Model railroaders spend hour after hour making their model train layouts look more realistic. It becomes an obsession… Buildings, locomotives and cars get weathered and then weathered again for that perfect aged look.
There are so many different techniques to weather structures and along your model railroading journey you will continue to learn new and improved techniques.
Adding rust to roof sheets, water marks to walls, creating bush fires and smoke or having the perfect looking river, pond or lake are all part of the journey.
And the ultimate compliment is when a stranger comments on how realistic your layout looks…
