WEATHERING HOW-TO: Wall Signs

Getting that Old Weathered look for your Posters & Wall Signs


When you want to add some old signs or posters to the walls of your buildings, are you satisfied with using pre-manufactured signs or even some that you may have printed out with your printer?
Are you satisfied with just cut and paste giving your signs or poster a scale thickness of about 2.5 to 3 inches thick? Thatís in HO imagine how out of scale it would be in N scale.

If you answered yes to either of these questions then donít read any further.

I realize that a lot of the building kits we get nowadays have signs included but most of us have printers that have built in scanners and if not you probably know someone who does. So scan the kit signs to a digital image.

If you want get better looking signs and posters, read on.

In the following pages Iím going to show you how simple it is and how realistic the results will be. If youíre like me you have been saving signs and posters for your models for a while, so you should have a nice selection of signs. Below are the signs I chose for this tutorial.
