Thanks, guys, for your comments. I hadn't thought about "modeling in 4D" but I like that concept!

Rich, I was wrong about Dead Flat being a Krylon product. It actually a Rust-Oleum product in a spray can I found at Lowe's. Here's a picture of the can. Just be careful to do a light spray on the model. While these Rust-Oleum sprayers are convenient, they can put too much product on quickly.

Very nice weathering. Looks nice and dirty and not loved. Just like a diesel should.

Jim, I've had the same problem with Rustoleum spray cans that have a wider nozzle like this style. Some of them spit and spray blotches of paint even after gently heated in warm water. Some continue to spray paint when the can is upside down and I'm trying to clear the nozzle after painting.

I hadn't tried any of the cans with the handle/nozzle design you posted.Sounds like they put out a thick spray too.

Here is an O scale Shapeways dumpster that Dave ordered. The finish on this particular piece is a little course, but several coats of acrylic paint, some printed signage based on prototype photos (also shown here), pan pastels, and some experimentation with a coffee grinder with a combination of plastic trash bag material, ground cardboard, some broken boards, and ground plastic from a piece Dave melted on the vacuform helped it look more like the real thing. I found the Ohio Valley Waste Service sign and decided to use that vs. BFI given the locale and the 70s era. Too much fun!

Guys there is a simple fix for this. I emailed Rust-Oleum and complained about the nozzles and a very nice lady sent me a dozen new nozzles.

Let the junk begin. This is a baby step towards a junk yard full.

If we had that sign at every station my trains would be almost empty on the weekends.

As you think, so will you be.
