Weathering is not just about making something look dirty. Rather, it should be seen as an artistic endeavour, with the aim of making a model appear as lifelike as possible. It also helps to blend a range of separate structures into a cohesive scene. Careful weathering brings out the best in even the most mundane model, drawing attention to moulded relief and enhancing surface textures. In this latest volume, expert modeller George Dent shares his theories and practices on the art of weathering buildings, motor vehicles, ships and all manner of scenic features. Topics include: A guide to paints, washes, dry powders and other weathering media. Simple techniques for maximizing realism on all types of buildings and structures. Effective methods for weathering road vehicles, machinery and ships: innovative techniques for reproducing peeling paint, corrosion and bare timber effects: using an airbrush effectively as part of the weathering process. Plus simple approaches to making authentic muddy tracks, road surfaces, platforms, railway track and infrastructure. Suitable for railway modellers of all abilities, scales and eras. Superbly illustrated in step-by-step format with 438 colour photographs. George Dent is an expert railway modeller and is Deputy Editor at Model Rail magazine. A follow up to the highly successful Weathering for Railway Modellers Volume 1: Locomotives and Rolling Stock.

Scenic Modeling describes landscape modelling from a new perspective. It explains how to design and construct a model railway in a convincing and pleasing landscape. The author has always considered that model railway dioramas are an art form and this book is brimming with advice and tips that will allow the modeller to create true-to-life landscapes. Important aspects of all stages of construction are covered, including the building of satisfactory baseboards, topography and ground cover, modelling lakes and waterfalls, and making realistic trees. The author argues that a good model railway is one that is placed in an accurate and realistic landscape which, after all, was there first, and he contends that scenic modelling is not just a means to fill up the gaps in between track work; rather it is essential in creating the perfect backdrop, enabling model locomotives and rolling stock to be displayed convincingly.

Once seen as a niche practice, the craft of weathering has now become firmly rooted in the railway modelling mainstream. Not simply a means of rendering models in layers of dirty paint, weathering involves myriad techniques aimed at improving realism, including distinctive surface textures, highlights and shading, burnishing and peeling paint finishes. The weathering process brings out the best in a model, making moulded relief or a lustrous livery really stand out. As well as replicating the real world more closely, weathering also helps a model to look at home within a scenic setting.
