Do have that problem often Lee, to much sometimes I can't stop adding layers..

Well I do have the next victim on the bench. Boy this ones small compared to the German boxcar. But a boxcar again and in this case its a Intermountain produced HO one.
First steps are not that exiting, just masking certain parts, fade lettering with a glass fiber pencil and give the car an overal spray with Vallejo modelcolor white wash in several thin layers to achieve this faded look. Sometimes I do think I go to far in fading and it looks awfull white but I believe the color enhances again with a wash of dark brown..and if not, I tested the paint underneath and can remove the whitewash with allejo airbrush cleaner, it does not attack the original paintjob..
