I've had another couple of hours free so I got the paint out and had ago on a couple of wagons.

some faded red added and a couple of planks painted different shades.

this still needs some work. some more grime is needed and will be added once this paint has dried.

Really like your OAA - I'm doing one myself right now.

 

Even simple weathering with Tamiya powders brings out the detail on the body. I hadn't even noticed the moulded chains until I started the job. Very good detail considering it's a 30 year old model. And the sides are nice and thin too. OK, the underframe is not up to "modern" standards but fair play to Hornby all those years ago.

 

When weathered and detailed I'm more than happy to include it in a rake with more modern Bachmann offerings.

 

Thanks for the inspiration!
