Also I made a recent eBay purchase of a DJH 30T and have been busy doing some minor repairs and weathering see what you think?
I am also working on weathering my Austrains Fo set as well as the pile of other four wheelers that I have and will post some photos soon when I have finished.

|Single canvas roof|
I think I will have to do something about the roof on these ones maybe some tissue paper to represent the canvas
|I love the SRC's I am really looking forward to weathering these|
|If you weren't there on Saturday then you missed these|

A great model well worth picking up.
Also I have been busy weathering some more stuff lately I have been trying some more of the MIG washes that I used on the CW's on some of my other stock as well as some powders from Bragdon see what you think.
Austrains MLE finally weathered the deck was dry brushed with Tamiya XF20 and then dark wash applied then fished with powders and the steel load.
I applied a neutral wash from MIG over both of these and then washed it with thinners added a bit of powder around the bogies to highlight them a bit and a little bit of soot across the top of the white one I will still do a little bit around the sub frame but after Liverpool.
I will be there operating Waterfall on Sunday with the rest of the IMRA crew if you want to say hi. It sounds like it will be a great show I know I am looking forward to leaving with a whole heap more goodies I don't think the bank manager is though. I hope to see you there.

I picked up a new book today from train hobby productions Country Branch lines Part 5 Volume 1. The book is a photographic profile of the cross country line between Blaney & Harden and also includes photos the Grenfell & Eugowra branch lines. There are lots of great weathering shots of tankers, CW's, BSV's, LCH's etc and I would highly recomend it for weathering. Sorry about the bad photo.
