Very good book, however many of the concepts in this book are very basic. Great idea database for model railroaders wishing to weather their trains. Simple and straight forward. However, I feel this book, and Done in a Day leave a little explanation out. Some prior knowledge is required. This book will not make you a master weathering guru, however it will aid in the basics of a unique, realistic fleet.If you've already got the basics down, check out Done in a Day also by Pelle, or the harder to find "Weathering" by Thomas Mann. The later of which will dive into some off the wall techniques.
This book, Pelle's second Weathering Freight Car Book, not only picks up where his first book, "Done In a Day" leaves off, but it refines some of the techniques shown, and adds to it. It is a book worth having for creating a good looking and unique fleet of prototype Rail Cars. If you aren't fortunate enough to know Pelle personally or atttend one of his hands on clinics, this is a MUST HAVE.
I have Pelle's first book, so naturally I couldn't wait for this. His work is top notch. His instructions and techniques makes it easy even for a first timer.
this book gives great deal of suggestion on how to detail railcars. There is something here for ever one interested in detail your rail cars.
It is a good book on weathering. I like the loads that he makes. The pot scrubber load is something I will try.
Bought as a gift for my son-on-law. I don't know much about the content but he was very pleased.
