Default CP Rail caboose

Just finished this caboose yesterday....It is done using acrylic paint....Neutral gray mixed with water for the first coat (takes away the shine) then dry brushing with black, some Mississippi Mud (brown), and Rust Red.

Very well done. I love those cabooses. Are those trucks original with the kit?

Well done, Gary. You did a great job on the weathering. I'm, jealous, but the era is a bit to early for me.

Very nice, the 'dust' of the initial spray seems to have settled in all the right places. I have recently weathered an On30 loco but forgot to clean the windows at the time and had a heck of a job getting the paint off them once it had dried, did you add the glazing after weathering?

Thanks Bob....I didn't use any spray....My first coat was a mix of water and paint (very runny).....I applied it with a brush, allowing it to get into all the tight places, then before it had a chance to dry I used a Q-tip swab to spread it around evenly and absorb excess liquid...Then I allowed it to dry before dry brushing....I also used a Q-tip to clean the windows before the paint had a chance to dry....The Q-tip still leaves a little residue on the window, which in my opinion gives the appearance that the glass has been there for quite some time....No glazing was added.
