At the risk of getting boring by posting so many of my weathering efforts, and in anticipation of weathering the A3 I had a trial run on Nellie.
And because I can I have posted lots of photos….. Enjoy!
Because Nellie is a fictitious loco I cannot find any prototype photos to use so I looked at various generic examples in Martyn Welch’s The Art Of Weathering book and tried replicate some of the effects – foot prints in the dust on the footplate being one such example.
I have also attempted to give the impression of where the tank sides might have been rubbed over with an oily rag. In the flesh this has come out quite well, but it’s very difficult to capture on a photograph (or it is for me at any rate…..)
