Thanks guys !

Sometimes I got the question asked do you work on commission after they see my work at shows. Well shure I do ! This time someone came to me at the expo at Leuven Belgium with a bright yellow boxcar for bananas. Sometimes I wonder if the manufacturers of rolling stock know anything about scale and color. Boy this car was bright, so bright yellow it almost hurt the eye. This made it a real challenge for me, tone it down a little with a couple of fades using the Ammo transparator medium for the first time. Couple of drops of white, bit yellow and a lot of transparator and thinner shaked well in a dropper bottle before spraying it on the car. After letting it dry for a day and a next coat with a satin varnish I put it away for a week to determine wat I would use on this car. Well decided to go with a wash for DAK, a bit brownish color for the pinwashes, wich let pop out the detail nicely. After that some streaking grime and a light spray of tracks primer on the undercarriage before I hit it with several pigments. Couple of rust tones to the springs and wheels set with streaking rust softened with odourless thinner, metal pigment on the buffers. Grease added to the bearing pods and puffers. Black and metal pigment combined with grease gives a nice result for the thick grease on the puffers in the real world. Pigments for dust on the undercarriage set with odourless thinner with the airbrush, manipulated with a brush and finally set with pigment fixer..

Got a lot of questions asked lately about filters. What are they and what do they do. Well, filters are very thin paints, 10% paint and 90% dilutant and they change the overall color of the paintjob and unify the several dots and spots painted on the model. I did try to capture it in pictures. Did one side of this boxcar with 2 layers of filters, one with a blue green color and one with a light brown ochre color applied in 2 thin coats with a drying time of 24 hour inbetween.

with filters.



without..



with filters..



without..



as you can see the filters change the overall appearance of the car and blend all the painted chips more together and soften its look. Choose for a second filter to gave it a more overall dusty apperance..

I think someone should have a tetanus shot before even touching one of these, the weathering is THAT good.
Martin, I am in awe of your skills every time you post something here. Few people can weather a car and have it look this authentic!

Well, think I'm done. Just a few minor things on the puffers..added dust, splatter and so on. Pigments and enamel splatter stuff from Ammo used..think it's a lovely couple but the yellow one needs a bit of dust to..

Boring Xmass days are nice to model [:D] More work done on the green Persil boxcar. Bit of rust on the chipping. Not on the walls, they are plywood but just on the metal frame..Please don't comment on the huge couplers, they are still on because the come in very handy turning the car without touching the fresh paint. Next job will be the roof, sheetmetal. Guess I chip it lightly and add more dust and grime on it. As the sliding panels are aluminium I added some light chips to the to..finaly some dust and this one will be done..

Hi Martin,That is some of the best "weathered" weathering that I've seen anywhere for a railroad that is "too busy to shop and fix it" :moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:
Your wagons always look safe to run, but they just look a bit battered around the edges :2t:
There is a big difference between "used but serviceable" and "being a pile of rust if the rivet drop hands". You have captured the "used but serviceable" look superbly.

Thanks John !

Suffering a bad attack of the flue, feels like I'm hit by a truck. Still can't do nothing, guess it's not in my genes. More work on the Persil boxcar. Saw this video by Mig Jimenez using enamels over chipping medium on a zaku. Thought it could be used on a boxcar roof as wel. So I sprayed several layers of scratches medium on the roof followed by streaking grime for interiors because the greyish brown color suited the roof of a boxcar a bit more. After a short drying time I started chipping with plain tapwater..well I always use demineralised. Also added a bit of african dust to the lower parts streaked with odourless thinner, followed by a light mist of the same streaking grime for interiors..
