A German Gmhs 53 Boxcar part 2

It’s always a bit of a struggle weathering cars. The hardest part is where to stop. In this case I wonder if I didn’t go to dark on steel beams on this car. After fading with a mixture of clear matte varnish, airbrush thinner, white and rust wash I made the decision to darken all the beams and other lines on the car with a dark grey wash. Maybe I should have used a lighter tone, maybe not. Maybe I can enlighten the overall appearance with some filters or try it with some oil paints. Well I finished these base layers with an overall spray of varnish and it’s ready for the accents, streaks and other funny things that appears on boxcars used for quit some time. We see how it works out.
