Pocket wagon weathering

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

With the sudden amount of free time i have, i decided to spend it weathering the number of Dapol pocket wagons. Although having tried my hand at light weathering on my rake of resprayed mk3s i painted I wanted to go for a more varied and worn look. The results are as seen in the pictures. Thoughts, comments and suggests as always welcome.

That's a very good job and on the containers also. Old saying but true is to always weather what you see and not what you think it should look like. You seem to have followed the first part. I like it.

Rich,

Rich,

Although I didn't weather the inside of the wagons as they'll carry full length containers there will be a handful mixed in that will either be ran empty or with 20ft container or barrier that will have some weathering on the inside as they'll be seen. cheers Rich

Very well done, Dempsey, very realistic. What sort of paint?

I used dry brushing and appalled layers.

Copper colour first, Frame dirt next followed by roof dirt. I varyed between light to heavy depending on how used i wanted the wagons to look. Finally i brushed over each using the air brush with frame dirt.
