The plan is to use a dark wash and a couple of pigments to replicate as much of the dirt as possible that can be seen in the photograph. There may need to be some additions as I progress, but they will be identified as and when appropriate.

Hi,

If you are after the same effect as the photograph may I respectfully suggest that you fade the main body colour first otherwise your model will end up rather dark.

Cheers

A valid point. It had been my original intention to airbrush a coat of ComArt Light Dust to achieve the fading effect, but that went by the board when I sat down to get on with it. Impatience got the better of me!

 

If I make the time, I'll do another one without being impatient and see what the difference is.

 

Thank you for mentioning it.

What are the pigments you'll be using Mick?

 

The darker one is AK Interactive Dark Earth and t'other one is AMMO by Mig Rubble. These two seem to be good colours for model railway vehicles to represent underframe tones. To my eyes, anyway, not necessarily to everybody's liking.
