With the weathering of the loco finished I am trying to get some good pics. I am not entirely happy with the lighting .. am running to town in a bit and will see if i can get something to better add fill light.

Ahh. MUCH BETTER!! Figured out finally that I needed to take a photo of the white background while in Auto .. then switch to A mode and use that photo for white balance.

Working on an article for the January issue of YouTube Model Builder's eMag. 'Theme' of this issue will be "Rust, dirt and grime". I am going to rust, dirty and grime-up a Bachmann On30 Davenport. Here is the first step .. a coat of Rustoleum flat brown as a rust base. Need to see what I have "on hand" darker and lighter, reds and yellows. This will end up as if the vehicle had never been painted and left to rust .. and will act as the bottom layer using the hairspray technique. .. sneak peak.

Piping in my Hose House scene. I used my 3D printed pipe fittings and 1/8" Evergreen tubing. The colors on the pipe .. base color of a gray primer then washes of white, beige, browns .. very thin acrylics and AI wash. The rust is a mix of brown acrylic .. the brighter red is via Rustall™

Camden SC, 27 April 2015

Love walking down alleys. There is often even less done to the buildings there than even the back. Several things I noted:

1) Look close at the bricked up window. When the window was originally installed they bricked the wall to fit the window. You can see that where the brick just above the ledge is not a full brick .. perhaps only a third brick thick. That is why when they bricked up the window the bricks are misaligned.
2) At one time .. before being bricked up they had the metal shutters installed - two of the hinge pins are still there. Interesting that the right side was damaged .. the lower pin cemented in. I have to wonder if that was why the window was bricked up .. I can imagine a thief breaking in there and they decided just to brick up the darn thing.
3) The doors of the metal shutters above are dented on the bottom edge. I suspect that at some time something was lifted through those windows.
4) Under the top window is an opening for a pipe... crudely concreted in.
