Hi, I have created this Blog to follow my modelling work. I Model NSW in HO scale to an era of 1990 to 1996. My aim is to Model the North Coast of NSW near where I live so my rollingstock is based around this. I have named this Blog after Killawarra which is one of my favourite locations and perhaps one day I may model this area. Anyway I hope that I may inspire others with what I do.
Cheers Justin Moy

Just been working on a whole heap of stuff. This Austrains WHX is one of them. Just thought to document the weathering process as I try to document everything that I am doing from now on.
The Process started with masking off the top walk way, Code Board and the R logo. I just cut the Tamiya masking tape to size on a piece of glass with a razor blade.
I then added the overall colour that I was after. This is a mix of Floquil Grimy Black and Rust and then lightened with some Rail Brown.
Once I had the right mix of colour from working off photo's I then got the brush out and started to paint and highlight all the details. From looking at photo's things like the steps no matter how weathered the wagon is were always painted white. many other details were also highlighted. Anyway the end result is a wheat wagon that looks like it is in Service
