Dapol PO wagon weathering upgrade
Pretty standard techniques. First catch your wagon, attack with a fibre brush, colour match the bufferbeams, detail paint all the stripes, new wood, iron work etc. Add transfers from Model Master, wash with a bit of German grey. Voila! Dirty, pooled, end of life 13 ton uprated, but down-trodden BR wagon. No airbrushes were harmed during this project. I even used one of the BRM/Hornby 'free' brushes - before all the bristles fell out.
I think that if I had a favourite type of modelling work, this would be it.
