These guys are quietly waiting for my friend Trevor to visit next week so they can take up residence in their proper home.
The technique is a variation of the method described in the Tichy flat car instructions. I start with a coat of Foundation, any tan, beige wood colour will do. Let that cure for a few days and then I come in with oils and streak in a couple different brown colours and add lots of black ink wash. The technique can be altered to represent treated or non-treated timbers very easily.
The running boards have not been added because Trevor likes to add his own real wood running boards.
Handsome models, even if I do say so myself.
