Anders Gullberg: You should use red chalk on the red walls. Not the grey color! Now it´s too much dirt. Next time you build the plastic kit make sure to paint all details first with base ground color. It´s more easier to add the chalk after if you like dirt some where on the buildings.

telescopereplicator: Here are some constructive comments. I may sound a bit harsh at first, but I'm only trying to help.  
Before you start weathering a scale model, wouldn't it be a good idea to learn how to build AND PAINT a model, decently? You can throw chalk all over the place in thick layers, but the transparent plastic is still transparent. And there is too much white, on this model. Not true to life. Learn how to assemble a model. I can see an awful lot of flaws. Glue is everywhere and parts are not flush with other parts.
First, paint the model decently, then add chalk SPARINGLY and in the correct place. This way, you will get a far better looking model. More realistic and for sure more pleasing to look at.
I know, this is only a demonstration, but next time, make a better video. Chalk has a lot more potential than what's shown here.With all due respect, this model just looks bad.

Kenneth Hall: What size and type of brush did you use?

Hamza Rahmat: I\'m not sure but ,if anyone else wants to learn about building a model railroad layout try Panlarko Amazing Railroad Planner ( search on google ) ? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my neighbor got excellent results with it.

Nasro Saw: hi everyone ,if anyone else wants to learn about model train ho scale try Corbandy HO Scale Crusher (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my m8 got amazing success with it.

Absolution Cs: I\'m not sure but ,if anyone else needs to find out about how to make model railroad scenery try Boshapra Amazing Scenery Boffin (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my cousin got great success with it.

David Pacini: I have a question: which CIAK have I to use for the ROUGH? :-)

jdubbjazzbass: use tobacco ashes,it works like magic,it does not come off.and the model does not smell like a stale ashtray!!

shirlzknight: Quickie question?? Are these actually chalks or weathering pigments? Just never heard of anyone using chalk before although why ever not huh?

Graham Walters: I know you are American, but please learn to pronounce your words properly, it's CHALK not Chuk, and it's Roof, not Ruff !!

kenny atwater: Cool Im a beginner also. I have a little layout with the Pennsylvania Flyer Lionel train set and i will definitely send you a link of my project when im in the process of adding on to my layout.

Tim Riley: are you wetting those sponges or brushes at all?

chris dav: wouldn't have been better to have painted the blacksmiths shop  before adding the chalks.  and to mask the windows as the dull coat  will  frost them.

Justin J: Is this oil based chalk or what kind of chalk would you say if I was to get from a art store and smash up.....?

trainroomgary: Very well done demo, on weathering.

Clear Signal Productions: Sorry. I made he first comment in the middle of the video. I hadnt seen the part about dullcote yet.

Clear Signal Productions: Great tutorial. When you touch the building, will your fingerprints show up on it. If so, ho can i prevent this?

Hub Hobby Center: Awesome! Glad I could help. I definitely look forward to seeing it!

Jason Semerau: Thanks a ton!! Got a WW2 Tiger two that i'm gonna try this technique on. Thanks again !!!!! I'll send you a link of my project once complete. :)

Hub Hobby Center: Hi SlyDrJ! That's a great question. We are currently out of stock in the chalks. However, you can order directly from Walthers Model Railroading, which is a national model train distributor. As youtube doesn't allow links in the comments, I'll send you a message with the information shortly. :) Hope that helps!

Ur too cute :)

Neil Roux: Been using a G2 for about 3weeks.2weeks in the field in the Kruger National Park.It front focused on a Canon T6S.But I luckily had a old Canon 50D as backup.It focuses perfect on that body.Do u think it's a firmware issue Dustin?I'm abit between a rock and a hard place.I can focus adjust it but then I'll be able to use only that body.Or can one calibrate the G2 on multiple bodies via the Tap in Console? My observations are also that it's the sharpest at F6.3 to F7.1.At 600mm F8 is best.But u have such a narrow depth of field at 600mm that u might as well shoot at F8.I have also seen that if u keep it at max 550mm u get alot more sharpness than at 600mm.Zoom lenses are never sharpest at either end of the range.Just by backing off slightly u get an improvement of sharpness.Not alot but it's definitely there.
