Hornby D16/3

The kids have gone to Granny and Grandads so the airbrush has been assaulting things. Which means I can follow on from my last informal weathering lesson with Number 2.

The message this time is leave it. Spray your model, work it back but nothing too  detailed and then let it settle. 48 or 72 hours is enough. It gives your model time to calm down and that buzz you get to wear off and refresh your eyes.

Chris taught me patience is a virtue in modelling. As is bodging.

Here is a Hornby D16/3 settling down on the oven hood (who needs dioramas) between her initial first take and the more detailed finishing to come later.



Off to the NRM tomorrow. If you see a seriously good looking lad with a glamorous wife dripping sophistication and charm that will not be me. I will be looking at the class 31, next to me a wife with a face of thunder.

Have a great weekend folks.
