O Gauge Parkside Grampus

. When I asked my friend Graham what colour he wanted the wagon painted. Black, Olive Green or Yellow/Grey.  His reply was ‘rust’ !

Graham had seen a well weathered wagon at an Exhibition and asked me if I could have a go at getting it as disgusting as possible without going into fantasy.

After a base colour of black, followed by three washes of dilute enamel paints, I put the ground in rust on with designer gouache – here are the results after a coat of matt varnish to seal the whole wagon.
