Looking very realistic. Nice job.

Thanks for the image and overview.  I went to the work bench and did a ‘beta’ test on a Proto 2000 hopper.  Using a needle in a pin vice I added some grain in a couple places and the used Vallejo black gray and black to replicate the weathered wood as in your photo of the WP car.   After the paint was dry I used the pin vice again to replicate more grain.

This is only a test to see how the weathering of wood can be pulled off - am looking for other thoughts and I’ll try more on this car and post the results.
