I had a kidney stone blasted yesterday and since they put me under general anesthesia no driving for 24 hours.  I’d painted the black areas on the Seaboard AF-4 and wanted the paint to completely dry before masking for the sides.  Looking around the layout for something to occupy my time here was an untouched Rapido NP boxcar.  Sprayed it with my Dullcote mix of tan and black to tone down the factory lettering and provide some ‘tooth’ for colored pencils and PanPastels.   Various light and dark browns were used on a few of the boards, then used a mix of 91% alcohol and thinner with black oil paint and ‘pin washed’ the bolt heads and details on the ends of the roof just to accent some of the details on the model.  Roof walk painted with Vallejo black, flat brown and light gray mixed.  

Relaxing weathering effort on a nice RTR model.
