Returning to the £5.00 wagon, I have now finished the paint job, added some lettering and weathering and a load of logs to go with other wagons I have. For such a basic construction I am happy with the result, especially when not seen in isolation....

Another triumph Peter.

It's a lovely wagon. I like the livery too, very nice.

All the best,

Andrew

And the colour co-ordinated load matches the livery too!

Agreed. Actually I thought the whole thing looks as though it had been parked for a couple of years on a forgotten rusty siding in an overgrown wood :roll: . Nice effect though.
