SDS FMW Meat Vans

So another recent purchase at Liverpool was a pack of the SDS FMW Walkers meat vans I just can't resist a bit of bling and also the challenge of weathering them was to good to pass up again I used dullcote to begin and then a combination of thinned dark wash and thinned rust was to weather the body's and a little earth along the under frame. The washes really help to make all the details really pop out.

Enjoy cheers Jon

SDS Centurion Tank

So it's been a while I have been busy in my spare time wiring our new club DCC layout but have been back at the weathering lately so I will start with the SDS Centurion I have really been looking forward to doing this one.

So I started by lighting up the base coat with a bit of tamiya acrylic olive drab and Khaki thinned out to a wash and set to work with the AK Interactive washes mainly dark wash and winter streaking grime applying dullcote in between washes I also used a rust wash for the mufflers and used a dark steel pigment for the tracks.

Enjoy cheers Jon

Still here

So I was looking at my blog today and realised that its been around five months since I last posted oops sorry about that I have been busy though weathering and getting new models so I will try and post a few pics of what I have been up to lately but to start with here are some pics of my new Auscision Models 73.

What a fantastic model well done Auscision. Also I received my 422 class from Auscision another fantastic model I only had one minor problem with the 422 when I tested it I found the mech to be a bit noisy after consulting with some mates who also received them they ashore me that theirs were whisper quiet so i decided to investigate and found one of the wires from the switch for the headlights was dragging against the flywheel so i relocated it and fixed the problem.

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.

cheers Jon
