I have now made a start on weathering a rake of about twenty 16T mineral wagons. They are all Lionheart/Dapol and as such will need to be ‘loaded’ as the interior door detail is lacking.
The wagons include fitted and non fitted and will have a variety of weathering from virtually clean to quite rusty. Below are the first five variations.
I mainly used a stippling method and added a small amount of talcum powder to create a little texture. I used five different ‘rusty’ colours – mostly Railmatch.
