    Looking better. Sorry for my typos but there is no editing function to fix them.

    I used oils first and then used chalks to cover up my mistakes. I'm just not getting it with this oil based paint for rust. I will try 2-3 more times and then just take a break on that technique. Will hopefully locate my Tom Mann book around this place somewhere. Stock Micro Trains car.

    Candy: I just read this again. I get it now about fading or light weathering before adding more deep weathering. I am still working on the oil weathering and I do like it better.

    Lots of nice stuff in this thread, thought I'd add my contribution as seem lacking hoppers...

    Simply airbrushed with a bit of powder to finish off.

    Hope you like!

    Adding repaint and renumbering. It's well worn, no doubt. Perhaps it will hold together for a little longer.

    These boxcars are really weathered, but do you notice something? No rust areas , or very little, is visible. The red color has faded and black seems to be the important weathering color
