THE WEATHERED ONE
A weathered Class 450? Really?
You might think that Bachmann’s choice to offer a weathered Class 450 an odd one when you don’t see the real thing covered in rust patches and caked in dirt. Well, Bachmann has paid great attention to how the ‘450’ ages. The ‘450’s’ bodies are painted, whereas the sides are vinyl-wrapped. Therefore, the sides retain their colour but the roofs, which are painted, fade with exposure to the weather and carriage washing plants. Bachmann has replicated this and topped it off with a light coating of dirt.
