thanks guys

alan

the shed is the peco shed, if you need a shed i would hang on as bachmann have just or about to release a shed. this is a brick one and looks superb. chris may be able to shed some light on release.  it was in a recent magazine.

petermac

i airbrushed grime over the tanks to get rid of the plastic look, then weathering powders were added for the rust and streaks. a final air brush with underframe dirt and hey presto.

i got round to clearing some space today, i sorted out the engine shed and weathered the porta cabins.

 



 



 



getting ready now for my 56 project:cool wink

The cabins look great Matt and you have really got the hang of the weathering there. The air brush seems to be a serious tool for weathering giving an effect that is not so easy by other methods, quick too.

 Beautiful weathering jobs, Matt.   All those years spraying graffiti are paying off  :mutley:mutley   I really like those cabins - it's good to see something a bit unusual. They're unusual to me, anyway.

Your weathering skills are coming on in leaps and bounds Matt. I love the workbench, my order for one is in the post :thumbs.

The cabins look really good and i think seeing the figure on the steps makes them more life like as well.

thanks all

Bob

the airbrush is a great help, i have never been an arty person but this is superb and easy to use. the best thing about an airbrush is you can apply very faint layers to a model, say a BR blue model you can apply off white over the blue evenly to get a faded look. this is something i would never be able to achieve with a brush.

Alan

the signs are from ten commandments, i will find the link for you but this laptop is playing up at the moment. i think i am going to send it through the naughty window in a bit:thud. they do all sorts of stuff . the site should come with a health warning as you can get carried away. they do stuff like these depot signs, station signs, vehicle detailing packs, cctv cameras, diggers and station signs. have a look through, they have a sister site called signs of the times. i think you have to order through ten commandments.

ten commandments

sister site

use the ten commandments link above, go to catalogue then 00 on the left then scenic items at the bottom. the code is  L96 £2 and you get 2 sheets that are about A5 size.

There's not much in the way of detail kit that they don't sell. Some 7mm stuff too.

i have not updated this for a bit, my camera has given up the ghost. i have decided to  buy a canon g9 which is 12 megapixel.  i have not been lazy, following on from my latex moulds i purchased some rtv silicone which when set is a much thirmer mould (same as the linka moulds). i purchased some peco point motors (plastic scenic ones) from you know who along with aws ramps. also some knightswig track and depot detailing parts. these were glued into a cassette size container and then i poured the silicone. i was quite impressed with the result, the mould is very strong and detailed. i have also purchased some resin so i now have 2 options 1. plaster for 2. resin. it will be good for smaller items but not cost effective for larger mould (walls etc).   i also have some corgi cement lorries in orange:shock: i went to town on one of these and detailed the cab, gave it a spray job (br blue just for chris) faded then weathered it all. i have also added 1.8mm led headlights (not as awkward as i thought) these will run from copper tape on the underside of the wheels then wires poked through the baseboard.  i have also started work on a hornby class 50 (br blue), this is a superb model that runs very well, this will be detailed at one end then attacked with the magic weathering stick:lol: that is about it for now

ok

i borrowed a camera (not a good one but it does he job. first of the leyland truck i mentioned earlier

what it started out as (very toy like)



 

now the wiring, copper tape will be placed on the base of the wheels and the wire soldered to this. copper tape will be put onto the road and a dropper sunk through the baseboard and connected to a power bus, this way the lorry can be lifted from the layout.

 



 

some general shots



 



 



 



 



 

now with the lights on

 



 



 



 



 



the light looks wonky on the pic but it is not noticeable when looking at it normally. also the window are moulded and not flush which make it look bad but not a lot you can do about it.

a class 50 detailed and weathered. i was very impressed with this model from the box. no screws to take of the body, very power full and the lights look great.



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

i like them dirty:thud as i said the camera is not a good one so the pics are not so good. as always any questions just ask and any comments good or bad i don't mind.

Matt the lorry looks fine,did you mount the led`s direct or are you using fibre
optics ?
one suggestion if you use waxed wire it can be stuck to the chassis and wont be
seen.

:cheers:thumbs:thumbs:lol::lol::lol::cool:

I really like your style of weathering, dirty just as it should be, and the class 50 is spot on, we also have one that needs weathering and I hope it can look half as good as yours, as for the lorry, well thats where you shine above us all, brilliant.

Departmental stock are referred to by "Fishkind" telegraph codes and were adopted by the Civil Engineer to refer to different types of stock, and have survived to this day even after 30 odd years of TOPS codes.

 

Grampus: sleepers,  ballast, spent ballast or engineers stores.

Herring: Trout: Catfish: Dogfish: Four wheeled hoppers, discharge inside,outside the 4'.

Salmon: Carrying 60' rail lenghts.

Rudd: refurbished Grampus.

Zander: Ex Esso tankers, replaced with box for sand traffic.

Sealion: Seacow: Bogie Hoppers

Then there are MY*'s MZ*'s MBA's etc etc etc, could bore the pants of everyone, Departmental Stock, could go on for hours!

That lorry is terrific, Matt. Looking forward to seeing it in place on the layout.
I wouldn't know how dirty those locos should be, but I do like the way you've done it.

Owen

the LED's are 1.8mm, i drilled a 1.5mm hole and mounted these (once soldered)  at the rear. i used milliput to fill in the gaps between the wheels and arches. the milliput also held everything firm. i may run the wire into the rer of the wheel and down into the tyre. i can then drill a small hole and push a pin\rod through the tyre to make a contact.

phil

thanks for the comments.

 

Alan

i do think i went a bit overboard with this one (i do get a bit carried away:oops:) i have a freightliner 66 that i have just received back from Bushman and it looks far to clean. this is a bit passed the blue era but i like the 66 and i will be getting some dapol freightliner spine wagons to complete the set.

 

Kev

i have another 3 of these to have a pop at so it should be fun:thumbs

John

i looked into the departmentel names, i gave up after a bit:shock: it is like opening a can of worms. it is like signalling, it is ok to know the basics but how far do you want to go into it.

 

Mike
that means a lot coming from the paint guru:thumbs it was my first go at using gauche, i used it for the dirty black streaks running down from the roof of the 50. i was impressed with this stuff. i found the only drawback was you had to seal it after each application, but on the plus side adding a coat of matt varnish after each coat helped build up a good texture.

time for an update, i have not been lazy:roll:  i have done some work on my dodgy 66, the one that would not stay on the rails. well i managed to convince bachmann to have a look at the 66 before i threw it out of the window. see thread

my 66 is going out the window

i got this back a few weeks ago and just managed to get some work  done on it. any questions just ask.

the camera is a cheap and nasty one so please take this into account 4 megapixel and bad lighting.

i spent a bit of time on the exhaust as these start of as a burgondy plasticy urealistic clump on top of the model.



side on



front





end





as always comments good and bad welcome
