Ok, so after staring at the Dog Poo brown of my paint job and knowing that wasn't the "look" I was going after, I weighed my options.

Option 1: just feed the dog something different next time. Jose.

Having almost none of the "right" things to weather an Loco, what better time to weather a Loco?

Nothing I tried would take off the Line Name, so I just sanded it off with 220 then 400 for a little smoothing and finished it off with a q-tip and black paint.

Thinned down some shades of brown and some black and went at it.

To get a little "Sun Fade" effect, I had heard about spraying a light coat of white and to get other effects dusting with colors like rust and such.

Well not having my airbrush working, spraying was not an option, and no chalk powders so paint would have to do.

But to dull it all down and get a little Sun Fade as well a some dust, I chrushed up a little dryed out Carving Plaster in my hand and just rolled the Loco around in my palm while some of the paint was slightly wet and a bit more after it dried.

Still need to add some black shadow effects in a few small spots, but for a very cheap Loco, I think it looks ok and will fit in with the layout, at least until I can build a loco of my own design.

You're already better than most of us at weathering if thats what you can do on that little loco. Certainly better than me. Good job, it looks great:2t:
