Weathering for Railway Modellers Volume 2 - Buildings, Scenery and the Lineside.
Weathering is not just about making something look dirty. Rather, it should be seen as an artistic endeavour, with the aim of making a model appear as lifelike as possible. It also helps to blend a range of separate structures into a cohesive scene. Careful weathering brings out the best in even the most mundane model, drawing attention to moulded relief and enhancing surface textures. In this latest volume, expert modeller George Dent shares his theories and practices on the art of weathering buildings, motor vehicles, ships and all manner of scenic features.
- A guide to paints, washes, dry powders and other weathering media
- Simple techniques for maximizing realism on all types of buildings and structures
- Effective methods for weathering road vehicles, machinery and ships
- Innovative techniques for reproducing peeling paint, corrosion and bare timber effects
- Using an airbrush effectively as part of the weathering process
- Simple approaches to making authentic muddy tracks, road surfaces, platforms, railway track and infrastructure
- Guidance on treating smaller scenic items, including figures and animals
