Dapol Unpainted Wagons - finished and weathered
« on: August 23, 2020, 06:22:09 PM »
Hi All

I do not usually weather my stock so I bought some of the cheap unpainted Dapol wagons to practice on. These have been weathered with washes and powders. I used photos from Paul Bartlett's website as a reference. I do have a basic airbrush but I did these by hand. I have weathered scratch built buildings so have a level of experience but not with stock. Have a look at my efforts and any further tips would be appreciated.

Do not look too hard at the transfers as they are for 16T mineral wagons, as these are all I had about.

They look really good to me. Unlike RTR they've been made individuals :thumbsup:

You have done a very nice job there.

I always found the hardest part about weathering is knowing when to stop ;)
