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.
