Looks amazing, nice work!

Wow. That's fantastic! I had never even heard of that trick. And I thought I had seen almost everything!

Thanks guys.  But I didn't come up with it.
I did a search on "Weathering Buildings" and a video popped up of guy talking about using the pencils on a water tank.
It didn't look that tough.  Someone else told me that the water colors may wind up being too transparent to be of any use, but that's kind of what I was after.
Subtle yet evidence of time and weather.

There was another video that showed a guy using these on a wooden boxcar to fade and shade it.

May I ask what static grass was used?  Especially length(s)?  I like it. 8)

Thanks Mark.



In the triangular patch just in front of the 33K tank car I used Silflor 4mm Summer and 6.5mm Late Summer.  I'm trying to model Spring but it looked a little too lush green for my eyes.
So I picked up some WS 7mm Medium Green and added a pinch of WS 4mm Straw to give it some yellow and added it to the Silflor mix and used this mix on the rest of the areas.
I still want to add some WS foliage in areas to break up the overall evenness of color and depth in the field.

I took a break from scenery work recently, cleaned the tracks and shot a new video while I had a train running.
Also gave me a chance to play with the new editing software.


"The morning forecast told of more stormy weather headed my way around noonish, so I grabbed my gear and jumped in the truck hoping I could catch up with #773 before the floods came again. Shortly after grabbing my morning foamer snacks at the local Quicky Mart, I heard'em calling out track warrants for work in Haskell! Just as I got set up I seen a headlight peaking around the curve as they reached the North end of Haskell siding, perfect timing.
Todays power consisted of three old Warhorses: two GP18's - #1351 & #1346 and F7 #120
."



Here's the blog post...

Here's a second video I made over the weekend.
The first one shown the SB #773 working the Riceland elevator in Haskell, this next one shows the NB #774 working Gavilon Fertilizers in Haskell and interchanging a few cars for the W&OV in Malvern.

What's the background music on the second video, in particular the first song?

Nice video.

It's called "She's Gone"  but I have no idea who made it.  I got it off of YouTube music.

This afternoon I caught the SB Winnfield local picking up a few bad orders that train #35 left on a siding in Haskell, AR. the previous night.








I finally got a chance to play around with some SuperTrees this weekend.

That looks like about 50 tweezers worth of trees.
