After taking the wagon to pieces, i sprayed the the parts with Tamiya Nato black. I like this shade because it isn't quite black and looks slightly faded.
Once dried i added the decals (HMRS sheet 11)
Then reassembled.

Finally, some damage and muck was applied.
A light wash using Windsor & Newton Galeria 'mars black' was used to dirty the white lettering and also hide the strange shadow that the decals had created.
Following this i applied some rust, maybe a little too much. I wanted a slightly 3D effect  to the rust so i used Windsor & Newton's burnt umber, cadmium orange and cadmium yellow pale hue. Using a stiff rough brush i merely touched the surface of the wagon so the paint was actually a lump. This dries quick around the edges so a clean wet brush is used to apply water around the edge of the paint so that it bleeds and creates a slight fade. A 3/0 brush was then used to make the rusty rainmarks.
 I wanted to recreate the horrible sludge that is often found in North Wales around the slate quarries. So, i made a mix from Tamiya Light grey, red brown and a touch of German grey then added a hint of water to thin the paint down so that it would spray in a 'splattered' effect.
I am reasonable happy with the results, i am a complete novice at this game!

Well then, the only criticism Barney is retaining those huge couplings.

There are options even if wanting to use tension lock like replacing them with the small ones from Hornby or Bachmann.

I would have thought the underframe and running gear would have been a much darker colour Barney, tattier too. Just my opinion of course as it depends a lot on how much weathering you want to carry out.

Sol, Robert, i agree with you both. Couplings will be changed at a later stage.  The underframe is a little bland so i will have another bash at it.

Cheers guys

I like it!

I agree with the others that the underframe needs a little more weathering yet but it is well on the way anyway.

I like it, but I'm also terrified of ever doing anything like this to my stock....it must need a bit of courage to start  :???:
