Well I finally got around to setting up a studio area for photographing my models so I've got no excuse now not to show you some, though I'm still waiting for the tent I bought of ebay to arrive so they are done perched on a Shapeways box!

Here is a model tipping skip car, ubiquitous on narrow gauge industrial railways but hard to model.

And here is an open coach

Both are done in WSF dyed my own mixes of Rit dyes with wheels fitted and both are now on eBay to try and make me some money so can buy some more models !

The WSF works well with that skip,gives it a nice rusty look.
Could you include a rule in the photos to give us an idea how big these models are?

Sizes are in the ebay link http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120738 713078&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT and http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120738 710628#ht_500wt_1156

Skip - Overall dimensions are 68 mm long and 33 mm wide over chassis. 59 mm wide over skip body and 45 mm high

Coach - Overall dimensions are 58 mm long and 48 mm wide over body. 65 mm wide over roof and 85 mm high

The WSF does work very well for the Skip, I'm quite pleased.
