David, thanks for your positive comments!

This was something new I tried.
I knew that I needed to paint a lot of these castings to look rusty, and I didn't want to spend a lot of time making them look that way.
So this is what I came up with, I made a little presentation just for you.
Using the backsides of the engine wheels, that I didn't bother rusting up.
So I spray paint the castings with flat black first.





Then using these 2 paints "Floquils" Rust (I know they don't make this brand anymore) however I think you could replace it with something similar.
Just dab it on with a brush, not covering the whole surface, leaving some of the black still showing.
Now once that has dried, I do the same thing using this product from "AMMO MIG" streaking rust effects.





First the rust.




After the rust has dried, I dab on the rust streaking effects.
Try not to have too much paint on the brush, sometimes I dab it on a paper towel first to remove some of the paint.





This is how it looks when finished.





It's a quick & easy process!

Greg

David, George, not to hijack Greg's great thread,
I posted how I rusted some straw "pipes" using plain old craft acrylics here:

Greg,

I am still following your build, and the rusting method is a good one to follow. The little sheds you make would not intimidate a new modeler to try something similar either. After all, large or small, a model is still a model, no matter how big or small.

David, George, Bill & Rich, thanks for your posts and comments!

Bill, no worries about hijacking, always good to have other modelers ways of doing things.

Nice work Greg. Those parts look suitably decrepit.
Mig seem to be the go to these days for weathering paints, although I haven't used them myself.



Regards Rob

My current build.
