    Great shots everyone - as usual!

    John W - wow, that's a looooong way down. Hope that bridge is inspected regularly.

    Only one shot this week. Same pair of weathered hoppers as last week, but from a new angle:

    Thanks, Hemi. I did, indeed, do that. It was masked, but touched up by hand at the end. The black and silver colors do cover each other very well. That makes it easier.

    Bruce: Nice weathered hoppers, but what about that bridge in the background? Really nice job on that. Looks like it is still under construction.

    Farr grills are Plano. The nose was masked, too, and finished off by hand. The paint always leaks a little.

    Looks like some rail fans have found a good spot to spy an engine with a holiday paint job, still in need of lettering.

    The weathering on your turntable really sets it off. Nice job !

    Tom,

    Fantastic modelling as usual and love those hoppers.

    This afternoon (Sunday) I decided to patch a couple of hoppers I recently bought on Ebay, here are the results.

    Thanks. It's a 2% grade, although that area can fool the eye with the angle of the fill and hills, etc.
