    Thank you all for your kind comments! It seems there are as many different ways to weather our trains as there are modelers...

    Here's the next installment, tips on creating a rusty boxcar:



    Once the finishing touches are installed on this car, it will be hauling soapstone on Mark Chase's beautiful layout. See the clinic here: http://members.cox.net/glniner/weathering2.htm

    Verne- thanks for the link and doing a tutorial; your stuff looks VERY realistic. I love this look; probably sign my name differently if Les hadn't already taken the phrase he uses!

    I do quite a few diecast vehicles to sell at swapmeet and eBay; I've fallen in love with "Rustall". It also works well, especially on black/brown shades. Gives a variety of rust shades & fading, and if you don't like the outcome you can simply wipe it off with alcohol or even water. You do need that brand of sealer, though, a Dullcote spray tends to dilute the effect.

    I really like your technique, though- I'll be experimenting; thanks !!

    Thanks for the links, Verne and Louis. I was able to locate a scottish store that sells pegasus cacti, and I bought a punch to try Harold's method. It cuts clover leaves, which gives me three hearts, that is six cactus ears per cut (in fact it will probably give less since the punch is not very powerful and I could laminate ears for more thickness).
