Hard to do a write up.

I came across a couple of articles in British Model Magazines,
with write ups on weathering, and gave it a go.

I prime styrene with dull coat, and use my Badger single action brush,
air pressure roughly 25 PSI and have at it.

Before and after shot of my Coffee Pot,
final spray was done with transparent grey, to highlight the wood joints.
Roof has 4 shades of G sprayed on it,
ranging from Black Grey, Dark Grey, Blue Grey & Green Gray,
gives a nice blend compared to using one color.

Also weathered my LMS Beyer-Garrett 2-6-0+0-6-2 from another article. 
I find British modelers give a far better explanation on weathering then NA magazines.

HORNBY has a book on weathering, under their skills guide,
which although is British it gives me a far better understanding when it comes to engine or car weathering,
and I do have way too many to get done for my layout.
