    How's all? As someone who's had a lifetime's worth of looking at ballast wagons, both real and small, I thought I'd try and get them to look closer to the real thing.

    Basic technique was a wash with goauche, deep brown and some Paynes Grey. As soon as is this is dry, most is taken off again just staying around joints and places where grime collects. Then some weathering using the AK Interactive range of weathering pigments. No airbrushing used, they never accumulated the level of track dirt that bubbles or any other stock received.

    That's got to be the single most realistic weathering effort that I've ever seen.

    And - as we know here - there is SERIOUS and plentiful competition for that title!

    Never argue with an idiot. He will bring you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

    I'm not sure a wagon has ever been described as beautiful before but that's the word I'm going to use here. Just superb weathering produced there and by the sounds of it by using a very simple technique. Bravo.
