Today's update shows how I modified and painted a couple of skips. The skip bodies are cut down and distressed Fleischmann Magic Train skips. I cut out 10mm from the main body and glued the two edges together with plastic cement before distressing the edges with my Dremel. In addition, I held the plastic models over an open flame and when heated, pressed a metal spoon into the edges to further distort the plastic.
Painting was done with acrylics and when dry, I used some rust weathering powders.
