Covered Wagons – #1 The Wagons

Some time ago I brought two Avalon Line O9 scale open wagon kits. As you can see they are very simple to build, you glue the open wagon to the chassis and you’ve finished 🙂

I added a little bit of detail to each wagon: some rivet heads on the chassis, and a single rivet between the iron work and the lower plank. Here they are after a touch of primer.

Next the wagons were painted. To introduce a little variety I gave one a dusty grey weathering and the other a dirty brown weathering.

You’ll see I haven’t painted the inside of the wagons, nor have I finished painting the upper parts of the sides and ends of the wagons.


Perhaps, but hopefully the upper part of each model wont be visible. I want to make tarpaulins to cover the wagons….
