Dirty Susan gets covered in coal dust

Yeah, I'm on a roll now.
Susan in her final grubby glory, less the yet to be painted driver. Three coats of Simon Green, and German Grey for the black bits. Followed up with a lot of dry brushed Red Leather and a wet wash of G**mes Workshop Charondon Granite; all acrylic. The front-of-cab bunker area was given a covering of coal dust, brought in and applied with a tea spoon. Carrying coal dust this way over freshly Hoovered carpets has an air of high-pressure school sports day. And later puzzles Mrs F. 'What's this black stuff in the cutlery drawer?'
*shrugs* 'I dunno , pepper?' Maybe I should have washed the spoon...


There maybe a break in proceedings for a while.
