Weathering on the bubbles was done by my son Alan who also built them a few years before the IRM models appeared. Dapol Prestwin chassis plus 3D printed bodies he designed. Weathering was mainly acrylics but with other materials added including tooth paste which developed an interesting greenish mould over the years. I tend to use oil based, water and acrylics paints applied at the same time as the 3 tend to separate out and create interesting patterns etc.

A bit of progress on the embankment and Mart site yesterday.

Wills scenecraft SS57 Varigirder. I think I used 2 packs, they also do a kit for the brick piers, I would have preferred stone but I don't think they do one.
