As seen in the photo above, some weathering projects have been in progress recently. I currently have seven cars to weather. After changing out the wheel sets and adding Kadee couplers, I then add ACI plates from BLMA before weathering.
A few of these cars, as the Wabash car above, will be done using Pan Pastels plus decals from Weathering Solutions. They produce a full line of rust streaks, scratches, spots, oil drips and spots, roof rust, graffiti, and lime deposits. The rest of the cars will be done with oils and pan pastels.
