The wood looks like wood and the wagons present a most realistic appearance. Well done Rik.

I felt a gasp in my breathing when I saw the finished articles Rik.... they are just amazing! You have mastered the weathering process with 'Honours', we need a 'how to' from you now.
Top marks... again!
Top marks indeed! There simply aren't enough superlatives to do these justice!

Wow..... That's very nice of you all, thanks folks. I have to admit, I hadn't intended simulating weathered wood - I was just weathering the grey painted wagons. A moral in there somewhere. This is the sort of standard I would love to reach, one day, in my imaginary future........ a bit of a journey to make yet.

I have that site bookmarked for my inspiration too. I have a long, long way to go to reach his standards.
