    Afternoon, Troy- I normally use more airbrush paint then the powers. This time I did the opposite but need to blend more with the airbrush. McLeod- A lot of the older hoppers have gone to hauling phosphate so the get pretty weathered and rusty. I believe it's their last duty before the scrap...

    Curt- the latest hoppers I'm doing were give to me by a friend. They were the first generation Genesis 5161 hoppers.
