More Extreme Weathering

HO Scale La-Belle Passenger Car

This is my third extreme weathered project, this time a heavyweight passenger car.

This HO scale passenger car is a wooden kit made by Labelle. Some of the upper detail components were separately purchased brass parts, lower details are plastic. The doors I custom made using my home made CNC Mill-Laser.

Wood is not very “Weathering Friendly” and a lot time was spent keeping the detail while not letting the wood fibers show. The roof is layered with brass shim stock and tea-bag tar paper.

The passenger car was photographed on my detailed track diorama using my handpicked sand grain ballast.
