Oil weathering takes time, but is worth it in the long run.

Consider this one done. Couple of pigments to the roof, mixture of Ammo, AK, Vallejo and stuff from the artstore. Bit of dust on the underframe with Panpastel en some streaks more with dark brown for green vehicles from Ammo.













Funny how the camera changes color with the same studio lights but a different background..

The finished car looks really good. I was concerned that the trucks looked to 'rusty'. But the last photo in situ on the layout makes them look perfect in their all over dirty grey.
Trick of the camera I guess.

Is there really such a thing as, "looking too rusty", when it comes to railroad roiling stock?

Howdy Lee. Yes, most of us appreciate rusty and grimy locos & cars (me included), BUT there are/were exceptions to "too rusty". One case, a narrow gauge logger, the West Side Lumber Co. repainted and repaired their locos & cars once a year while hauling logs was slow. Their Shays and log cars, etc. were kept in excellent shape and photos show this. There were others which kept things nice & clean but for some reason on a model it "just don't look right!"
It has taken me a while to change my personal preferences to funk, the road I model pretty much kept their stuff clean and un-rusty (there may have been exceptions however).
Don't let my BS affect how we view our models, I love rust, grime, dirt, and soot as much as the next guy...I just had to go through the "12 step program" of funkiness and you know how anal we can be!

Woodrow

BTW-this weathering thread is very nice, I rate the work as superb.

Lee;
So far as trucks go - yes there is. for the most parts trucks and the underfloor area of railroad cars gets to a dirty mid grey, with white flecks and stays there.

Same as modern roller bearing wheel faces. They get rusty early on in the day and then fade out to the same basic grey over time.

Slow progress on the coal hoppers. Drying times are the modelers worse nightmare. Added a bit of spotty rust on one of the black, now more greyish cars. The redish one I just had to try some basic fading and other soot and grimes with Panpastel only. Sealed inbetween with AK ultra matte varnish..
