Brilliant that weathering Tom, I know it might be a trade secret as it’s your business, but! what do you use for the rust effects they look particularly spot on.

 Cheers 

 

Thanks Ade. It's a mixture of powder with a paint basis.

Another three Accurascale HUO Hoppers for a client. Rather like these big Hoppers, sadly I can't used them in my own modelling.

Impressive work Tom. Have you ever worked your magic on any n gauge models? 

 

Thanks branchie!

Apologies for the late reply, I was in wonderful southern Snowdonia all yesterday on the Talyllyn Railway.

 

Very happy to work on N Gauge stock. :)

Diesels are beginning to grow on me! This Dapol 4mm Class 22 was a real joy to work on!

Brilliant that Tom I’ve just done a 16T, pales mine into insignificance! Also currently doing a meat van at present very similar to the 12T you have done there, gives me something to aspire to.

I’m guessing you have client photos to work from?

 Cheers

Almost like I've gone back in time with my proposed idea for modelling Thirsk 'pre war' some of you may remember. This is probably a good example of a cleaner/well kept locomotive taking longer than a more heavily weathered example.

Four and half hours later though, and the matt plastic finish has been buffed to represent A4 2509 Silver Link as she would have looked by the time she had reached York, after leaving King's Cross on the Silver Jubilee, per the client's request.
