Completed a couple of Parkside opens recently and took a few pictures of the painting process.
It has involved a few techniques i have read about and a bit of experimentation.
The wagon is primed using halfords grey Matt spray, the body brush painted with phoenix precision pre 1964 bauxite, thinned right down.
I paint the underframes humrol dark grey 34.
I used humbrol stone colour, humbrol light grey and humbrol black to pick out the bare wood planks and a mix of different humbrol browns and reds to vary the plank colours suggesting fading.
The bare plank mix is dry brushed (more like scrubbed) over some of the planks to suggest flaking paint and ware.
