I have had this Peco O gauge wagon for many years, in fact it is my first O gauge anything, I was never really happy with the finish so when Gary started his weathering tutorials I thought I would have a go, I have used paint and powders to get the effects plus a product called maskol by humbrol but I will come to that later.This is quite photo heavy so bear with me, first the victim wagon. My first job was to rough up the paint and decals. Next using Railmatch rusty rail enamel paint I blobbed patches at random on the body. I took the opportunity to paint the wheels and axles at the same time. Once the rust paint had dried I used the Maskol, it is designed to mask areas you don,t want paint to get on, it dries quickly and feels like rubber, I dabbed it on top of the rust paint. Once the Maskol had dried I painted the whole body, taking care to leave the decals clear, with light grey, a closer match to BR freight grey. Next after the paint had dried, where the Maskol was I peeled the grey paint and Maskol off. One of the effects by doing it this way is that the paint lifts in the same way as the real thing, and the rust looks more effective, ideally I should have started with an unpainted body, cover it with rust paint of different shades, but I used what I had. Sorry for repeating a pic.Next I used a dye to give the whole body a dirty wash. After the wash and while it was still damp I dusted it over with weathering powders. I gave the chassis a light weathering though I might do a little more to it, one will see. I still need to do something with the inside yet, but it needs a lot of weight so I might give it a fixed load with some lead under it. Thats it for now, cheers, Pete.
