I had a go at making some doors, I know they are not brilliant, But a blind man on a galloping horse would not notice?

Do you have engines or rolling stock that you would like to have weathered to the 'extreme', contact us! This experiement was done with just a scrap piece of track I ahd laying around, I'm not going anywhere near the layout with this at this point!  I'm having a heckuva time trying to get my trackwork bulletproof Ii've dropped more feeders than I ever thought possible) but I'm still getting herky-jerky locomotives at times.
I like to also take a time-consuming but rewarding step I first saw in a Bill Darnaby article on laying flextrack in the November 1997 Model Railroader.
I'm at a point now that I have power fed to every single piece of flex track (in other words, there is no place that a rail joiner needs to provide power to another rail) and every turnout has power fed to each continuous rail in the turnout. ShareThisI'm using Micro Engineering Code 83 track and want to weather the ties with some different colors. The company setout track and industry spur above received some initial weathering before ballast, then some more dry-brushing after to blend the ties with the dirt. On July 12, 2014 By Justin Here’s another brilliant video from Richard at Everard Junction.

On July 5, 2013 By Justin Our resident weathering expert Trev Hurley takes us through the final steps of weathering and detailing a loco… Applying the paint! On March 16, 2013 By Justin Maurice has kindly given us permission to showcase some of the photos of his layout that I found on Facebook yesterday. On March 14, 2013 By Justin Welcome to the first in a new series of how to a new series of articles by weathering guru Trev Hurley from Weathering Services & Detailing.
On September 19, 2012 By Graeme Chase Another new addition to the growing Model Railways Scenery range of downloadable 4mm kits is the Rural Halt with Platform and Kiosk. About UsAt Model Trains Online it's our job to help you get the very best from the worlds greatest hobby, serving railway modellers like yourself in over 102 countries worldwide! Whether you're new to the world of railway modelling, or your's a seasoned collector and scratch-builder, we hope you'll find our site useful, informative, fun and educational. I was fortunate to recently acquire an entire duplicate kit of the Hornby R418 "Dunster Station" which is used as the basis for Treheligan station. Then take the tiniest amount of matt black paint as seen on the very tip of the brush, and almost wash it off in the thinners.
Taking the brush, and patting it half-dry on a tissue if it is still dripping, very lightly draw it down over the white paint and allow the dirty liquid to run where it wants. If necessary you can dab the piece with the tissue after application as well but again only the lightest of touches is needed.

Well yesterday and today I finally bit the bullet and tried my hand at weathering a piece of rolling stock.
One the Dullcote had dried I started with the roof, first off was a good coat of grey model wash. I then dried these series of washes with a hair dryer, then it was a coat of rust coloured wash, and finally a black wash to highlight the seam and details. Next was to move onto the sides & ends of the boxcar, I used a similar principle for the sides as what I had used on the roof. Then once this had almost dry using a fine flat brush the same width of the panels, I soaked the brush in water and thinned out the remaining wash and blended any pools of wash so that they looked like downward streaks from rain. I then dried this whole step with a hair dryer making sure not to disturb any of the wash that was sitting in the door tracks or areas that need to be highlighted.
Lastly I went over the areas that needed highlighting and extra dirt & grime with a thinned wash of black. The trucks were painted with PS Grimy Black and then dusted with AIM Dark Rust & Black weathering powders.
Next stage will be to weather the finer details (rust, more grime, and highlights) with oil paints using dry brushing. I wondered when you were finally going to take the leap and start weathering your rolling stock. You're off to a great start, Jas, The roof looks really nice- a great combination of colors and textures. As for the oils, don't forget what Tom Johnson posted about spraying them with Dullcote in order to get them to dry faster. Always keep the basic idea of working from light to dark, no matter which preferable mediums you elect to weather with.
What was you preferred method and what did you use, paints, powders, brush, airbrush ?
This involves snipping the connections between ties on the underside of the track, cutting away and removing some ties, and then re-spacing the remaining ties with some slight variation. I haven't yet tried it on any huge sections of layout, so I'm not sure if I'll have the patience to carry it through. I add spills from the train and rust from the rails after ballast on gas it gets stained from all the use.
In this video, he walks us through the step by step process of creating a realistic cutting or embankment for your layout using a plaster, paint & some static grass to create a realistic cutting with an exposed rock face. Brand new track on your layout may look lovely and clean, but it certainly won’t look realistic. If you missed any of the previous instalments you can find them in our Weathering Guides section here.

Maurice has put in many many hours to create this delightfully detailed early Diesel era layout using predominantly Metcalfe OO Scale kits for the buildings and architecture. In this first article, Trev is going to walk us through the very basics of this rather in-demand subject… Hope you like it! Before reviewing the kit, let me bore you with why you should try this approach to kit building. We regularly tackle a wide range of railway modelling topics, from baseboard construction to landscaping, track laying to wiring. Rick's technique has been used on a station canopy but of course it is only an example and can be used to advantage on many other items. There is much more of a forgiveness when you work from light to dark should corrections need to be made. Once I rip everything out, (ugggh!) and redo it, I know I will have better electrical continuity. Clever use of weathering and plenty of vehicles and figures also help to really bring his layout to life. Please feel free to post your questions and comments in the form at the bottom of the article and Trev will do his best to help you out! Downloadable templates exploit the strengths of modern inkjet printers and papers and allow us to use everyday materials found around the home or den to create limitless varieties of basic structures, use different finishes i.e. If you'd like us to cover a particular topic, just drop us a line and let us know through the contact us page.
This was followed by several coats of Dullcote to flatten the plastic sheen, and give the boxcar some tooth for the washes and oils. Heavy, dark colors applied immediately can lead to terminal results that most times, cannot be restored. For cleaning track (if you find that it's a constant battle for you), I suggest what Dave Ramos and I use, which is a combination of Centerline's track cleaning roller car, and one of the Walther's Train line old-school pad-under-boxcar cars. Works good for us, but there are so many other cars out there that work as well, or maybe even better.
I gave the track and turnouts light coats with the points thrown to protect the far side of the stock rails when painting.
I use Peco turnouts and even though I solder feeders to the point rails, I still wanted to make sure that the contacts could connect properly, at least until they wear out. It took a long time to clean to track in the areas that were going to connect to my feeders, but the effort was worth it in the end.
