CEMENT BY VAN

A dusty finish for a Dapol van. 


I've been having something of a weathering fest over the past couple of weeks, with a wide variety of freight stock given the mucky treatment. It has nearly all been out-of-the-box stuff that has been treated and it's interesting how some pretty basic models can suddenly look much more authentic after a bit of weathering attention. Normally, I'd have replaced the chassis on this Dapol gunpowder van but it's shortcomings are now less obvious - at first glance anyway!

Furthermore, for a change, I haven't used an airbrush on this van at all. Hand brushing with acrylics and weathering powders alone have been employed. There are a few more of these to do, and they should provide a pleasant contrast with my rake of Blue Circle Presflos...
