Description

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. Weathering for Railway Modellers, Volume 2 offers a guide to paints, washes, dry powders and other weathering media; simple techniques for maximizing realism on all types of buildings and structures, and effective methods for weathering road vehicles, machinery and ships.
