"45742, Connaught"

Was experimenting with some weathering techniques on my repainted Jubilee, 45742 Connaught (nameplates ordered and to be fitted when they arrive).

Overall I wanted the weathering to look darker and grimier than I've done previously, but my experiment hasn't really worked. However, the real coal in the tender does look the part better than the moulded coal, even if it's a little higher than it should be.

See what you think - it needs nameplates and front piping to finish, and maybe a going over with the airbrush again!

Until next time.
