    Just to give you an idea what to post here. Post examples of your weathered whatever it may be... Rolling stock, a building, a lineside structure, a tree, anything you've done that you'd like us to see. Got a before and after shot, great. Got a step-by-step tutorial, even better. How about a list of things you used to get where you are, just fine. Need some help, post something and ask for opinions.

    We have lots of fine modelers on the Gauge that can weather with their eyes closed, and others that are struggling to know how to start. We are looking for all kinds of modelers, those that we can learn from and those that want a critique. Some may just want to post their work and not want any feedback. Just let us know what your desires are when you post.

    Looking forward to learning a lot here. :thumb: :thumb:

    india ink vs. Regular pen liquid... Speaking from experience DO N O T use regular liquid ink which is usually available at any stationary shop for the office. The label MUST say "india ink". Usually found at Walmart in thier craft section.
    Regular liquid ink does not break down when mixed with rubbing alcohol - india ink does. This is important which gives a brownish color (weathered) stain when weathering.
    just a kind word of advice.
