Brilliant that Rob they look spot on splendid stuff.
I'll not bleat about the bush, they look great .
Ewe don't 'arf ram it 'ome, matey!
Nice work, mi 'andsome!
An unusual view of Sheep Dip this evening.
This perhaps shows how things can be blended together by keeping to the same basic palette when weathering.
Same colours used for stock, track and buildings.
Presumably Norman must have been in a hot air balloon, drifting slowly and low over the yard, as drones hadn't been invented yet and I don't recall a footbridge in that location?
A Sopwith camel perhaps ?
I was going to say a Wellington, but it's probably too subtle...
This thread has drifted a bit and though these images are on the main Sheepy thread, I'll add them here to bring things up to date.
Various subjects with the buildings being intended for a couple of future projects.
Excellent work Rob, put's my efforts to shame.
The close-up of the grey wagon shows you have captured the weathering and the texture of flaking paint on shrinking wood. Excellent.
The weathered wooden LNER building brings back memories of Park Bridge station on the OA&GB line.
Surely, Park Bridge never looked that spick and span. Larry?
Lovely weathering, Mr Sheep.
Top drawer those Rob brilliant work.
Wonderful work Rob!
The weathering is excellent!
May I ask how you gained the effect of the peeling paint on the open wagon - particularly where it’s close to the metal work?
The peeling effect is a consequence of removing the varnished weathering powders using a fibre brush.
It's a bit extreme but basically the whole wagon is weathered using various weathering powders. When happy, the whole wagon is sealed using matt varnish.
Once dry, which doesn't take long, the weathering is removed on a plank by plank basis.
This inevitably gives a variation in colouring dependent on the time spent on each plank.
It also provides a wood grain effect and a peeling paint effect.
It seems to work.
Hope this helps.
That’s fascinating Rob,
Thank you for the insight. It’s brilliantly effective.
Here are a few images of the most recent victim of the weathering powders.
A Hornby BR standard brake van.
And the result.
