    Same picture of 2251 but slightly different angle to get more of the derelict house in.

    Good idea Andy Followed his layout/ideas for years. Missed. Looks like I need some more wagons, but only a few...... need more storage boxes as well!

    New van on line with friends. Just waiting for NCU transfer to turn up, then complete weathering and add S&W coupling. This is a Peco Parkside model with transfers of a GWR Mink van but the ones supplied where for a BR version! So delving into my stock I was able to come up with these from Fox, Ratio and Cooper Craft - again never throw anything away as one day!!!!! With regard to the running number this was a bit of lateral thinking. I didn’t fancy doing a whole number of individual ones but then I spotted from the Cooper Craft cattle wagon that I had 38528, hmm I thought, there is a V12 series between 85036 to 85335. Now if I took the 3 from the front and added it to the rear I could turn the cattle wagon number from 38528 to 85283 - sorted with very little work ideal for a lazy modeller like me!!!

    Two replies... 1. Very nice but what would I do with all those wheels?? 2. I have, most of my stock is Chinese?

    Found the wheels...... As you can see I tend to do a lot of the painting/weathering before I put the transfers on. This allows me to slightly age the planks by painting a lighter grey wash along each one without having to worry about the lettering. Then i do the final weathering with them on.

    Getting better, getting more like I can see in my minds eye! Really, Really, Really must leave now as though it was over an hour between coats I could see the latest wash was starting to re-activate the previous one...

    Gone back to weathering van roofs as I was just not happy with them. Using Lifecolor rood dirt washes been revamping a selection, getting better. Slow processes doing thin washes as you have to wait for each coat to dry so you don’t reactivate it You know me... I do not want one roof the same as another. Still work in progress....

    You leave the V12 Mink peacefully drying in the afternoon sun, come back only to find some blighter has nicked the wheels.....
