AUSTRAINS NSWGR LHG GUARDS VAN

After receiving an LHG on the weekend I thought I should weather it and put it into service. Weathering was done in the usual way, thinned Floquil paint grime, then mud, then a bit of grimy black. This paint is getting very hard to get so when it runs out I’ll have to experiment with something else. The roof I repainted with Tamiya acrylic aluminium thinned with Isocol, the body is masked then the roof is carefully spayed, to finish the roof thinned grimy black, then grime, then Testors dullcoat with a dash of engine black applied. After drying, pastel chalks are carefully dry brushed where necessary to highlight certain areas both on the roof, sides and ends, taking care that none of the detail goes missing. The model itself is pretty good and I have kept the original wheels but changed the couplers to Kadee scale whiskers.  That sums up a few hours work I hope this is helpful to some happy modeller.
