O Gauge JLTRT Pressflow Cement Wagon

This wagon was made by Graham and painted and weathered by myself.

I can not comment on the making of the wagon, but Graham certainly had to call on all his modelling techniques to finish it.

As far as painting was concerned it was a medium to difficult job with ‘lots’ of masking and quite a bit of hand painting. The transfers were OK, but could have been better– perhaps I should have varnished the transfers first! I put two coats of varnish on the transfers after applying them to ensure they stayed in place.

The weathering was performed by several washes and a little dry brushing on the body – then my usual methods on the chassis.

I am reasonably happy with the results – although it could have been better with more durable transfers.
