I love it, especially the corrosion look. I am curious about the paint job.

Corrosion of plastic - some of the flatter parts is just a 5 thou layer of plastic card  distressed with a knife blade plenty of pocking and scraping then finish of with some 400grit wet & dry sheets then glue to the side /flat panels stippling the adhesive  to create metal laminating - the more solid panels is just lightly bounce a ball end tool over it using a Dremell type drill on a slow speed - some of it needs going over again to get it more in clusters rather than just isolated dents the undercoat of rust colour will show this up so A few more minutes work is required.

first rust undercoat and it shows some un-natrule "dings and scraps" especially were you can see 3 or 4 "dings " in a row so its back to attack with the dremel ball and a bit more sanding to thin the rust layer down then a bit more rust undercoat

the middle top pipe into the boiler needs a bit more texture to simulate rust and bits of asbestos lagging

A Few shots - I think the amount of corrosion / rust is to heavy and the whole engine needs burying/covering in years more of junk
still I might get it right one day !!!

One small nit to pick: it seems like the heavily corroded areas are almost the same color as the rest. Perhaps a bit more rust color would be appropriate in those areas?
