Weathering after prototype II

The most recent addition to my proto-weathered collection is done.

This time an old Roundhouse N-Scale “Route Rock” boxcar was the victim. Like to say business as usual – scribbed of the factory lettering for CAPY and COTS, aribrush/acryl fading to a very light blue, removed the fading from the big R and added new and custom printed CAPY, COTS, and reporting marks.

Next was the big rust bleeds and scratches all done with powdered pastels – tendious work but the final result is mind blowing.

The comparison to the stock paint shows the heavy fading.
