Weathered 1980s Blue - Locos and Stock

3. Paint stage. Railmatch frame dirt on the buffers and underside. 

 

I find this is a great base coat for the layers to come. A bit like painting your base board green brown before you static grass it.

 

I give this several passes and also vary the thickness. For example I notice that on the real thing even with a lot of muck on the red of the buffer beam still shows through a bit. So a thinner layer is on these.

 

I usually put black paint on the roof. But, after looking at pictures of 56s, I am going to give it a miss on this one.

 

The silver paint for steps, buffer shanks, chipped windows I leave right to last.

Looking good. Makes a nice comparison to my ex-works version!
