Fancy something a bit dirty

A fantastic weathering job done by Darlington Railway Modelling, makes this 40 look even better especially after I drilled holes in the nose trying to releasethe body. Well worth Â£25 in my opinion.
Nice close up of the detailon the roof,really makesit looklike a proper workhorse.

I'd actually say the sides and nose ends need a lot of the dirt removing and building up in stages. I think the weathering's been applied in one sitting but cleaning off and reapplying would really add depth to the weathering and ultimately give a more pleasing appearance with dirt deeply engrained around footholes and grilles but with the large slabs of bodywork show signs of have been through a washing plant but with dirt beginning to build up once more.
Just one detail mars this weathering - the windscreens are filthy, too.
'dubbers, to take your point further, I did this a little while ago -
To emphasis the withdrawn nature I sprayed a light dusting over the windows and when it was on shed, so to speak, with other locos which were in an in-service the contrast was rather nice
