3mm Scale Van

This is a 3mm scale van. It's built from a Parkside kit in the same way as you would build the more common (& slightly cheaper) 4mm version.

The only difference comes at the painting stage. Whereas a 4mm model gets careful dry-brushing with lots of different colours, I've found that in the smaller scale this looks a bit heavy.

A simple wash of track colour is enough to give a nice finish. Nothing more needed. Pity really as I like weathering. Perhaps I should build some 7mm stock where I can really go to town !
