    Hi Chris

    I don’t know what you said to Rob, but I’m glad to hear you were so persuasive! :thumbs:

    We’re now all eagerly awaiting further developments. :)

    Lovely work on the wagon so far but I don't think we expected anything else ;)

    A marvellous technique whatever the scale, Rob.

    Well done!

    I’m not sure that the interior wood would still be brown/cream, Rob, rather than silvery-grey aged wood to be co-incident with the rust streaks from the bolt heads. Indeed, recollecting the wooden trailers I grew up with on a farm, the interior bolt heads seldom produced red rust stains in the hard wood, more usually dark rust stains. However, if that is based on a colour photo I would be very happy to be proved wrong - it does look interesting.

    Thanks Tim.

    Not looking to prove anyone wrong. Life's too short. No reference was made to colour photos. This is my take based on the colouring of the wagon as supplied and was really done to see what I could do with a basic palette of weathering powders.
