Modelling Tip Of The Day – 3


This Modelling Tip Of The Day is a new article series, in which we’ll be posting a modelling tip that may be of use to the newbie right up to the seasoned modeller.

Today’s tip is:

Scrap loads. To replicate a steel scrap load use aluminium kitchen roll cut up into random sizes. Scrunched up into crumpled pieces as well as making them into crumpled squared cubes. To weather them use the like of Deluxe Materials Instant rust or weathering powders. To fill a wagon you only need to do a top layer of steel scrap bales. Use a piece of foam or card to fill in the rest of a wagon, thus giving an impression that the wagon is fully loaded.
