Another quick weathering job completed today, this 37 shell in Railfreight Distribution triple grey was picked up separately and plonked onto a ready lowered and weathered chassis from one of my Dutch tractors. Kept the weathering quite light on this one - I think it's a prime candidate to pull a few of the new Cargowaggon twins proposed by RevolutioN...

Just a bit of wagon weathering done today. A grotty Railfreight SPA wagon, given a few washes of enamel paints, matt varnish and a dose of weathering powders.

Latest off the workbench, these 2 dogfish...which have been swiftly joined by 2 more! Usual business of enamel paint washes, Testors dullcote and Mig powders. Load secured with Pledge Future floor polish.



Couldn't resist posing them with some suitable traction...

Latest addition to the fleet is this characterful little unit! Given a few washes of grime and a dusting of weathering powders on the underframe and roof. The windows also received a coat of Kleer floor polish to reduce the prism effect of the clear plastic - a tip picked up from aircraft modellers.

This week I have been working on this shed. I have completed more sheds than I dare to count, by seem to move them on pretty quickly - we will see if this one stays in the fleet! Anyway, detailed on one end, just waiting for the airdam/plough to go on the front. I picked the model up in a trade so have got one on the way from a pal. Iím also working on a Freightliner example which is getting there slowly.

Iíve been enjoying adding some light weathering to my RevolutioN / C-Rail containers that arrived today with some enamel and oil paint washes. The rust scar along the side of the far left one is copied from a real photo!

Received this little beauty in the post today! Iíve given it a little weathering of the underframe and a few washes around the details. Iíve no idea what the real one did or what it ran with, but the SatLink livery is real eye catcher. The real one is in a field not far from me on a private site in Herefordshire, so had to have it really!

It's certainly attractive and is, I believe, the Farish 374-135 MK1 GUV and there's a little history here....

Thanks! Thanks to the Facebook branch of the forum I found out they never actually ran anywhere (thanks Anthony!). Mine will! Still, a lovely model and it goes well with the peco pipe wagon in the same livery I have in my collection.
