    Here's a link to a spacific picture in a set of pictures on Mellow Mike's site. http://www.mellowmike.com/FR8_Cars/TASX_Ends.html I wanted to point out this one because it's a really good example of "paying attention to detail". Notice on the end's of the car where the wheel "spatter" has left two lines up the tank of the car. Knock out work.

    Certainly! The whole point of this thread is to share ideas, whether it's a showcase of someone's work, or a step-by-step "how-to".
    It does surprise me, though, that weathering has become a separate, and commercially viable, part of custom work, especially when it's such a fun and easy-to-do procedure. There is some well-done work in those links, although it's sad to note that the one guy no longer has the time for a layout where he can enjoy his own work. That's the main reason that I've more-or-less stopped doing custom painting - making money was getting in the way of having fun.:)

    Well, at ModelTrainsWeathered.com a discussion about Mellow Mike blew pretty big because someone downed on someone else's work. I'm gussing him? Anyway there was also a lin to ebay for 2 89' flat cars custom build with loads and details that sold for almost $600. The thread on MTW was locked because of someone blowing up about Mike being a real a** all the time to everybody. I admire his work but from what I've read on his site in the FAQ he does seem to be that kind of person because of the way he treats everyone even when it's the nicest of people asking a simple little ol' question. I dunno. I can always pick up the same type of weathering tip's with the same results as him from nicer people.

    Jim Six is another talented "weatherer" whose work can be found here and there on the internet.
