Autocoach Painted

The Fatadder


A very long time after completing the detailing, I have finally got on with painting my autocoach into wartime brown, based on a 1945 photo of 4870. I have bought it forward a couple of years to 1947 (with 4870 now renumbered as 1470) , however the coach will remain muc b the same z


As previously mentioned the model has been detailed with the Dart Castings pack, so it’s separate handrails etc on the body and a lot more detail on the chassis.


The body was sprayed in Triumph Russet Brown over white primer, which based on the samples at Didcot gives a pretty good match. The roof was painted with Vallejo grey black (with a little mat black roughly mixed in to randomise the colour. The chassis was painted with a mix of 2 parts light brown, one part cam brown and one part grey black.


It needs orange lining adding, and glazing with laserglaze. I also need to find a source of autocoach buffers as well.....
