Model Rail (UK) - - Layout Hatch End -

I built two sets of 1959 stock for the Watford ser­vices. I cut a crenel­lated shape into Plastikard sheet (it looked like a cas­tle tur­ret!) and glued them to Class 101 DMU bod­ies. The crenel­la­tions formed the win­dow aper­tures against the clear plas­tic body and I sprayed the other side black to cre­ate a win­dow ef­fect. I ap­plied model filler to the roof and, when dry, sanded it to shape. To fin­ish, I sprayed it with two types of grey primer and used Fox Trans­fers for win­dow de­tails. All my paint­ing and weath­er­ing was done with a sim­ple Tamiya gas can spray gun kit, and I heartily rec­om­mend Phoenix Pre­ci­sion paint. With this type of work, ref­er­ence to pho­to­graphs of the pro­to­type is a must.
