Hello again fans of weathering. After being gone the last few weeks I did get back to the painting bench. I finished and shipped off the final 7 pulp cars.
TomOn Facebook, I'm not on but my wife is. Is it a forum. I've heard of people selling but could never find pics of anything else.
Yes, so trueTom. Hobbies are supposed to be fun.It's good to see different ways of weathering, but I don't need my way or the highway type of people either.
Yep that's how it is with me. I've learned a lot watching videos one guy that is good is Dans railroad 2011. I don't do the graffiti but a lot of his techniques that don't use an airbrush are helpful. There's never one good way to do stuff but many ideas from different guys is good to learn.Ithink I can tell in the 1st couple minutes if they will be helpful.
I don’t have Facebook kinda glad I don’t. I’m glad we’re a good group here none of that goes on here that I know of. Seems we build each other up that’s why I like it here.Tom
I visit 2 sites on Facebook that are for weathering only. I am part of:
Weathered Trains Only Buy and Sell——about 1700 members, nice place to buy and sell but no discussions on how to’s. Some of the guys especially those that do Auto Racks with graffiti think their stuff is gold, IMO
I just joined
Detailing Tips & weathering Tricks for Model Railroaders
not sure about this group under 1000 members and seems kind of atta boy place. I look for honest constructive criticism and the tips and tricks are sort of lacking. I am hoping it will grow.
I did drop another group before we left for vacation and for the life of me I can’t remember the group name or find doing a FB search. Very strictly controlled by a guy who didn’t believe his works should be criticize.
Tom. I’ve been building Millitary Models and weathering them not for about 8 years now but never weathered Rolling stock. The Millitary guys are very helpful but you better have your ducks in a row when you get into there league that’s what I’ve found out there not Bashful about criticizing your work but it’s good criticism to help you be a better Model Builder. I was always nervous about doing winter camouflage here’s a Sherman tank I done last winter in 1/72 Scale.Yes, so trueTom. Hobbies are supposed to be fun.
I have been looking at You Tube videos on weathering. The military modeler guys are very good and the ones I have been watching are very good in demonstrating and explaining the processes. I know Greg has been emailing me videos of guys he finds on You Tube. We seem to have the same GREAT taste in modelers there.
Doing searching on You tube is easy, like I typed in: how to weather a gondola. Received back a list of videos and some were excellent some were crap. Ithink I can tell in the 1st couple minutes if they will be helpful.
Lee, beautiful models.
Totally agree with you TomYep that's how it is with me. I've learned a lot watching videos one guy that is good is Dans railroad 2011. I don't do the graffiti but a lot of his techniques that don't use an airbrush are helpful. There's never one good way to do stuff but many ideas from different guys is good to learn.
Thanks Tom. I’ll have to check them out you can never stop learning how to weather. Thanks for sharing thatLee, beautiful models.
My favorite You Tube guys are in order:
Panzermeister36 ——-mainly a military modeler but once or twice a year weathers a piece of rolling stock, explains very well and his military stuff is awesome
Seaboard Central, Tim Garland is a professional locomotive engineer. His videos cover everything in model railroading and he has just a few weathering videos. Explains very well, does beautiful videos and had a great layout. He moved so is building a new layout
there are a few others but I do not subscribe to them
Those look good Tom. The load sets it off perfectHello again fans of weathering. After being gone the last few weeks I did get back to the painting bench. I finished and shipped off the final 7 pulp cars.
