on their color chart is called No. 1 and described as Bistre.



I rub some on the ribs, rivet joints, top edge, etc. and then smooth around with an eye shadow applicator (sponge).

Terrell, I agree with Frank-nice work.

May I ask how the baking soda is used?

Thanks, Frank and Carl. The baking soda is used to give the rust that flaky, crusted look. I painted on the rust colored paint, sprinkled the baking soda over the wet paint. Then wet it down and went over it with a wash of the same color paint. Then maybe a little I/A after it dried or sometimes a different rust color.

But.... "warning".... after several months I noticed the white from the baking soda was bleeding back through. So I recently had to go back over several places and re-rust them. Don't know why it does that, but I may have to still touch up a few places. When I get around to it.

Wood was stained with RIT dye in alcohol. Rust was done by dissolving steel wool in bleach, and adding a drop of white glue. Everything but trucks and couplers is "scratch".

Hi all,

Here is a recent example of mine in HO scale. I use auto primer, dull-cote, chalk and black wash.

This was done a while ago, but I thought it would fit.

Thanks for helping get this month's Gallery up and running, guys.

Here is some crusty rust on a wheelset destined for a discard heap near the backshop. (Brush dipped in alcohol and then into weathering powder.)

Same technique as the Porter above, except this was done first, as an experiment.
