Scratchbuilt Timber Wagons
Using Accucraft wheelsets and various plasticard sheets and Angle, weathered by real rust by leaving metal scouring pads in water until they dissolve.
This is another IP Engineering wagon, weathered by Enamel paints watered down with thinners, and making care to ensure each plank is not quite the same colour as the ones next to it... The roof is some cotton sheet painted with the gunk from the bottom of the Thinners and some dark gray paint. Wheels are replaced with Accucraft wheels and axle boxes to lift the ride height slightly to match my other stock.
4 Wheeled Timber Wagons (Scratchbuilt)
These are IP Engineering Darjeeling passenger coaches, with the glazing removed and used sparklers as the metal bars over the windors. The roof is old shirts PVA'ed to the wooden roof and weathered. The chassis is painted in Humbrol metallic to give the impression of metal, and the weathering is a mixture of real rust and Tamiya weathering powders.
I have always enjoyed making and modifying rolling stock, so here we have a selection of scratchbuilt, kit built, and a mixture of both in our rolling stock section!

Running on Accucraft wheelsets and plasticard uppers, click on the picture for more details on how they are made.
Standard Andel Bogie Wagons
Scratchbuilt Open Wagons
Running on Accucraft wheelsets and made wood cut to size, normally lime wood from our local model shop, with either Tenmille or Accucraft couplings. Very easy to make, I'll post some scale pictures on the How To section so you can have a go.
