It's not only grasses and weeds I'm doing. Also a bit of weathering,something I really like.In the spare hours I'm working on a couple of projects. Having some MBW Spur 1 / Gauge 1 cars on hand I made a start on 2 of them. First coats are the fades, using a mixture of Vallejo Acrylic washes. White with some drops of the original color. Roof and additional straaks with several AK interaktive and Ammo enamel washes. Bit of Panpastels on the roof to..

Thanks guys !!

Well a little bit about the materials used. First layer with a wash to fade the color. I do not like plain whites on the redish boxcar tone so I used white combined with dark rust..



The roof is entirely done with an AK interactive paneliner in this case the one for wintercamouflage because I do like the somewhat greenish color..



Because this car is in serice for a short time I did cut back on the fades and stick with some plain dirt and streaks..cars in service dirty up don't they. Did use the AK interactive straking grime for panzer grey this time. The tone is more brownish..



Streaking and cleaning done with an odourless thinner..AK or Ammo doesn't matter wich brand..the are much softer then the ones in the DIY shop. You could buy one out of an artist range..





What I think is the advantage this enamel products have, they dry pretty fast but the can be worked on after they are dry. Even after a couple of hours. The door for instance I didn't like the looks so I went over it after the photo shoot. You can't do that with acrylics. Oils could be used but in this case I like the faster drying time of the enamel based paints..For now I do let them dry for 24 hours before I add another layer..Didn't shoot a picture of the looks of the door yet..

Martin, I really appreciate your listing the products you used. So few people do that.

You're welcome Lee..

Well with a brush dipped in odourless thiiner, tipped on a paper towel to have it just a bit moist I reworked the door I didn;t like..



Pretty happy with it now..so I worked my way around the car..both ends and the other side with the same AK product..





Because of the Europ signage and the fact the car is build in 1960 and only 4 years in service before they changed it in to UIC markings I didn't wanna overdo this one.
Lined it up with the "53 build car..



With AK interactive interior streaking effects I added some dirt to these aluminium colored panels..



Also pinwashed a couple of the rivets with the same stuff..



Taking AK's Shafts grease and Bearings I added some grease effect on the wheelpods..





That's it for now..

Good point. With weathering, it is so easy to go further than you should.
My biggest challenge recently was weathering a coach to show it was very well used, but not too much so. That is much more difficult than it sounds, but you already have found that out for yourself.

WOW. I need to find some of that as I've never seen anything that has the grease look like that does!

Consider the two scale 1 project done, some final thingies added..maybe I can go a bit further but you have to stop at a time..



Added some graese to the puffers, AK burned jet engine pigment combined withe the shafts and bearings grease..





The other car I used a new Vallejo product for grease spills..





this looks ok to me to, same on the puffers combined with the burned jet engine pigment..





For the rest I darkened the steel frame a bit more on this car, has seen longer service. Using Panpastel raw umber extra dark..



Well that's it for this project, have 4 more to go so I start on 2 soon..
In the mean time I'm also working on a couple of 0 scale cars, from a German company called Brawa. Very nice and detailed and the come these screw couplers you just hae to add..



Pretty much a basic coat on this one using AK and Ammo trackrust primers. Sprayed on with and airbrush.
And now the pretty one, cool car but so yellow it hurts the eye.



You can see the factory yellow on the inside, faded it with a Vallejo white wash





Added a basic pin wash with an Ammo wash for DAK..bit on the brown dusty side..

That's it for today folks !!

Hi Marty,

When you add the panel wash on the good's vans walls and roofs, is it large wide strips or similar to a pin wash prior to wiping with the thinner?
