yes, when I eventually get round to it I plan to use everything, I'd never really built many kits before so building a bunch was a great learning curve

been a while since I've posted on this forum, so here are some bits that I've been up to in the past week, been working to improve my airbrushing and painting skills, all comments and thoughts welcome

I was originally going to paint these coaches BR maroon, but I happened across a thread with techniques on how to paint "teak" and after giving it a go I was really pleased with my results

Ooh, very nice! That 4MT is particularly stunning. Nice work with the teak effect too, a technique I have yet to attempt, but would like to accomplish (not that I have any particular need to, but that's not the point). Keep it coming!

Great weathering, the BR standard tank is exactly as I remember them, well done.

Your weathering is top notch! All your effort has definitely paid off. Im also really impressed by your teak paintwork. Did you have a link to the method for how to paint it?
Cheers,
Josh

I rather liked your Teak, too. I did mine with Citadel Seraphim Sepia [silly name!], what did you use?
