MESSY MESS VAN

Grounded brake van has seen better days.


I knocked-up this excellent laser-cut kit the other day, from Ancorton Models. It's been on my to-do list for a year or two, so it's good to finally see it built and installed. 

Assembly took only an hour or so, having treated the wooden parts to various shades of oil-based wood dye beforehand. Picking out the individual planks in contrasting shades has proved worthwhile. It's looking very much at home in this corner of a goods yard, although I think I'll train some climbing vegetation up the walls to give it an even more neglected appearance. I had great fun building and finishing it - just the thing for a chilly, autumn evening by the fire!
