If Thomas and Sons is an engineering works it will need supplies of raw materials. I’ve spent a happy few days creating some wagon loads to represent raw materials of various shapes and sizes.
The ‘metal’ is plasticard sheet and sections painted in Humbrol ‘Steel Grey’ or ‘Aluminium’. The wooden supports are made from pieces of coffee stirrer and matchsticks painted in diluted black and dry brushed with light grey.
They look good in the wagons.And, obviously, I can swop they from wagon to wagon.Nothing fancy, but a lot of fun to make and I think they will complement the loads of ‘finished products‘ that I made last year.
Perhaps you prefer the other type of Heavy Metal… if so here’s some Motorhead.
