3 Aitch Wagons - decaying the Sow's Ear

Postby Rob Pulham » Mon Apr 04, 2016 3:43 pm

For the last couple of weeks modelling has taken a back seat to gardening, and no that doesn't mean anything further has been done on the Rhubarb Triangle. It's been gardening up North.

I did manage a bit of time at the bench though and those of you who look in the small adds on various forums may remember me advertising a couple of 3 Aitch wagon kits that I had bought from the Guild E&T lists?

There wasn't any interest in them as they were so I decided to build the second one and add some detail and decay to them to portray them as condemned wagons ready for breaking up.

The first one was the 5 plank version that I had already assembled. I added a false floor (made from some styrene planked sheet that came with my Dragon models Caledonian single Bolster kit - I must ask Chris Basten for the source of it because it's actually quite good stuff). Over that I added inner sides that were scribed and washer plates etc. added to. Finally after painting I found various bits and bobs of scrap junk to add a bit of interest inside.

Unfortunately we have had storms here today which have resulted in odd lighting that has enhanced the reds in the rust which are much more subtle in reality. - Apologies too for the photo overload, I was struggling with the light and liked them all.

Because I hadn't assembled the second wagon I had a bit more scope with what I could do with it and Chris suggested an opening door. Out with the Olfa cutter to add the planking detail inside and to remove one of the doors. A bit more hacking and assembly gave me this.

Thanks Alan,

They turned out pretty good for such basic kits, much better than I had hoped for when I started.
