“Alastair … I actually have two pretty decent things to pass along:
I have found that using bark or weathered or drift wood for making rocky hills looks really good.
And, when using sculptamold (or similar) for terrain, tint it with brown, grey or green paint before installing. That will prevent the white specks you get when trying to paint afterwards.
how are you, my name is Christopher, and it’s nice to meet you.
I want to thank you for your emails, and I enjoy looking at your model railroad layout plans.
I just completed my first N scale train set, and I would like to expand on it someday.
Back in the 1980,s it was HO, now it’s N scale. I made a layout that you might not see everyday that I believe is creative, and somewhat artistic.
Please let me know if this N scale train set with an Egyptian layout looks good to you.
The size of it is 4 feet by 6 & ½ feet. Most of it is Bachmann, but someday I would like to have a Kato Set because Kato has my favorite train in N scale the Southern Pacific Daylight Freedom Train # 4449.
Please feel free to send me more of you emails, you have yourself an excellent day, take it easy, and peace out from Christopher”
Here is a photo of my steam lorry after I weathered it, using washes of thin black , gey and brown paint . and weathering powder.
And seeing as weathering is such a hot topic with you lot at the moment (thanks to Jim for that), I thought I’d have a look through the archives, and came out with these two:
Actually, these two are from a long list of weathering posts. I’ll share some more with you soon, or you could just take the plunge with the Beginner’s Guide.
