Hold on a minute, no where did you mention baking it,

Your like the Crime Writers who introduce the murderer on the last page and you then go back thro' the previous 300 odd pages to find this character has never even been mentioned!

Anyway it's in the oven now and I am off to work so will check it tonight .


Edit:

Ran out of turps , had some white spirit that I used to clean my creosote brushes so used that to glaze the top before poping it the oven ........ Going to guess I should let it cool before the dry brushing ?

The whole process is half-baked....so the baking was implied and foreshadowed all along. I can't help it if you can't read between the lines.

Might post this new technique over in some of the other forums just to see if someone else will give it a go as the latest all purpose weathering process.  Is it low temp in the oven, or put it in at full whack? Smiley

Just hot enough that it takes a second or so after you grab the oven rack, to realize you have just fused your skin to the metal.

Marc, this is mind blowing. Very well done. I've seen some locos in the mid 80ies that looked exactly that way. I don't see space for improvement.

There's only one thing, that came to my mind, and I don't want to call it "missing": Maybe you could add some curved stains of a swinging key ring or something. The drivers often hooked them or their jackets or helmets with some wire to the cabin walls.

Thanks Volker. Appreciate the kind words.

I can no longer "see the forest for the trees" on this one, but I figured I better get it done as part of my last hurrah. Smiley

Nice detail/observation of the helmet or keys scraping. Probably too late to add now...but where did this usually/typically occur?

Usually inside the cabin, for example at the rear wall for larger items or above the control panels for the key ring. They just had a s-bent wire in a not used screw hole or used a longer screw as hook.

  Volker , please don't make helpful suggestions like this when referring to one of Marc's " finished" pieces , because it usually ends up with him chucking  said model into the paint stripper bucket and him starting all over again . And , we , as a collective Forum , could not cope with the added stress .

 Thanks , Old Bean !
