Weathering – SENTINAL – Lime and Cargo wagons.

Its late February and this is what is probably the last weathering session of the month. Today is the best day for a while to spray and varnish so I took full advantage.

All subjects were researched before starting.

 

5 Dogfish and a Catfish in O Gauge.

Here we have six Ballast Hoppers, they have been medium weathered for Mike. I renumbered some, but I did have a lot of trouble getting the same colour transfers as the original Heljan lettering.

I used the wash and wipe method on the bodies – on the inside, I washed but did not wipe. The next step was airbrush the chassis with four different colours, special care was taken with the ballast shutes. I then went back to the inside and sprayed a mixture light rust colours – finally I dropped some O Gauge Ballast into the hopper and moved it around while the paint was still wet – after about 10 minutes I emptied the ballast out.

O Gauge Weathering (Feb 2020)

Yesterday I weathered three Loco’s – one for Colin and two for my Morlock Heath Layout.

Colin’s Dapol Sentinal

The Loco has been re-named and given a light – Medium Weathering as well as extra coal in the hopper. It is DCC Sound fitted by Coastal  DCC Ipswich. It is appearing a Milton Keynes Model Railway Exhibition this weekend.IMG_1130

Two Dapol 08 Shunters for Morlock Heath.

These 08’s have already appeared on this site before weathering. Now they have had a medium weathering in preparation for an appearance at March Model Railway Exhibition on March 14th.

A new member of our syndicate.

I would like to welcome Jaeson Pryer to our Model Syndicate. Jaeson  is primarily joining us as an operator as our Exhibition Diary gets too much for the four of us. Jaeson has been/is a member of several Model Railway Clubs and is experienced in most Railway and Modelling subjects including Exhibition Planning and Layout Operations. Jaeson does not have an Exhibition Layout at present and his main part of our very diverse hobby is LEGO trains and accessories. I will therefore be adding a ‘LEGO Railway Display’ to our  list of available layouts on our ‘Exhibition Layouts’ on this website.
