JM Huber Hopper - More Weathering

Another hopper weathered. Slowly, but certainly, I'll see an end to this project of weathering 100% of the fleet.

This hopper is a custom decorated Athearn BB kits that should represent a Trinity-built hopper. Unfortunately, the correct car doesn't exist in HO and would require kitbashing a very expensive and discontinued Walthers car with parts from an Atlas hoppers. Something I'm not eager to do... I've better thing to do with $150.

Like many other JM Huber hopper, weathering is light and I tried - with little success - to replicate light rust spots developing on the sheet metal. It was my first time and visibly, it shows. I hope to do better, but this foobie was a good opportunity to learn.
