Alain,

As I look through each set of your photos, I am very impressed!  Your attention to detail, and your realistic weathering are awesome!  Did this trailer begin life as the Revell lowboy, or was it scratchbuilt?

Cudos to you. You did a very nice job on the realism of the trailer. The weathering is out of this world.  I just got this weathering kit from Tamia is that what you used? I'm going to try to do that to my titan exhaust stacks. :)

Hello Mike,thank you for comments.Not it is the kit of Tamya.I have this kit but I do not like.I developed my techniques and of the special Tools to make the weathering.
