MLW RS18 Madness - Part 13
The RS-18 project is nearing completion. All decals are know done and paint is almost complete. After looking at many prototype pictures, I decided to add ACI label on the sill.
I'm also trying t ofigure out how I will weather the units. I'm thinking about doing one engine with a badly discolored CN wet noodle and to keep the two others more toned down. I've never done that kind of weathering and I'm open to suggestion about technics to achieve that effect. Feel free to share ideas or tricks.
I'm not into harsh weathering because it sets the locomotives in a very specific time period. Keeping them more generic is better if you want to run them in different eras.
