Weathering notes for Cross Country Voyagers

Mucky Voyager

Couldn't resist this - standing on the station last week, I spotted a Cross Country Voyager set opposite me. It seems that the automatic carriage washers don;t reach all the way down the bodysides so there is a very neat mucky band at the bottom of the tumblehome.

On a model you'd need to mask this line as it's so neat and straight. The colour is a greeny sludge with streaks. Not one from the Humbrol range but I bet Games Workshop do a "Grungy Green". You might want to sprinkle some talc in the paint to as the build up is quite significant.
