Modellers used to think that weathering was for trains, or military models. Even Aircraft builders used it somewhat on a limited basis.

But today, it's a big deal. I think people are tired of doing perfect paint jobs in the past. Making everything exact and just the way a new vehicle might have looked. Fresh from the factory.

Now weathering has expanded into everything, including car and truck models. Now a modeler can forget about the perfect shiny paint job. Just weather it into a rusty junker, or make it look well worn and more "real" to everyday life.

Of course, like any modelling technique, there will be folks who take a new idea to the limits. But that's ok. There are numerous books on how to weather vehicles, so anyone can try it. I find it less stressful. And somewhat more fun to do. In many cases, it looks more realistic on the finished model.

You can make Apocalypse type vehicles, old barn finds, rusted out hulks. Anything goes.

It does take a bit of artistic ability, but it's much more forgiving than getting that ultra shiny paint job on a model car.

Ready to get down and dirty? Weather it!

 

 

These are supplies for weathering your models. Any vehicle, from tanks to cars to trucks, can benefit and look more realistic with weathering effects.

Silver Metallic Pencil
A pencil like this is an easy way to show use on painted model parts. You can run it along sharp corners, or make small patches where paint has chipped off during normal wear and tear.

Use weathering powders to make surface rust.
