Once seen as a niche practice, the craft of weathering has now become firmly rooted in the railway modelling mainstream. Not simply a means of rendering models in layers of dirty paint, weathering involves a myriad of techniques aimed at improving realism, including distinctive surface textures, highlights and shading, burnishing and peeling paint finishes. The weathering process beings out the best in a model, making moulded relief or a lustrous livery really stand out. As well as replicating the real world more closely, weathering also helps a model to look at home within a scenic setting.

Aimed at modellers of all abilities and eras, this book is an essential guide to creating the most realistic locomotives and rolling stock in any scale. It includes:

  • A guide to tools, paints, washes, dry pigments and other innovative media
  • The correct techniques for model preparation
  • A wide range of techniques for wagons, carriages, locomotives and multiple units in any scale
  • How to replicate authentic surface textures and effects, from polished surfaces to corroded metal and worn timber
  • How to bring models to life with faded paintwork, peeling and chipped finishes and subtle highlights and shading
  • The secret to successful airbrushing
