You can almost taste the tobacco smoke and touch the threadbare upholstery as TIM SHACKLETON evokes the unique character of carriage stock from a bygone age using simple weathering techniques to fade the paint on a series of Hornby Maunsell carriages.
In the latest issue of Hornby Magazine - HM168, June 2021 - includes a step by step guide to weathering the BR Class 20 Bo-Bo diesels using a Heljan 'O' gauge model. In this video Mike Wild talks about the project and demonstrates the finished model in natural light on the Hornby Magazine garden railway.
For our latest video weathering guide Mike Wild looks to his wagon fleet and demonstrates how to create a weathered wood effect deck for a Bachmann 'Warflat' wagon as well as chassis colouring for a realistic finish. Join us in the workshop on video now.
