This is the Weathering Gallery, which shows some of my work on various models such as locos, coaches, wagons, etc.
Weathering is a very subjective subject and I'll try and give some information on what has been used on each model, such as transfers, nameplates, etc.
Heljan Class 37/4, 37425 Concrete Bob
This is a Heljan Class 37/4 in BR TTG Construction Sector Livery as 37425 "Sir Robert McAlpine/Concrete Bob" Custom loco transfers by Railtec, Plates by Shawplan and then detailed weathered as an 'in-service' loco.
Dapol Class 08, 08630 in EWS Livery
A Dapol 08 finished in EWS livery as number 08630 and weathered as a slightly faded loco after being in service for a while. I've also changed the Dapol vacuum pipes for Slaters vacuum springs, the whistle has been changed for a DJ Parkins horn, and finished off with front and rear wipers. Also fitted with a ZIMO MX644D sound decoder which is loaded with a Paul Chetter Activedrive sound project with Speed Lock and Active Braking. This is coupled to a 3w bass reflex speaker and a Gold Cap stay alive.
Heljan Class 50, 50034 "Furious" This Heljan Class 50 is finished in L/Logo blue livery and numbered as 50034 "FURIOUS". Weathered as a dirty 'in-service' example, it has been fitted with DCC sound as well. Fitted with a ZIMO MX696KS Sound Decoder loaded with a Paul Chetter class 50 Sound Project through two speakers, a Visatron in the tanks and a bass reflex cube inside the body. It is also fitted with a Gold Cap stay alive. I have also replaced the High Intensity headlight with a brighter version and made it separately switchable from the marker lights. The tail lights are also separately switchable and all of the lighting is directional with a single button press. I have also got the roof fan working in conjunction with the roof fan sound on the same button. Below are some pictures of the finished article.
Heljan Class 60, 60100
This is a Heljan class 60 finished in the attractive DB Schenker Red/Grey livery and finished as 60100. This loco started out as an EWS example and it was stripped down and then the original paint stripped off. Parts were painted in the correct DB colours and then Railtec custom transfers applied. Once varnished over the loco was re-assembled and then weathered very lightly as the customer passed out on this particular engine!!! The loco is fitted with a ZIMO MX696KS sound decoder, loaded with a Paul Chetter class 60 project. This is through two speakers, one in the tanks and one inside the body. The decoder was set up with the following lighting combinations, all separately switchable and directional: 1) Marker lights each side 2) Tail lights 3) Daytime headlights 4) Nighttime headlights 5) Tail lights on both ends (Parked on shed)
