      I needed a bit of a break from trains, so I got a 1/35 scale Kubelwagen. Since I model 19th century railroading, I don't do much rust and worn metal, so this was a chance to play with rust effects.

      I find building a kit in another scale to be very refreshing.

              This is a weathering piece that I commissioned in 2019. I hadn’t weathered any trains since 1976 and felt I wanted a master piece and something to learn from and strive to achieve. Rob Arsenault of weathermytrains was the artist who created the piece. The Gp40-2w is a locomotive I think is great looking and they did run on the Valley Sub in Wisconsin when the CN borg took over from the great Wisconsin Central.

                Some of my more recent work. Weathering started for me after Christmas of 2019. I started on my pulpwood cars as I had a few and could and did practice different techniques.

                Mostly I am working with Pan Pastels and Testors dull cote. Occasionally I use my Vallejo Air paints but brushed on.

                The latest batch weathered is 3 gondolas and the loads they carry

                        Verdigris on copper roofing.



                        Here is a link to my YouTube video on how to add verdigris. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXBVt2dUyj0&t=5s

                          I can see the video. I also see two blue question marks. Figured there were pictures too.

                          Super impressed with your build Rick. So much detail, and beautifully done.
                          The green and red on the equipment and other colours such as the silver pipes draws the eye in, but is suitably muted, so looks very natural.
                          Is all this from Sierra West ?
                          Regards Rob

                            Rob, thank you very much for the nice words.
                            The machines and the darker low cabinet along the wall are SierraWest.
                            Everything else is scratch built.

                          I am re-entering the hobby after a lifetime.

                          I was a scratch builder in Jr. and Sr. HS in the 60s, building what I could on a chicken-scratch budget then. Now I am re-turning to my roots and enjoying doing as much as I can just as I used to do... Frugality of necessity is still a factor, but my allowance has increased a little bit....

                          I feel like a beginner after so long. The amazing difference between the 60s and now is my access to modeling information. I have transpired from hand-me-down magazines from my cousins to the WholeWideWonder of the WorldWideWabbit hole, and thanks to this site and many others down that wabbit hole, I have spent way too much time lurking, and not enough doing.

                          However, I do want to contribute some of my initial re-entry exercises, so other re-entrants and beginners can maybe see it's not all mystery, but doing and practice.

                          Recognition, thanks, and kudos to Chuck Doan for the weathering technique I have used on these wood examples..

                          I want to model in On30 scale/gauge, here are some of my practice experiments with coffee stir sticks, which btw, are excellent scratch building material for O gauge. Pencil lead is .o7 for reference.

                          Off-topic somewhat, but the last photo is of some old-growth redwood I milled from a salvaged torn-down privacy fence, the fence was installed in the early 70s. I intend to use it for some "newly constructed" structures, sort of a shame to weather something this nice, imho. .. If anyone is interested how I milled it down safely on a contractor's 12" table saw, I can post on a different thread. I have milled down to 1/16" by 1/8" with my jig.

                            Almostretired (me too and wish we knew your real name), thanks for joining in.
                            I know I've tried some of Chucks techniques and haven't been able to get it 100% right.
                            But it looks like you've done a very good job of recreating his look.
                            Look forward to more of your posts and work.
