Heavy weathered loco roofs
#1
I tried to get some heavy weathered loco roofs.The prototype has a real crust of dirt collected over time. Specially the harvest gold loco looked like a toy from the eagles view.
The paint is a diluted mix of brown and black. A butt brush was used applying the paint with dab motions.

That looks good. I like old rusty looking weathering.

Reinhard, a very good and realistic addition.
But I would like to continue this weathering at all walkways around the motor heads, fronts and steps, my idea. Maybe not too intensely, however, a little bit.
Cheers, Bernd

Good eyes Wink I did the sides of the black frame but I did not do the walkways yet. They are shiny black on the birds view. That is easy to change

Funny thing is that it looks quite different from 1 yard distance at 30°. That is what I see usually during operations sessions (playing :o )

ps. This photo demonstrates the limits of the digital zoom of the iPhone. The Canon IXUS with an optical zoom would have produced a much better photo.

Remember, where there is a lot of walking on the walkways the high spots will show silver metal, that would be the walkways on the cab door sides. The nose stairs get more walking as a rule then the rear steps, and the rear step on the engineer side has a little more wear too.
