OO Wagons and Warley

I spent the Warley show helping people to have a go at weathering. They had a great time and managed to weather some of my stock to their satisfaction.I now need to finish these off but here are some examples of items weathered at the show   A couple of minerals with a bit of grime and rust     Then three with just the ink/water mix added     And a couple of Coke wagons     A Palvan Shock     and finall

Black 5 at an Exhibition

In between operating stints on the Leeds Club layout (Chapel en le Frith (Central) at the weekend I was asked to "tone" down a Black 5.   This is a Korean Brass specimen, with a new Comet chassis and painted in BR lined Black by Innocentman. A quick trawl through some nice colour photographs revealed a shot of this locomotive, gently travel stained, so..     delivered straight back to is very happy owner! baz

An EMd Bachmann "Mucky Duck" or "Chinese Cracker"

Just sent this off to be collected by its owner. An EM (regauged)  Bachmann Ivatt 4MT Mogul (aka a Mucky Duck or Chinese Cracker). Renumbered and shed/smokebox door plate  ( supplied by client) added. Pick ups fitted to the tender then a client supplied Zimo sound chip, stay alive and speaker were fitted into the loco at the smokebox end (I don't like steam chuffs coming from a tender). New front steps (comet) supplied by client added.   A nice colour photograph from one of the Ra

Diesels!

A few diesels. The owner had fitted DCC chips to them. I have reset some of the CVs on these to sort out acceleration/Deceleration and then a waft of weathering after adding the details at one end on these. First up a Vitrains 37   and a bit of front end detail   Hornby Class 50   Heljan Class 58  and the dreaded door stickers!   Bachmann/Kernow Sir Daniel Gooch   and a close up   and

Two BR Standard Locomotives.

Tow BR Standards for a customer. Both have had Zimo 645Rs sound chips fitted with stay alive units fitted into the tender, Both have a sugar cube speaker fitted under the chimney. Whilst I fitted the sound units someone else EM gauged the locomotives. Then I weathered them using Black and White photographs supplied by the customer to meet his weathering needs.   First up.. a Black Hornby 4MT 4-6-0 a bit of fairly dilute white poster paint to highlight some dribbling on the cylinde

EM Black 5s

Been busy with other things but just finished a filthy Black 5.  Basically a Hornby model with a new chassis, I fitted sound (the speaker is a sugarcube between the frames under the chimney as it is EM.) I then lined it to weather it to match a black and white photograph which shows about 8 inches of lining on the cab side!  Lots of ink then lost of powder. Number and lining cleaned using a cotton wool bud and water.   And another EM Black 5.   Comet tender, sugar cube

Some weathering of models on Carlisle (Railway Modeller Jan 2019)

A number of locos I have weathered or fitted sound to have appeared in the Jan 2019 Railway Modeller.   A couple of Heljan Co-Bos - regauged by Mike Edge then sound chips fitted (Digitrains), weathered and new pipework fitted     These work the "Condor" on the layout.   A DJH Clan - built by the late Alistair Rolfe (in EM) weathered by me .. and I think it has a Zimo sound chip fitted.     and a Caledonian Jumbo built by Mike Edge (in EM), weathered by me     Baz

Wagons from Blackburn Show

As usual at a show I didn't get loads of wagons weathered. Some I had started prior to the show...   First up a Parkside ex SNCF 16T mineral wagon.All over dirt with a bit of added rust     I have been working on some ex PO wagons. One is an Oxford mineral. A bit of work with a glass fibre brush then some weathering. The other is Slaters PO. By using the glass fibre brush on some of the planks means the original brown paint shows through. Some numbers from Modelmasters and then just a was

ICI hoppers and a 4MT

It is always nice to do something different. A set of four ICI bogie hopper wagons for Chapel-en-le-Frith arrived from Nicktoix. Not many colour photos of these so from the one "in service" one I have found... underneath inside   and two together mix of brown and black inks as a base coat, then some brown "Underframe" mix, black and "off" white powders used to get the limestone on dirt colour scheme and a loco - DJH Std 4MT in BR lined black by Nictoix from a RCTS colour photo.

Ivatts diesel pair, a Director and a Silver A4

Just to give some idea of the mix of weathering I get to do this week has seen     The Ivatt pair of mainline diesels - these are Bachmann owned by Nicktoix and what lovely locos they are!   Next up a Little Engines D11/2 - The Fiery Cross - in EM     and finally, for me for Grantham     Silver Link   and a bit of inspiration - a well cleaned loco which had gone to Carlisle and back - spot the dirty cab roof and tender top   Baz

Covhops!

Covhops! Yes i like them and the Bachmann offerings are very nice. I have had 6 of these for a while and they may be needed to run on Chapel en le Frith if we can't get the Hattons ICI hoppers in time... some unfitted ones - not to filthy and a fitted interloper - too late for my time period but it may be swapped for another unfitted one.
