Top plank painted to represent a replacement fitted during wartime. Not totally happy with the end result and may re-do this at some time in the future.
I like how this one turned out, given that it is a black wagon I thought it would be a bit of a pig to weather and make it look good. A combination of powders and washes, with a quick brush over with a fiber glass pen to polish the surface up.
Faded the lettering on this by judicious use of the fiber glass pen and then the usual powder and ink washes.
Again really pleased with this. I used some rusting compound for the interior and then lightly applied weathering to the oustisde, so as to represent a newish wagon in reasonable condition.
