Great tips always good to have a refresh of old and some not so old tips.
Thanks for posting this old post Woodie.

Herb.
None of my cars will be retired on my SFRSD.

I model a specific time period on the Santa Fe,
and only purchased Locos and cars applicable to that time period.

Have fun today.

Rod.

It's been awhile since I revisited this thread, and I did notice one omission,
that should have been included under weathering with India ink and alcohol.

Now all you old-timers that have been around likely know this,
but for those just getting wet feet around here...

Rubbing alcohol comes in several forms,
and the common 1.99 version is approximately a 70/30 mix of water and alcohol...
This is BAD...

You want the 94% or better yet the 97% alcohol version...
and of course it will run closer to 5 Bucks American....

That's like 40.00 Canadian eh he he....
just kidding......

Water will make light woods paper etc curl as you're weathering,
where the higher alcohol version evaporates quickly,
keeping those great masterpieces of yours in great shape....

OK carry on..

:)
