I liked the colors on the prototype, so I made this with the same techniques as usual:

The "painted out" areas are a nice touch.  What are you using for lighting?  Your pics are always evenly lit with no shadows.

Thanks...

...I'm using a 20"x20"x20" light tent with two 60W 5000K lights placed about 15" away.  The tent diffuses the lighting.

Those Genesis boxcars are sweet (sigh)
I really like the roof. How did you do it?

I've been buying up the Genesis Boxcar for $16 each.  Gotta love HO Scale ;D

The roof is a light misting of Krylon rusty metal primer.  It looks like I also dabbed some SophFin on there too.

Tom-Nice car! A lot of those CUOH cars rust in a wonderful way-I just wish more of
the "rusty" ones would park up at the OC/NS interchange where I go to look for
prototype pics here in town. In the last year in a half or so the majority of the ones
there have been too new looking-mainly tagged. The thing that's kept me from doing
one of these is the fact the Genesis car has the incorrect ends for the CUOH Seico
cars. I "may" do some kitbashing to the one I have sitting neglected. Who knows-I
need to get going & get some cars done. No offense to your car which is great, I
just like to replicate "actual" cars the best I can.

If you do any more, check out my rrpicturearchive site for reference-there's a few
rusty ones on there. Hopefully this year I'll be able to catch a few more.
