Default A couple of weathered locos - HO scale

I've been having fun weathering a few things using brushed acrylics. I don't have an airbrush.

Walthers Proto1000 Maine Central RS2. I hope to get some grabs for it soon.


LifeLike Proto 2000 Boston and Maine S3


Atlas Guilford Rail U23B with Atlas gondola. Scrap metal is painted aluminium foil and bits of plastic.


LifeLike Proto2000 Boston and Maine S1

very nice... when your modelling in large scales i'm not sure that an airbrush is really necessary for weathering.

Thanks for viewing and for the comments. I too like the old B&M red black and white. While I wanted the workhorse look I didn't want to lose too much of the colour.
