Washington Northern

HO scale model railroad

MP15DC #5033 - Atlas Gold Unit

This model was weathered while referencing a prototype photo of a BN MP15. That particular model displayed a very mud splattered set of truck sideframes. To replicate that on this model I removed the sideframes from the model and working slowly with very minimal paint flow, built up the light tan color on the truck sideframes to try and match the prototype photo.The ends of the fuel tank also showed a nice coating of dried mud.


  • Weathering: airbrush, artist oils and weathering powders
