Weathering Modern Rolling Stock
#1
Hello,

as i wrote in another thread, i have purchased some modern cars for Fremo operations. Taking advantages of sales and reduced prices at least i get a colourful mix of modern cars. And when you are accustomed to the dark colours of elder eras, the modern era cars are comparatively very colourful.
Something has to happen to these bright shiny cars. In real this is the work of Jürgen who has specialized to this art of work. In return i reworked some of his locos and turned them into runners like a dream.

Let' start with a blue one. CSX and clean cars are two different universes. So Jürgen occupied my workshop, locked me out and began exercising his vodoo.

That was the result.

We were astonished, these white gons were relatively clean. We have looked to nearly hundred photos of the prototype.

O.K. thank you for the laurel, but all the credit is due to Jürgen (aka Speziguzi) and his skills.

Baby blue became dirty. I like this not so heavy weathered look. These gon is is still rather new and in use. There some dirt and wear is uninvetable, but not so heavy as it will be the case 30 years in the future shortly before meeting the scrappers torch.
