Yellow Pelican Mining Co. - A couple of skips

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.

The skips look superb! I have a fondness for Shropshire as went to school in Oswestry, it is a beautiful part of the world.
