I always think a weathered loco or car looks better. Although the more expensive the model, the longer it takes me to pluck up the courage to do it.

This is my final version of weathering SU46. Now I applied flat finish so no more changes. Thanks for your encouragement. I posted the same pictures on polish Facebook for train enthusiasts and then I followed some suggestions. Of course I could probably do more, but when I take my glasses off this locomotive looks perfect to me.

This Friday my parcel with new rolling stock will arrive.
That will be something new to bring to the next show.

I love your house man. The weathering on it is gorgeous as well.

The loco looks good. Perhaps do some very light dirt on the second one? That way the difference is not so stark yet they're obviously different locos.

After I finished weathering my SU46 I decides to convert my new engine - S200 from ep. 6 to ep 4. This is my first adventure of this sort.
It took me three days to complete my project.
Now I have to order decals and apply them.
I already got some suggestions that I should have done this before weathering, but I didn’t know how long I would have to wait, so I did anyway.
Too impatient? Most likely - I will figure this out when I get my decals.

Wow, that looks great!
Is that an MTB loco? What do you think of it? It is a similar beast to the Russian ChME3, so was considering getting one and redoing it Russian.
Where do people actually buy MTB locos, I really haven't seen them advertised.

Yes, this is the one, so far I do have some 11 of different ones and no complaints and the price is right.
Yes, some people do have problems and what I heard MTB is very slow to answer, most problem are with bad assembly but it is easy to correct. Decision is yours.
I bought most of my stuff in Poland in Modelmania.com.pl , very friendly and knowledgeable staff and also they stand behind what they sell.
You could buy them from Hobby-shop.cz but they charge vat

Thanks for the info. It just takes me a while to part with my hard earned cash. So many things on the shopping list...
