O Gauge Heljan Warship

 

Below is a detailed and weathered (Light -Medium) Warship. After a coat of dilute matt black, 80% was wiped off and just left in all crevices to create shadow. Just airbrushing does not work for me. After detailing this loco does not fit back in the original internal packaging – it needs to be trimmed back! Hardly design clever this!!!!!!

Change of livery for S & T Pillbox Brake

Soon after finishing the livery on the S & T Brake we decided that although a valid livery it looked, well, very red! We had originally dismissed the livery with a full yellow roof as looking a bit ‘loud’, but I repainted the roof and here are the results!  I also added the extra piping to the body side that was forgotten. The inner doors and the inside frame were also painted grey as per prototype.  The first photo is ‘before’ the rest are ‘after’. IMG_5393

Batch of O gauge wagons before weathering

Here are a batch of five wagons, all are still to be weathered.  I have put these wagons on before finishing because several people have asked me to put on some before and after weathering photos.

The first three were all made by Graham and painted by myself:-

The Shark is a PRMRP kit

The ZCA is a Buzz Models Kit

The Pilbox is a Dapol Model

Please note – the Brake Vans roofs are not fixed yet as they need to be glazed.
