97695 Weathering For Railway Modellers by George Dent Volume 1

Once seen as a niche practice, the craft of weathering has now become firmly rooted in the railway modelling mainstream. Not simply a means of rendering models in layers of dirty paint, weathering involves a myriad of techniques aimed at improving realism, including distinctive surface textures, highlights and shading, burnishing and peeling paint finishes. The weathering process beings out the best in a model, making moulded relief or a lustrous livery really stand out. As well as replicating the real world more closely, weathering also helps a model to look at home within a scenic setting.

Aimed at modellers of all abilities and eras, this book is an essential guide to creating the most realistic locomotives and rolling stock in any scale. It includes:


A guide to tools, paints, washes, dry pigments and other innovative media
The correct techniques for model preparation
A wide range of techniques for wagons, carriages, locomotives and multiple units in any scale
How to replicate authentic surface textures and effects, from polished surfaces to corroded metal and worn timber
How to bring models to life with faded paintwork, peeling and chipped finishes and subtle highlights and shading
The secret to successful airbrushing
