IRISH GEN VAN
You can read more about the DC Kits model in Model Rail issue 146 but, in the meantime, here's a few images of the finished van...
For now, only scale couplings have been added to the ends, complete with buckeyes in the dropped position (spare from a Heljan Cl33/1). Extra brake pipes and electrical hoses have been added from wire or adapted from various castings from the scrap box.
After weathering, some graffiti slogans have been added using a pack of Microscale decals (from C-Rail). A further coat of grime will tone these down a little. Only one side of the van has been treated thus, for a future book project that I'm working on - more as a demo of the technique than a recreation of a real vehicle.
