Re: asphalt tank cars

It would seem that the criteria would be something that would be thin, runny, set up hard, and accept paint.
My first thought without actually trying it would be the thinnest grade of ACC.  Perhaps a couple of coats
might give some reasonable result.  But I would try any suggestion on a piece of PVC pipe before putting
it on a model.

This is an interesting project. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to model the caked-on asphalt as seen on the prototype:
