Hi all,

While lazing around, I came across a flatbed car with missing load and no wheels. Small cute model, I have no idea where it came from. Anyway, just what I'd like to do on a Sunday. So, I decided to discard the original bedding which is pretty useless with all those holes, and make a new one plus some weathering.

So here it is:

Take the model apart ... luckily I have more wheels than I'd need in a lifetime LOL

Cut out wood left over from another hobby of mine, that is wooden ship building ...

Glue pieces together with CA and sand down ...

Emboss and accentuate the timber using pencil ...

Apply clearcoat and glue to the car ...

Start weathering with diluted black enamel ...

Finalize with powder and matte varnish ...

... and we blow new life into an otherwise scrapyard car!

Could this be the flat car with Silo load from the Swiss 29516 starter set?

Certainly looks correct for the handrail details on the modified car. Good spot there ray.

Absolutely, that's the one!

Thanks for letting me know what it is, in fact I think I have the original load in some of my shoeboxes LOL

And here is the final looks of the car with timber load stolen from a Hag flatbed BigGrin

Let me give you another hint: the load glued using old nail polish leftover from my wifes stock LOL Nail polish is very very handy for glueing delicate stuff especially if placing of the thing to glue cannot be achieved at one go; like small flat stuff to a loco or something. The TCDD plates glued to the loco with nail polish, it was a breeze to place them on their exact locations with the tip of a hobby knive.
