I have a decent collection of grain hoppers that I picked up over the years, especially when Intermountain began releasing models with etched walkways and MicroTrains trucks and couplers. I chose an AGP model as a weathering victim, and I think it turned out quite nice. This is a green car, so I used a combination of my white fade and raw sienna fade to achieve the fading step. Next I went straight to brushing on burnt umber oil paint. Lastly, I added some graffiti and safety striping. The trucks received a coat of Polly S rust + grimy black with an airbrush, and then a light dusting of rust colored chalk, sealed with dullcoat. Wheelsets are Fox Valley Models. I added a "before" shot below for comparison.
