Six Minerals and a Shark

Neal B


After several sessions of kitbuilding i decided it was time to take the plunge and get out the old hairy sticks. After quite a bit of study i deduced that in the 1970's, mineral wagons were rusty, very rusty. So i set about gathering all my rust coloured paints and washes and proceeded to obliterate the carefully applied shades of grey. I tried to vary things as much as possible. The results are above.


The Shark gave me a welcome break from rust and also makes a companion for my lonely Seacow. The Seacow is next in the paint shop but i can't decide on a livery. Dutch is tempting but it's a bit on the late side for my layout. Olive would be a more sensible option.

The steel minerals look good, I wonder if I could get away with a few being an LMS modeller, well I should say I wonder if I can hide a few in the collection :)
