Very nice indeed, a real realistic looking weathering. Now if I could only get enough nerve to do something similar :D



Nice job on the weathering. That colour really highlights the details.

I don't mean to be nit-picky, but I think you have the sideframes on wrong. In your second picture, the ladder attached to the truck side frame should be on the front trucks, not the rear.

Well Fred, he probably corrected it a couple years ago since the original post is from Sept. 05.....


Lets hope so. Or those crew guys are really tall!

Maybe I'll have to start looking at the date of the original post eh?
