Good work, I wish I had the courage to weather my stock.

I started with cheap waggons and progressed to locos that I had no intention of using before moving on. I still want to do one more practise loco before I commit to one of my working ones so I am minimising the risk of messing up something I really like!

I haven't done a coach yet either but the same principle will apply with test pieces done before committing to an expensive coach.

The course is obviously worth attending. Your loco's look brilliant - well done. I'll also echo FB's comments.

Default Cheshire

I wanted to do a final practice weathering project before taking a deep breath and committing to one of my running locomotives but this time I wanted to do a green painted loco to test out some slightly different techniques.

I was very lucky to find a tender drive Cheshire on eBay a few weeks ago, which came without a tender and a missing boiler dome. i bought the Cheshire and found a R39 LNER tender to go with it so i would have a complete locomotive with no motor in it. I made a new dome from a piece of wooden dowel in the lathe and glued it on before a spot of paint to blend it in. Not perfect but good enough for the weathering exercise. I know there are bits missing and this tender may well have never been attached to this loco but it forms a perfect basis for the paint job.

The main differences with this loco are the fact that it is not as heavily weathered as the black ones I have done so far and the gloss of the paintwork needed to be selectively enhanced with some Johnson's Klear to give it the appropriate sheen.

Some parts I am happy with and some parts not so much. I am however now feeling confident enough to have a go at one of my running models so I need to decide which one to do. what standard of weathering to go for and dig out some colour pictures.

Really nice work. I'd like to have the confidence to attack an expensive model, but not being in the least artistic means I get mine done by someone highly competent .
