Yes - very impressive. :thumbs

What a difference those washes have made.  It looks very natural and highly authentic - nothing at all uniform about it.  Did you study photos to get the subtly changing areas of weathering Pete ?  A bit of "salting" here and a bit of "soot" there - it really does look very good. :cheers

Thanks for the comments chaps.

I am sorry to say Peter it wasn't that scientific, i was trying to picture a series of girder bridges which crossed the Manchester Ship Canal where i grew up, which is where the white bits come from and the other detail was to prevent it from looking as if it was straight from Bachmann in China.

I used different methods as seen done by other members and this was the result.

The ironwork next, i don't want to go OTT on the weathering as since this in town it would of had some maintenance. The bridges in Preston were/are painted in colours to cheer them up.

Time for an update now i have re-stocked up on materials and work is not ruling my life. I have made the pavements for the roadway. Nothing rocket science here 60 thou plasticard topped with Slaters 4mm paving. Kerbstones are invidually cut from 60x60 thou styrene alla Jim S-W. I like the lack of prescision in the kerb stones.




Start of under arch busnesses.

I'm glad to say it's still impressive Pete. :thumbs

What's the odd marking on the right hand paving ?  Is it just a trick of the light ?  It looks like a "skeleton" of girder work.

Hi Peter could be just a trick of the light or some stray adhesive, the latter probably i am a messy booger. It's all sprayed up now with primer.
