08561 has interested me for a long time with the faded BR Blue and Maroon toolbox it’s certainly different ! So after months of waiting on eBay for the right 08 body shell with the correct boxes I’ve found a Hornby shell that was previously 08644 , I’ve removed the numbers logos and nameplates and hopefully this will be a quick project if I can work out a way to replicate the faded BR Blue paint work…

I’ve painted the toolbox and I’m waiting on some blue paint to cover the extra wasp stripes that aren’t needed for 08561. 
 

If anyone knows any techniques for faded BR Blue please let me know! I’m pretty stuck at the moment!

Railmatch do a faded BR blue, but I suspect if sprayed on in block you wouldn’t get the desired result as it’s patchy .I’d be tempted to try the brush on and wipe off technique with the enamel version, 

 

I have seen threads with people doing faded quite successfully but I can’t find them in here at present .

 

if in doubt , contact Jerry at  squirrel rail on here, he does professional repaint and I’ll bet he’s done some faded stuff .
