QUOTE (woko @ 6 Oct 2008, 15:04) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>The article in this months Hornby Magazine about weathering was all good, but I am looking to weather my locos using an airbrush. What I would like to know is whether anyone can suggest some good colours/paint range for rust, dirt, and grime, or any other possible colours that might be successful? Also anyone know of any good colour photo reference online or books I can use a guide?

The Art of Weathering by Martyn Welch (Wild Swan Publications) is in my opinion the 'Bible' for any modeller who wishes to weather anything. It includes chapters on loco's, coaches, wagons and buildings. Although mainly in black & white it does have a colour supplement.

With paint, Humbrol, Railmatch and Phoenix Precision all produce colours for rust, track dirt, brake dust, sleeper grime etc. For loco's I use a dusting of 'Dirty Black' from Phoenix after hand brushing detail.

Good luck.
