Here below are photos of the current weathering project I’m doing for a friend. This is a new Scale Trains PS 4785 covered hopper, ex PC, ex CR, now RFMX. I was trying to come close to replicating the prototype shown below:
Hopefully, I came pretty close. You’ll certainly need to enlarge the prototype photo to see the full details. I just finished the car this afternoon, and will apply a final seal tomorrow. On my photos, please also enlarge to see all the grime!
On this car, I used Pan Pastels, a brown wash, rust texture by Vallejo, and multiple colors of Vallejo paint, plus some TruColor PC green. I think the car turned out very well, and will be a standout model on my friend’s layout. Photos below:
