Tanker Rollout

Heartened by previous favourable comments, the tankers have moved through the paintshop in Tripoli faster than a fat girl racing for the last pie on the plate. Having said that, the tankers look a bit Morris-ey now.

A simple khaki undercoat was followed by desert sand (Humbrol 63), a bit of grey for the tyres and windows, followed by some black lining .That’s it now until they have been played with for a few times and picked up some character. My detail brush is in the foreground. The black lining is done with a superdetail ‘0’.

The train-into-tanker conversion isn’t looking promising yet, but it’s early days. The Barbie pink will have to go!

    Those trucks are wonderful. With a coat of paint , one would never know they were not a commercial kit.


    • Thank you for the continued encouragement, Steve. The train has a coat of paint on it now, but no-one would mistake it for a commercial kit :O)

      Regards, Chris
