    Alan,
    You are very kind. My technique is to copy good colour photographs of the real thing, ensure all aspects of the scene are a uniform, harmonious style, fade or weather all colours, and take my time. I like your weathered wagons, especially your GWR Toad.

    Regards,

    Chris

    Judging from prototype photos, the amount of Firemen who used to drop their short-handle shovel in that top rear handrail, you'd think the designers placed it there just for that use - not to assist climbing the side of the bunker!! :)

    Attached are some photos of a Minerva 0 gauge Kerr Stuart VICTORY 0-6-0T that I have recently weathered for a customer. The brief was to simulate the effect shown on the prototype photo of FRANCES. It was a something of a challenge, but I hope I have captured the appearance of the real thing. NB the cylinder drain-cocks are not attached for security in transit.
    Regards,
    Chris

    I should have called this thread "Chris Klein's 7mm Scale Stuff". Here is a humble Minerva 0 gauge RTR Iron Mink that I have dressed for its new owner.

    I have weathered a GWR Match Truck converted from a Minerva RTR OPEN A. Here it is on Cwm Bach including a photo of the wagon with the over-hanging timber load that started all the fuss. I'm rather pleased with it, but may add some garnish in the form of a couple of timber baulks and some coiled rope.

    Regards,
