Well, it's been a while since I've updated this, and for that I apologise.

I've been working on some HO scale cars over the last couple of days - a pair of Athearn/Roundhouse "blue box" type kits of different types of rib sided boxcars.

So far I've used a mix of oil paint and pan pastels on the cars, using the Mike Confalone method detailed in a video series on Trainmasters TV. Here's where I'm at right now:

Midland Belt #38134 (ex-Western Pacific)







Burlington Northern #732359

Today I've managed a little more on the BN car and started on a SOO LINE repaint.















Finally, I've started repainting and relettering a Southern Pacific caboose to go with them. This will be interesting to weather, that's for sure! :D

Hi Daniel :wave:



The weathering is looking very nice !

In South London EVERYTHING goes rusty !! ;)



I've always had a soft spot for those jazzy Railbox yellow schemes. :bg:

Not too much GRIME on that one please. ;)

Hey Si,

No, no avalanche of grime going on the railbox. I have a soft spot for railboxes, which is another reason I'm going modern on my HO scale layout.

This particular railbox is being weathered after one from a reference photo of an example which appears to have spent 30 years in the California sun, so it's very bleached but otherwise pretty well preserved.

I'll try and dig the photo out the next time I work on the car. :)

Your weathering is really great! :glad:


I'm going for a sun-bleached, sand-pitted kinda of look on my equipment.  Any suggestions on how to achieve that kind of look?  Got to keep it on the simple side.  I do have an airbrush just not sure where it is.  I generally use rattle-cans or acrylics.

Hi Michael.

I'd recommend a rattle can of matt sealer and some pan pastels.

Look for a lighter tone to what you're applying it to, and 100% use reference photos!
