First in line of my weathering projects has been my 10 Tara mines wagons from Irish Model Railways which I've spent the last few days working on and I'm extremely happy with the results. 

First layer of dry brushing.

Second layer.

Airbrushing of the lid and along the upper portion of the wagon

Airbrushing of the lower portion of the wagons with frame dirt to finish it all off.

All that remains is to apply grease marks to the buffers and varnish.

Very happy with how they all turned out with a good varied look throughout the 10 wagons. Look forward to hearing your thoughts as always.

Excellent work. The best weathered models are always the ones where the modeller weathers what he sees on the prototype and not what he thinks it should look like. You have done the former.

Rich,

Thanks Rich, Google images is a great resource and of course the people who go out and share the pictures they've taken.

I really like them myself. The only thing I've noticed is if you attach the vacuum pipes the couplers seem to hit off them when turning . I dont know if its to do with the tension locks they come fitted with or is it dependent on the radius curve you use or if a different type coupler would be better

Anybody can give a model a blast of an airbrush. But as Rich has said above, the trick is to try get it as close to what you're looking at, rather than what you think it should look like. You've nailed it, that's a top job.

I have been guilty of doing that in the past but as the skills grow and grow I find the airbrush more useful for applying varnish or doing a full repaint. 

Appreciate all the feed back guys thanks. More to come on this feed.

Next on the weathering bench were my resently acquired weed spray wagons. Thought i had gone somewhat over board although accidentally however i did manage too find some images that show the real ones in a similar state. 

As always your thoughts and comments are appreciated.

top class work

what method of weathering was this achieved with?

Just light dry brushing with small amounts and cooper and browns to give the effect of bleed through rust. Then watered down railmatch frame dirt with thinners and misted the model with a few coats. The over thinning allowed the paint to run and gives the streaking effect as if washed off with rain.

Next on the weathering bench is the guinness wagons. Kept it simple by dulling down the paintwork on the cages, frame and bogies with a coat of frame dirt along the bottom to finish. Hope you enjoy.

And since i have a new addition in a class 121 seemed fitting for it to take them for a spin
