Thanks Mick.


Some brilliant images on your Flickr site, by the way. Presumably some of those are commissions?

Thank you, my Captain.


There are some images of O gauge and N gauge stock that was done for other people, but most of the OO stock is, or was, my own. I flit from one era and area to others not infrequently! I haven't done Scotland, yet. .. ... ....

You seem to like weathering the Minerva iron mink a lot. Beautiful work.

I've just read through this blog Mick and am blown away by the description and techniques, it's handy to save it all as I spoke o you at a show and you had a weathered O gauge Land Rover that was done using just 3 products, I bought the products and then subsequently forgot exactly what you did with them! 

I was wondering would you do exactly the same steps and colours if the loco was a BR Black 08?

Steve, I'd take the same steps, certainly, but might have to alter the colour(s) so that something showed up against the black paint. Best way of determining exactly which colours to use would be to find a colour photograph and study it closely to see how the dirt colour differed from the paint. The dark brown wash that I use might be acceptable.
