Scrap wagon loads created from... scrap!
Here's a quick look at a fleet of scrap metal wagons that I've created for the latest issue of Model Rail magazine (MR218 - on sale tomorrow). To keep with the theme of waste material being re-processed, these removable loads have been created from plastic salvaged from left-over kit parts, chopped up, painted and weathered accordingly. They were great fun to create, so much so that I've just bought another handful of Bachmann wagons to extend the rake further. The weathering of the wagons was also very rewarding, using a mix of acrylic paints and dry pigments (no airbrushes involved for a change!).
