Wagons Rolling Again

My last posting, after our exhibition was stating I'd be back to wagon building.

While I build too many I do so often move on before weathering and gather a backlog of almost there projects.

After getting some secondhand kits I decided to make up the Airfix Presflo. I already had one made in 2015 still

unfinished, well at least without weathering and these did get very dirty with white cement dust.

 

At last not only the new build, but my old one made to look like a working wagon. Seen here alongside Bachmann

models in the two later colourings used by Blue Circle.

One thing I didn't do was add the wire grab-rails at the ladder tops. I decided they looked O.K without

 

What next ? Perhaps a couple of very old Cambrian kits, so old they include plastic two part wheel sets that I will NOT

be using.
