Model Rail's new contributor gets off to an impressive start.
With copies of Model Rail issue 174 on sale this week, I've already heard a few positive comments concerning Spencer Pollard's feature on wagon weathering techniques. His unique approach has certainly raised many eyebrows and we're glad to have Spencer on board as a regular contributor to the Workbench pages. I built these two Parkside O gauge kits earlier in the year and, when Spencer mentioned some of his ideas, they seemed perfect fodder for his attentions - especially the 16t mineral. His attention to detail has really raised the bar as far as wagon weathering is concerned and these two vehicles now make my other stock look a bit boring!
As for SP's work for issue 175, I've just finished photographing the finished model and it looks great. Look out for a preview soon.
