  1. Here is a project I just finished a couple nights ago. I haven't posted in forever here but if I am not surfing the web I get models built!! HA Enjoy, car is pretty much ootb but I added cut levers and weathered. Enjoy,Steve

    Here is the prototype amazingly a friend took this in April of this year!!! Hard to believe its condition.

    Steve, why don't you describe your techniques? It would help some of us to understand how to get such good results.

    OK .. I have to ask. Are the last two pictures real? or a model?
    If they are a model ... wow - nicely done!

  4. Sherrel, thank you very much. I just got lucky they day I shot these. It was about 2pm and the sun was high so the shadows look convincing. Usually I take pretty crappy photos.(n)

    Keith I don't mind at all. Do you want me to add it here or a separate thread?

    Thanks guys,Steve

    If you would like, start a separate thread entitled Model Railcar Weathering Techniques in the Modeling the Frisco, General, forum.
