Paint is coming!

Well, the wagon is finished. It’s my first ever etched brass kit! I’m not going to say it was easy although some bits were. I like bending bits of brass, cleaning them, in fact, I enjoyed everything except soldering them together. I bottled out of soldering the white-metal parts and used a cyano glue instead.

I have now sprayed it with an etched primer after giving it a good clean as instructed in the very good instructions.


I hope this will be painted olive green. I have some transfers from Railtec and I hope the wagon will go with the olive green departmental coach I already have. I am looking forward to painting the wooden planks and giving the wagon a good coat of weathering.

I’ll post a pic of the finished wagon soon.
