Further to the previous post, here are a few more images from the upcoming Model Rail feature on steel wagon loads. This detailed and repainted Bachmann BDA now carries an assortment of steel girders and sections. You'll be able to see how this was created in MR152.

This wagon load, from Ten Commandments, arrived in the post a little late so has missed out on featuring in the article in its finished form, but this is what it looks like when painted and weathered. It's a perfect fit for the Bachmann OBA or OCA. The product ref. is W184 and rrp is £4.00 - well worth it!

The plaster cast 'load' was primed and painted (Tamiya acrylic Titanium Silver') before a light covering of MIG Weathering Washes ('Oil and Grease' and 'Rust Effects'), all applied by hand brush. The washes settle into the relief in the casting, enhancing the 3D effect of the coils.

This is another cast load from Ten Commandments (ref W163), again fitting precisely into a Bachmann OBA/OCA. The wagon started life in EWS livery but has been sprayed over in Lifecolor BR Freight Bauxite prior to much weathering and distressing.
