OO9 WAGON BUILDING
With Warley fast approaching, I've been trying to finish my OO9 gauge NCB train in time to display it on the Model Rail Stand. As of today, the rolling stock is complete, with just a load of pit props to be added to the open wagon. I've been airbrushing Com-Art and Vallejo acrylic paints, using a pre-shading technique to accentuate the relief on the bodyshells (demo in MR issue 159). This is a very effective way of weathering the model before it has even been painted, with the shading showing through the topcoats. After lettering by hand, using a Rotring draughtsman's pen and white ink, a clear coat has been applied to seal everything in place.
