After finishing my chores around the house today I was allowed to have some play time! So what better thing to do than duck into the shed, fire up the air compressor and get into some long overdue weathering. Today's goal was to try and get the bunch of Tuscan locos I had waiting around weathered so I can put them on eBay. These were some locos I picked up from a deceased estate, they are not my era, but were too good a price to refuse. I haven't weathered much in the way of the Tuscan era so it was a learning curve for me. Also very easy as there are heaps of photos around to use for inspiration.
The end result of a couple hours weathering. Unfortunately the photos don't do them much justice.
3507 is an AR kits loco in Marlboro. It is the only loco I will keep as I have wanted one of these for some time and you don't see too many others with them. I plan on doing a post on this loco as I have made quite a lot of little modifications to make it look more like a 35 and less like the as delivered 45.
4705 is from the TrainOrama family. As we all know high in detail, it just needed to look more like a model and less like a toy.
