The newest addition to the hugely successful Aspects of Modelling series provides readers with a comprehensive guide to weathering locomotives and rolling stock. Historically, most proprietary model railway equipment was produced in a pristine condition; however, the reality of the railway industry was that the external condition of most locomotives and rolling stock quickly deteriorated as operation and weather took their toll. Of all the skills associated with railway modeling, weathering is perhaps one of the most difficult. It is very easy to spoil an otherwise beautiful model by the careless application of weathering, making information on the best methods of weathering all the more important. This informative new volume provides the modeler with a guide to the principles and practice of weathering locomotives in particular, and offers a step-by-step guide to the skills involved and the pros and cons of undertaking such work on models. The book includes instructive text alongside over one hundred mono and color illustrations.
