A few shots from this afternoon. I've recently started using oil paints for weathering and used the old Atlas box car as a test piece, overall I'm very happy with the long working time and controllability of the oils. The roof was finished with powders and everything sealed in dullcote, I might go back and add some underframe dirt at a later date.

Agree,
weathering the subtle approach is a great enhancement toward realism, keeping the 'old' car viable  :D

Thank you both  :)

While on a winning streak I decided to upgrade to some Roundhouse boxcar kits to fine tune the techniques.


First the model was given a clean in hot soapy water and mounted on a stand to reduce handing of the model.


Next a few tiny dots of neat red and orange oil paint was applied directly to the model. These were then brushed out smoothly into a film/filter to give various to the stark yellow of the original model.


Once the first layer of oil paints had dried a pin wash of heavily diluted brown oil was added around the raised detail, before it fully dried this was buffed and faded out with a dry brush.


Finally a coat of Dullcote was applied and rust chipping added with a fine tip brush and acrylic paints. The trucks were treated to some weathering powders and sealed with Dullcote.

Cool- almost too subtle but using the large graphic I see it. I don't use oils but have some powders so may well give it a go following your methods... *bigTHUMBSup*  :lol:
