Simple weathering

As part of my scenery, I have a Fergie, one of the cheap Atlas models. I always thought it was too shiny!

With a little simple paint and weathering, covered with flat clear, it looks a little bit used, and definitely less shiny...

I may have built one or two slot cars that didn't turn out to be super racers... Checkeredflag   This, however, would be beyond my red line! Bigsmile

Stunning job  Thumbup

Da Vinci brushes and Vallejo paints, my weapon of choice for re working some of my fathers railway stuff, not anywhere near your level though.

Thanks for the comments!
I think I am slowly loading for making a barn find racer. Cool

I really like making things look old and aged, maybe 'cause I am not that new and fresh myself... Sun I find slot cars, in general, too shiny.

Here is an earlier attempt, one of my own woodies. This time I used traditional methods, oil, turpentine, and pigments, splattered on and softened with a cloth.
Plenty of layers, I think a nice result depends a lot on how much patience you have.


Not too shiny, is it? Sun
