|This new DVD is a superb in-depth guide to helping you achieve the very best bespoke weathering job possible. Although most models are supplied ‘ex works' from the box it's easy to forget that railways are a naturally dirty environment. They operate within urban, industrial and rural areas, running through all weathers and, down the years, have carried all manner of materials. Although factory-applied weathering has been offered on a number of ready-to-run models in recent years and, while this offers the customer more choice, the effect can often look one-dimensional. They are, after all, merely sprayed with a misting of brown and black paint as they pass along the production line. ? With the expert help of George Dent a variety of different techniques are demonstrated including easy weathering with Tamiya weathering Master pigments, applying faded shades of the EWS finish, aiming for a tired paint job but generally clean. Weathering track with an airbrush. ? Using Scenic Rust and Tensocrom Glazes on buildings. ? Producing a dirty loco, but weathered using paints and powders. ? Producing the look of a working but well cleaned loco, using metalcote enamels buffed-up to give an oily shine. ? The end of steam neglected look using a combination of techniques. Selected highlights:- ? Light weathering with Tamiya pigments ? Distressed EWS livery on a class 37 Heavy weathering with windscreen wiper marks ? Track weathering with an airbrush ? Scenic rust and Tensocrom glazes on buildings ? The battered and rusted look of a 16 ton mineral wagon ? Realistic cleaned, oily sheen on an A4 Real coal and ash grease and grime on a neglected 8F|
