    As this is a how to as well as a competition I will give a blow by blow of how I do it, first up is the wagon I have chosen, it is a second hand kit built white metal planked LMS model I have had for a while.

    I am going to try some weathering paint's/ink's stuff I bought from Warley last year, not used them before so it will be a learning curve for me too.

    Well that's my offering, watch this space :thumbup:.

    Pete.

    Now I wouldn't have been suprised if our lord and master had sent a few wagon kits out for test / training purposes, mind you they would have had to had the brake gear fitted before weathering :avatar:

    Watching as well Pete, now don't let the pressure get to you with a world wide audience.

    I have removed the LMS letters and numbers ready to start re-doing it to suit my period and make it look more in keeping with Wheeldon.

    [​IMG]

    I masked off the body (though to be honest I could have left it), and sprayed the lower half satin black, ('cos that was what came to hand first).

    [​IMG]

    I let that dry for a while then started painting the iron work various browns, it will become obvious why when I move to the next stage.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Well thats it for now, once its dry I will carry on.

    Cheer's, Pete.

    Now that the rusty paint has dried I have put Maskol on the iron work.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After letting that dry over night I painted the wagons upper body a Bauxite-ish colour.

    [​IMG]

    Later, this afternoon, I peeled off the Maskol to reveal the rusty ironwork underneath, it also lifted the paint which gives a realistic peeling effect.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Quite a while ago I accidentally splashed some MEK solvent on some acrylic painted plastic, the effect was the paint crinkled and gave a pleasing weathered wood/paint effect, so I have given it a go on the wagon, I think I should have left the paint to dry for longer as it didn't work quite as I wanted, it doesn't look bad but I will try again tomorrow.

    [​IMG]

    Thats it for now, cheer's, Pete.

    G`day Pete,

    That iron work with the paint peeling off looks great...:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    I just realized if we were talking about the real 1 to 1 world, we would be saying that wagon needs some work around the iron work.?????:avatar::avatar::avatar:.

    Nice work Pete.....keep it coming.!!!

    Just curious Pete, have you ever used the salt technique on your O gauge stock for blistering paint ??

    Cheers, Gary.

    Didn't realise it was the best part of 3 weeks since posting :eek:, anyhoo I've done some more on my wagon.
    First I gave it a sprinkling of brake dust colour using the new paint/inks.

    [​IMG]

    Then a wash of frame dirt and mud wash.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    While the wash was still damp I gave it a dusting of weathering powders, a mix of brown, black and grey in different amounts, mixed on the brush.

    [​IMG]

    Thats how it stands at the moment, I've got some more to do to the inside, then letter it up as an internal user, I will see if I can find a colour photo of the prototype as an example.

    Cheer's, Pete.

    Don't know if I'd want to stand too close to that wagon you never know what you might catch, and I don't think it would come out in the wash :avatar:

    Nice job there

    Looking forward to seeing this wagon with its lettering
    You have definitely archived that unloved look

    The wagon looks like it's been left at the end of the engineers siding to see out its days. Only thing missing is the ivy growing through the wheels and brake gear

    Nice job Pete:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    PS. Pete it may be worth taking out side to get some good photos when your ready to show off all the tone variations I don't think the workshop lighting dose it justic.

    Dunno if I'm too late but here is my finished wagon. First up the interior, I painted over the original black with a light grey making sure that some of the black showed through in the brush marks, then I dry brushed some Humbrol 63 acrylic, followed by Humbrol 402 acrylic, then Humbrol 53 gunmetal enamel to high light any grain/brush marks.

    [​IMG]

    Because there are no transfers,(to my knowledge) for these type of wagons, I painted on some of the markings and used number decals to letter it up.

    [​IMG]

    I gave the wagon an overall wash of very thinned down mud colour to tone down the lettering and interior, cut a couple of battens from a firework stick and that's it done, a few more pic's, a couple taken out side on Chris's suggestion.

    [​IMG]

    That's it folk's, The outside photo's do look good I must admit.

    Cheer's, Pete.

    Nearly forgot, I found a couple of photo's taken at Staveley works in colour of similar wagons.
