Hi all, I had a bash at adding some more weathering to a HO scale boxcar that I started a while back. Afterall, I couldn't really make it any worse, could I?

Coz I'm a lazy git, I'll just post the link for where I've posted it before...

Thanks Bish - although seeing the work of Steve4 and others relegates me back to being a hack amateur! :lol:

Mikey, I have to echo what others have said, top notch job mate! (especially since I have absolutely no interest in railroad modelling, something my father was bitterly disappointed with) Don't sell yourself short by saying you are an amateur, there's nothing amateurish about that work, it has all the hallmarks of being "pro".

That's some seriously good work! As good as anything I've seen running at the yearly train show at the Big E in Springfield, Massachusetts (that's one hell of a big show, for you non-Yanks!).

I have a friend who bought an airbrush and compressor to weather a TON or rolling stock he's collected FOREVER. Never sprayed a lick out of it. His trains are boxed up because he "never found the right modular system to build on (yet scoffed at my felt on folding camp table layout that I ran trains on for a long time and had a ball!!!)

I've recently gotten into airbrushing and plan to weather some of my stock at some point....having too much fun with model kits, though, so the stock will wait a bit longer :silly:
