Hi all, I've recently had a bit of time to do a few more weathering jobs on my models.  :)
First up, a set of 3 water tank TTA's from the weed killer range to add to my rake of TTA's. Water transfers removed, some hazard warning transfers added & some light weathering...

Simply superb, Stu.
I'd appreciate knowing how you created the destination blind for the class 33.

Thank you Mick,
I got the destination blinds from here,

No dismantling needed, they are self adhesive, just cut them out with a sharp scalpel & fit  :thumbsup:

The rust streaking on the bauxite ones really is particularly effective - not too excessive, just enough - very nice indeed.

Im certainly very pleased with the work Stu has done and I like the different treatment given to grey wagons compared to the bauxite ones.

Next up 1st one of my fleet of 3 Dapol class 33's, renumbered as 33015, & destination blinds overhead warning transfers also added. Snowploughs fitted both ends. Then everything weathering...

That has finally spurred me into action to fit a destination blind to my class 33. I'd assumed the blinds wouldn't look right if they were stuck on the outside, but I couldn't bring myself to force the lighting units away from the inside of the cab, so the roller blind labels have languished in the bits box. One fitted, with a dab of black paint around the edge to stop any excess light showing. Now I definitely need another class 33 with an 89 headcode for the Portsmouth - Bristol service...

Very nice Stu, like the wear on the buffers.
I always think it a shame about those awful couplings. Still we gotta have em I suppose. I wonder if transparent couplings would look any better?
