Ever since failing my driving test for the second time, in a Land Rover in Cyprus (exotic lifestyle!), I have had a soft spot for the machines. When at Railex in 2017 I found an Oxford Diecast 1/43rd version and decided to use it for a minimum cost weathering exercise.

Testor's Dullcote - £5.50
AK Interactive Dark Earth pigment - £4.45
AMMO by Mig Tracks Wash - £4.00
Daler Rowney System 3 Filbert brush - £2.50
Daler Rowney System 3 Round brush - £2.50
Wickes white spirit - £2.50
