I have been building a few Fords for a friend, at 1:48 scale.
(Birkshire Models)

He has the same type of theme for his layout as me,
old, worn out, rusty and too close soon.

This theme I love, as it was the way it was when I was growing up,
and it's relatively easy to create.

If a model is not perfect, it doesn't matter,
as it's been damaged during its working life, and paint is peeling off.

A  few more.


Not a good pic.

But good to see what can be done in any scale.

Since my layout would be set in 1935,
a 1928 truck would be seven years old,
and could easily show a lot of wear. 


Thanks for posting the photos. 

I understand non-Members, not 'Logged In' on Freerails,
are not able to see any of the 'Attached Images'. 

Too bad, your trucks are superb !

Thanks David

For some reason,
I find it easier to make a worn out looking vehicle,
than a new look vehicle.


Might be my life style these days WORN OUT.

Haha.

I once spent a lot of time weathering some N-scale models,
until I was happy with the effect. 

I gave the engines and cars a coat of Dullcoat...
AND ALL THE WEATHERING DISAPPEARED !!


To this day, I've never tried again. 

Some day all these models will go to new owners,
and they can do the weathering. 

:wave: 

Regards, Dave L.

I have used Dullcoat back in the eighties,
I wasn't too happy with the results.

So I do not use it now.

Just the weathering powders and solutions.
I'm happy with the results for the times I am modelling.


We all have our little favourite tools to do a job,
and that's great in this hobby.

So many different ideas and interests.


.......Peter

My vehicles are a spin-off of Gn15 modeling.
I never intended it to be the major interest it has become.

Gn15 was a spin-off of my Large Scale trolleys.
This hobby has so many facets to lead one astray.

I have to be careful not to permit 1:24 airplanes,
and steamboats to grab hold.

Regards, Dave L.

Like the weathering work on the trucks.


Have a few I need to get weathered,

also some construction models.

My main interest is railway modelling,
not modelling vehicles.

But I have to say I enjoyed building these vehicles,
and the best part is the weathering.

Changing a shiny, glossy, toyish model,
into something believable.

Used grotty models are what I really enjoy.
I can make a nice model and be happy with it.

If I make a big mistake, so what,
just wash it, and start again.

Well it's almost foolproof.

;) 

Arh...
The fun of this part of the hobby has grown on me.
 
But I have three more trucks to build,
and that will be the end of it.

Back to trains....  Haha. 

:old dude:

........Peter.

I'm getting ready to revisit this 1917 Studebaker project. 

I've ordered some paint for the wheels.
