I have to repaint the boiler and do that yet.  this was simply a test fit and run of the kitbash.

I'm not sure I really ever "painted" one of your domes. I think I just started weathering over them and they happened to get completely covered LOL.

Ha.  AI just want to paint the entire boiler to match the tender.  Tender is DGLE and the boiler is black.  I figured weathering would be better if both started off as the same color.

Don't even waste your time. It probably won't. Tenders weathered differently anyways.


Well, it's not a waste of time if it scratches an itch for you. I just don't think it will make a difference.
I wouldn't do it.
