Weathering without an airbrush by Ian Millard

Demonstration on using Pan Pastels and washes for weathering diesel locomotives and rollingstock. You will see how weathering can be done easily and quickly using a range of different techniques and mediums that have been “borrowed” from other modellers. There are lots of videos and articles that can be found on the internet. “Just have a go” is my motto when it comes to weathering.

Biography I have been a railway modeller since my late teens (mid 1980’s). I enjoy all aspects of the hobby including scratchbuilding turnouts, signalling, weathering, scenery and layout construction. I am currently building a large HO scale layout in a 100 square metre (1076 sq. ft) dedicated room. Check out my blog at
