Borkum Match Light Railway - the Workbench thread

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Does anyone know anything about the colours on these wagons ?

Only remaining powder wagon has evidence of red and "some kind" of yellow on the doors. But question is how they were painted while still inside the Arsenal. ..?

Put on paint the other day.

Next is a proper roof and lettering to make it finished!

Put on black around the frame and end beams. Bogies in place, couplers installed. New proper roof made and painted.

Lettering - not so much ... No problem cutting them, the Curio machine could have made them even smaller. The problem is to let the letters out without damaging the sheet so you get a good stencil to work from. Made several attempts in both 0.25mm and 05.mm styrene. Sometimes I managed to get out a few letters from the sheet but never all of them. The sheets just are to soft for this, doing it by hand. Anyone, any luck with making stencils, with our without a cutter ?

So something looking like the original buffers and lettering left to do.
