Ya know, a little black and brown paint, some powders, and that K ain't a half-bad lookin' loco...  Grin



In all seriousness, this is a weathering job I did for a friend. It's mostly a wash of dilute black and brown paint, then some Bragdon powders here and there for the look of dust and soot.



If you're painting Bachmann's valve gear, you owe it to yourself to get a jar of Badger's Accuflex Dull Coat. This isn't the spray stuff, this comes in a little jar, goes on kinda milky-white, and dries to a dead flat finish. It does a GREAT job of toning down the bright shiny metal of the valve gear. You can then weather it with powders, washes, or whatever. It appears to be quite durable on the metal. At the very least, if it flakes off, it's easy to reapply, unlike paint that's been weathered, etc.



The paper window shades had to go. I replaced them with cloth first aid tape.



Here's #453 with my TRR #10.

Beautiful work, Kevin.  Looks like she's ready to take Train 461 to Silverton.

Awesome work, Kevin!

This Mudhen has come to life much more than ever before.
There is no longer any plastic look on this beauty. Looks much more like Steel and Iron...

Great work! Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley
Cheers, Tom
