Rake of Eight Mineral Wagons

Here we have a rake of Lionheart mineral wagons with various degrees of weathering. Some are very clean and they go through to filthy! All underframes were airbrushed after the bodies were hand painted with four different shades of rust. The methods include shadowing with dilute matt black and four different shades of rust stippled and hand painted. While the paint was wet on the bodies, I added a little Talc to get a little texture.

I had plenty of photo’s handy as reference while I proceeded.

Note – some wagons are photographed from both sides.

Dapol O Gauge BR Brake Van

Just a Dapol straight from the box item with medium weathering.

This was achieved by using my usual wash and wipe method with a Humbrol matt black diluted with thinners about 50-50. The underframe was airbrushed with Railmatch Frame Dirt, Brake Dust and Matt Black. The roof was washed but not wiped – while wet I stippled with a small piece of foam to create mottled look.

Copsey debuts at Sudbury Charity Event – Blue Era

Here is our second Era at the Sudbury Charity Event – Stock and some road vehicles changed from the ‘Anglia 2004’ running session.

I hope both sets of photo’s show how a very simple layout with only two ‘Insulfrog’ 3 way points can be used to run varied and interesting stock.

Copsey debuts at Sudbury Charity Event – Anglia 2004

On Sunday we attended the Acton Model Railway Exhibition, near Sudbury Suffolk. It was a charity show we attended for no expenses, have to say what a lovely little Show and so pleased we attended.

As this was the first Exhibition for Copsey, it was a nice gentle introduction. Before we went we had decided to run two era’s over the six hour Show, two by three hour sessions. Note – the Class 47’s are super detailed and re-worked Lima Loco’s with Ultra-scale wheels.

I will post the two sessions separately – so here is ‘Anglia 2004’
