Here is another sepia version of some valve arrangements at the bottom of a tank, part of a much larger model I am working on, the dirtying up takes a lot of time though.

That's great, Mike. Looks exactly like a hundred-year-old photograph.

That is fantastic Michael.

I concur with Henry's sentiments.

Thanks Henry and Don, even though I have been doing digital work for the last 18 years, I normally go for the pristine fabrication look and have had to start making my way into the old and the grungy look which I am still early days with.

The old equipment takes some beating for appeal and will eventually go back into the old pipework which was all segment bends and branches but never seem to have enough hours in the day.

Wow, yes it looks like it should have a
1915 date instead of 2015.

That is truly outstanding Michael. You sure you didn't hop into an 88mph DeLorean?  ;D

Incredible.  It looks like a photo lifted from shorpy.com.  Completely convincing, Michael.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, it's good to know it does have the attributes I had hoped as we all know it is easy to overwork something and go past a good variant with digital work.

Wow that looks really good. I thought it was a real old photo to be honest. Fantastic work.
