A little help for my friends…

I’ve completed some models today for a couple of friends who wanted weathering jobs done. I’ve got to say the new generation Farish 37 really has its beauty brought out by some thoughtfully-applied techniques.
In both scales, the techniques are roughly the same with over sprays of acrylic, oil washes and dry-brushed enamels. With the Claytons I used TCut to remove the heaviest paint deposit and create depth to the overall appearance of the loco sides.
If you really want a rough appearance on a diesel you can even use a fibreglass pen to remove sprayed weathering. This is definitely a more advanced technique all the same.
Perhaps best reserved for late 1960s Western Region modellers!

    Short of the first day out of the Works – when did you ever see a clean Clayton? These are great Dave, capturing the overall condition and patina of the Claytons as I remember them (before the St.Rollox scrap line days).
