    Will have a look at the post. not sure what happened I had uploaded the photos to the gallery first.

    Have finished both sides of the wagon as can be seen in the 2 photos below
    [​IMG]
    Have left One set of doors on the side below to replicate a set replaced from another wagon that had them removed
    [​IMG]
    After I let the Glue dry I then painted a dark brown primer all over the body to give a grime base to start the weathering on.

    Will let this dry till tomorrow then add the Logo ad Data panels back onthen to start the powders.

    Thanks for the support Guys
    You never really know if you do a good job or not till you hear it style
    Todays progress has seen the Panels placed backon in there new spot. it has also received a light dirt color over the inside of the wagon."The Doors that have been replaced also received a different shade of brown as 2 wagons where never the sam shade.[​IMG] [​IMG]
    Next job will be finishing off the internal walls and the logos will be given a wash of white to give a sun bleached affectin readyness fpr the external weathering
    ThanksDave

    Another Step closer tonight
    Started adding the color tonight to the model starting insides, As these wagons where an all steel Make the body started to go a reddish color on the insides. this maybe due to not being painted or only being painted only when new. As each wagon weathered differently I made the doors that where replaced a darker Red and the rest an orange rust color. but the photo doesn't show up the orange that well.[​IMG]
    once this was done I set about highlighting the replacement panels in the side. From prototype pictures they seam to be painted a light Gray to a mild Steel color.once this was done I then started on the outside of the wagon.
    using a mix of Weathered brown, Dust and old Tuscan Weathering powder to give an non uniform color, I set about covering all the side except the new panels as they would be done in a Iron Oxcide color like on the proto type.[​IMG]
    once this was applied in gave the wagon a quick spray with Isopropyl to let the pigment settle.
    Once I was happy with colors I started with the white wash on the logos and other panels on the body where they had to be highlighted. I also used another photo that I fould and weathered the other set of doors in another style to the rest[​IMG]
    Will let this sit over night before adding more, its looking more like the prototype every day now.Just need to decide on the load for this one now....

    More to come
    Dave

    After working out the right load to put in it, I came aross a photo of an empt one on a steel train.It had old timber and small sections of rusty steel in it Photos don't look as good as the real thing.
    [​IMG]

    I also Mentioned that I would show the other 3 wagons as well. I only decided to rebuild 2 others at the moment as the other will be used in a future project
    The first one is anther variation of plating that was placed on the wagons over the years[​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The second one shows the effects of the Concentrate on the sides of the steel wagons. as they only replaced them as they needed them wagons rn around the system like this for years[​IMG]

    Thanks for all the encouragement on this projectLooking forward to doing more How tos in the future
    CheersDave

    Looking good Dave. I like the sheet metal panels inside the wagon and the holes in the wagon sides of the door less NODY.

    Excellent.:thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    Cheers, Gary.

    Great thread on the build of the wagon so much more than just a bit of paint a truly uniquely example of what can be achieved with a little plastic surgery, repaint, and then the use of some colours variations and powers.

    I like the last one with the rusted out unplated sides
    Super nice job David :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

    The rusted one was done with 0.4mm Drills following prototype picture.
    As most of the rust was on the floor line of the sides I started drilling along that line, then worked up where I wanted it thicker. Once I got the holes dilled I started with a sharp blade and made the holes that are seen. once weathered use a mix of dark rust and orange rust powders to give the holes some depth to them.
    Might have time to do another wagon now....
    Just have to find one that not weathered

    Finally had time off work to take some better photos of the wagon
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    also had one other on hand to take as well

    Adding these to my 90s Container train does make an interesting variation to the in the normal Flats that you see on the trains today.
    Cheers

    Fantastic Dave. From the very fresh look of a new model to a highly distressed wagon, the difference is amazing. Great work. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:
