First Look

This product will instantly rust or weather nearly any object. It uses nontoxic powdered rust pigments and a dry adhesive. It is milled to a superfine particle size so it won’t obscure the finest details. Weather System works best on flat finishes. Glossy surfaces will need to be first coated with a matte finish. Any flat finish will work. The colors included with this kit are:

Weather System

  • Light Rust
  • Medium Rust
  • Dark Rust
  • Soot Black
  • Grimy Gray
  • Ash
  • Weathered Brown
  • Dust Bowl Brown
  • Old Yeller
  • Green Grunge
  • The Blues
  • Used Brick

Apply the dry powdered color with any small stiff brush to dry surfaces. Friction activates the built in dry adhesive; the more you rub the stronger the bond. No over-spray sealer is necessary. You can find this product at many Railroad hobby shops or on

I highly recommend this product for weathering all your dirty grimy tanks and planes.
