Default wheathered freight, what do you think ?

Hi,

I've tried some pastel chalk on two cars, below the results. What do you think of it ?

It's my first try, I really could use some piece of advice .

Really fine work, congratulations. The only flaw I can see is probably due to touching the model with bare hands after weathering, as some of the original carcass colour show through. I suggest to use vinyl gloves for handling, since spraying the model with lacquer may dim dramatically (see my post: http://www.all-model-railroading.co....ead.php?t=7316) the weathering effect. Other than this, very cool effect

Thanks for your warm welcome, guys .

hpept, the type of chalk I'm using (I've bought it in a local store in Bucharest) it's actually steady enough on the model. Handling the model does not disturb the chalk at all. There were areas where I hated the way the chalk looked, so I had it removed with a wet piece of cloth (planning to add it later back). That's why the original body color in some spots .

I've attached a picture with the chalk I'm using. Guys, what products are you using for weathering ?
