Learning a New Trick
I was approached by a long time family friend who also happens to be one of my town's local scale train enthusiasts. C.B. McArthur, a former Army General, is a hard man to turn down. So when he asked me if I would be up to the challenge of painting and weathering a static model for the railroad modelers club layout, I accepted the challenge. Since I am starting a special project I hope to have ready in time for SEFF, and have never really weathered a plane before, I was glad to get the opportunity. Even though it is a resisn cast static model it incorporates many of the techniques I'll need to weather the special project plane, and from what I've been told, my first attempt at weathering and scenery is actually very good. It started out completely unpainted and a creamy yellowy white color and it now looks like a rusting old heap, which is what the pictures I was folowing looked like, so I guess I can call it a success. Several customers at the hobby shop I work in are award winning model builders and they gave me some excellent tips, as well as a big thumbs up on the finished product. So, even though it's not RC, I submit for your approval the "Rusty Little Steam Tender" from rustyrail.com for your approval. BTW. Lmopar69 is the only one who's allowed to disapprove.... LOL...I think it is a scale model of a product that was partially produced by .. someone other than Dodge... LOL..

I gotta tell ya Bo, that looks GREAT! Couldnt have been made by Dodge though, way too rusty! Musta been a Shivvey or Pherd. Kristy thought it was one of those things that goes in a fish tank.
Very impressive man. Maybe I should have you paint my 46 Dodge for me when I get it on the road... nah, it already looks pretty close to that.
Catch ya later man. Super nice paint job dude.
