After a very mild yet long winter, I cleaned and organized the garage recently and set up my workbench for painting, decaling, and weathering projects. I forgot just how much I enjoyed weathering individual pieces of rolling stock. I have collected and am storing a lot of items that were selected specifically for weathering and other enhancements to become a permanent part of my fleet. I am very close to finishing a pair of ARMN 57' mechanical reefers. Needless to say, my skills are a bit rusty (pun intended) after several months of focusing on other aspects of this hobby. Here are the 2 reefers with 1 remaining in original factory paint except for the graffiti decal. I used a fade coat followed by a black wash to dirty the car, followed by rust drybrushing. Graffiti was added in the middle of weathering, and yellow reflector stripes were added at the end of the weathering layers. I think I went a bit heavy on these, however, the prototype version of these cars are showing their age, and a few are pretty dirty.
