Default Roundhouse Klemme Coop Grain 54' Covered Hopper

Just finished this one off. Its a Roundhouse Klemme Coop Grain 54' Covered Hopper. It was a bright pink before i started. Again, a light coat of gray primer was added. I ran out of KADEE #5 couplers so i need to order more lol, so this one got weathered without the couplers for now. I used all 4 powder colors again, they combine so nicely and give nice looking rust and "soot" colors. The ends of this car dont look the greatest, its hard to get into them with the brush, so i need to get a smaller brush and go back and touch up a few areas on the ends when i get a smaller brush.

I forgot to take a before picture of the car just out of the box, but i did member to take a picture of the car after i sprayed it with a mist of gray primer. Ill have to member to take a before before picture next time lol

Before with cheap gray primer misted on:






And after with the entire car weathered, including the underside and roof:

Default Athearn RTR 50' Toledo, Peoria, & Western FMC Boxcar

This is th latest one to roll off the workbench with a new weathered look. A Athearn RTR 50' Toledo, Peoria, & Western FMC Boxcar.

This one, like the ones before, got a light coat of gray primer mist before the powders were applied. i also like the others used a combination of all 4 powder colors for this one. Since the car was already orange, the rust doesnt how up all that well on the car, so this car is mostly just dirty with dirt and soot. The trucks were weathered, as well as the couplers, ends, and underside. Also the roof was done with all four colors of powders to give a rusty and dirty look

Here is the car before i did anything to it, straight out of the box:






And here it is with a light mist of gray primer:




And here is the finished car with the powders applied:
