It has been a while since I posted something about progress on the Gmhs 53 boxcar. Well it's almost finished now after a lot of filters, oil shading , grime, streaks and dust.Still need some grease on the axle bearing pods and a bit of rust on the suspension but for the rest I'm pretty satisfied with the result, dirty and dusty but not rotten.

Beautiful, Martin. You did a fantastic job of capturing the look of a dirty worn boxcar.

Sometimes I got the question asked do you work on commission after they see my work at shows. Well shure I do ! This time someone came to me at the expo at Leuven Belgium with a bright yellow boxcar for bananas. Sometimes I wonder if the manufacturers of rolling stock know anything about scale and color. Boy this car was bright, so bright yellow it almost hurt the eye. This made it a real challenge for me, tone it down a little with a couple of fades using the Ammo transparator medium for the first time. Couple of drops of white, bit yellow and a lot of transparator and thinner shaked well in a dropper bottle before spraying it on the car. After letting it dry for a day and a next coat with a satin varnish I put it away for a week to determine wat I would use on this car. Well decided to go with a wash for DAK, a bit brownish color for the pinwashes, wich let pop out the detail nicely. After that some streaking grime and a light spray of tracks primer on the undercarriage before I hit it with several pigments. Couple of rust tones to the springs and wheels set with streaking rust softened with odourless thinner, metal pigment on the buffers. Grease added to the bearing pods and puffers. Black and metal pigment combined with grease gives a nice result for the thick grease on the puffers in the real world. Pigments for dust on the undercarriage set with odourless thinner with the airbrush, manipulated with a brush and finally set with pigment fixer..

Got a lot of questions asked lately about filters. What are they and what do they do. Well, filters are very thin paints, 10% paint and 90% dilutant and they change the overall color of the paintjob and unify the several dots and spots painted on the model. I did try to capture it in pictures. Did one side of this boxcar with 2 layers of filters, one with a blue green color and one with a light brown ochre color applied in 2 thin coats with a drying time of 24 hour inbetween.

with filters.



without..



with filters..



without..



as you can see the filters change the overall appearance of the car and blend all the painted chips more together and soften its look. Choose for a second filter to gave it a more overall dusty apperance..

Hi Martin, wow, the filters really appear to do the trick of natural looking real weathering.
What kind of paints are you using? and how do you measure out the percentages of paint and dilution
liquid? When did you discover the filter method'..this is the first I've heard of it'..
