What we do:

Weathering Service

We can weather any model in any gauge, whether you are buying it direct from us, or one you already have in your collection. Weathering can take on many different guises, whether you want a heavy in-service finish or perhaps a light preservation weathering or anything in between. We can do the hard work for you. We also offer a custom deluxe weathering service that can be modelled from photographs of real locomotives. The custom finish can be interpreted with dirt, rust, grime, soot, water, limescale and oil deposits and much more. Of course, weathering isn’t for everyone - our high gloss finish is a great way to give your model that extra special feel whilst keeping it clean. Just ask for our ex-works high gloss finish.
