NSWGR CDY / NOCY weathered open wagon

Hi all,

In this blog we take a look at an AR Kits NOCY open wagon. With smooth sides, this is an ideal wagon for weathering damaged sides and rust. The whole model was painted with a brush! I dont use an airbrush much for weathering, as the model sometimes can look over weathered and often the spray pattens and splatter can be seen from the airbrush, giving the model an unrealistic look.

I use soft brushes (often the cheap jobs) and thinned paint and build the layers up to give the effect of years of service.
