Hats off indeed! Can I ask where you got your coal? It's much better than the stuff I'm using.

 :thankyousign:  I've used real Welsh coal for the wagon loads (picked up a few lumps of it the last time I was there!) which I've crushed down,  A tutorial http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=17758.0can be found here how I made the loads,

cheers, Stu.

 :thankyousign:  Here's my thread on them http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=11276.msg190242;boardseen#new
I've done them by drybrushing, darker rust colours 1st, then when drybrushing again with lighter shades of brown. Underframes sprayed using an airbrush in frame dirt & matt black airbrushed around the side doors.

cheers, Stu.

I've never been into the weathering thing but have preferred my locos pristine but seeing your weathering pictures has made me have a rethink as they look superb.   :thumbsup:   :greatpicturessign:

Not exactly a flexible supply solution if I have to go to Wales to get it! :D

I've seen your tutorial on making the wagon loads. It's a nicely detailed one, that's for sure. My method uses card and more card, so no messing around with any filler (which I prefer), but either method works just as well. It's the material on top that needs to be just right.
