    Hello everyone, Rich Divizio here,

    Just an update on the location of my Weathered Boxcars website that used to be on a COMCAST server with only 25 mb of space.

    I was running out of gallery space, so I went with a 200mb server
    and a new domain name with is nicer.

    home.comcast.net/~rdivizio/trains is now

    Thanks again, rdivizio

    I think I told you last time, but anyway , those are wonderful. You weathering looks so real. The only way I know they are models is the kadees. :thumb: Fred

    Hey Charles, Some people have told me that it is the Flathead River someplace in Montana.

    ...very nice work, an inspiration and good example of what you can do - and it's good to see the fact pointed out that weathering is not that hard, it just takes a bit of your time...but in the end your time is very justified by the results you can see here.

    cheers,

    Thanks Lorne, I'm glad you like it.

    I love detail and have alot of patience when it comes to getting a certain look the way I want it.

    Rich,
    FANTASTIC!!! Best rust pitting I've ever seen. :thumb: :thumb: Have a question, is the clear parts cement you mention like Elmers or PV? Fred is right, the only give-away is the KD's. Is that snow in some of your photos? Your site is way-cool :cool: gotta bookmark it for reference/inspiration.

    Hey 2slim, Thanks man.

    I use the Testors Clear Parts Cement & Window Maker.
    You should be able to see it on the Testor's site or at your local train shop.
    It's a dull white looking glue, then dries clear.

    Yes that is snow, Chicago snow that is.

    Thanks again.
