Very tasty job. Really liked the way the white steps were done too. Very subtle and effective result. Pity the lights in the plough vans don't come wired with an anti-flicker capacitor.

I imagined it was due to me running DC not DCC. Is this not the case?

Having recently carried out weathering work for a follow forum member who I will leave to him to name himself, is there a want for such a service? 

I know there are listings in the services tab but since some are over 8 years old since their newest post is it a case that there is no one really doing it anymore? 

It is something I would like to do more often if the demand of course was there.

Just to say, really professional result here that l am VERY happy with and as people are often looking for this to be done, definitely one happy customer here who would fully recommend the service. 👍👍👍

The latest edition to the fleet no.184 found itself in the weathering line. My goal was to give the paint more of distressed look as opposed to a more filthy appearance and to push myself more and more with weathering. 

Your thoughts and comments as always are appreciated

Maybe take a pic of the roof? That's the bit you tend to see most of as a modeller. Nice work 🙂 Whenever I build up the courage to weather my MM IE stock that's the sort of look I'll be going for. Dirty but not as manky as the IR stuff.

Nicely done, but images look a little misty, is your lens clean?

It was an awkward angle to take the pictures from.

As requested. 

I do offer that service if you don't feel comfortable weathering yourself 😉
