4374AW: [FS32NGModelrail] Digest Number 1054
- Jun 1, 2006
NachrichtHi Kevin,I painted the tank (plaster casting) with Floquil grimy black and then weathered it with a burnt umber/turpentine mix. While the turpentine mix was still wet, I dabbed brown shoe dye in ethanol on, which precipitated the shoe dye immediately and left granular, rust-looking spots. When everything was dry, I sprayed the tank with Dullcote. I also added spots of tan shoe dye in alcohol to the wet turpentine to simulate dust deposits. This method works fast and is virtually foolproof, therefore ideally suitable for me!The prototype for this tank is in Sardinia. Water tanks in southern Europe are often painted a dark colour like black.Mario

Neat tank. The finish looks like galvanised metal, or is that an
effect of the dusk? How did you finish it?
