I was surprised to find that the Unit Models wagon had a lot more surface texture than was apparent in bare resin form, and not all of it looked too convincing, so I soothed out the sides a little where required, back to resin in places. At this stage the wagon looked a mess and I seriously considered not going any further with it. Common sense prevailed and using Games Workshop Foundation series 'Charadon Granite' paint, lightened a little, coverage was no problem, although a second coat is always worthwhile. Metalwork was picked out in a off-black mixture and the inside in a natural wood colour. The whole lot now has a coat of Vallejo matt varnish to protect it ready for the inevitable assault of weathering.
Meanwhile, the soldering iron has been in use again lately, but Ill leave that for another day, got to scoot...!
