Dirty Crane

Last Sunday was bright and dry where I lived, so I didn’t waste any time and decided to get on with some airbrushing which I had needed to do. The snowploughs needed to get a coat of varnish so that they could have some decals applied, but I was also able to weather my excellent Bachmann Crane.

This had 3 applications of colour starting with frame dirt, then dark rust followed by weathered black. All of these paints were Railmatch enamels applied by airbrush.

I was also able to weather my 2 support coaches, an old fish van and what I think is a Gresley Brake. I do need to source some transfers for the coach if I can.

The Crane should make it’s exhibition debut at the Norwich Model Railway show on April 4th where it will be running on Kelvin’s layout Copsey. The crane will only be seen in the afternoon when we will feature stock more associated to the BR blue and grey era’s.
