I mentioned on the Corwen Layout thread that my Dapol wagons needed weathering if they were to look the part on a scenic layout, but the project really needed a thread of its own. So this is it. A start was made on a steel mineral..... The body and chassis were separated (four screws) and the body sprayed Howes 'Sleeper Grime'on this first wagon. I will mix a similar colour in cellulose for the future. When dry, I drew the rust design on with ruling pen loaded with Mascol..... My cellulose BR grey was sprayed all over the body and when dry, the Mascol was carefully peeled off with the point of a knife and tweezers... If one wagon is tackled at a time, it can be interesting .... The annual Winter break from modelling is almost upon me. In previous years it was a tradition to pack in about now and despatch layouts to the council tip. Not this one though.........Just in case anyone wus wondering!
