The present day ones around Salisbury are pretty free from dirt, washed but not polished, unless new.  I see similar looking vans as I travel round the country.  Is that an indication that the PO has an altered policy, to clean the vans more regularly, or is it just that vehicle paints and metal treatment have improved?

Regards

Eve n though that one is muddy and it appears sunny I would guess it left the depo clean that day and ran through some muddy back lanes, I can clean my cars and get muddy quite easily where i live so i am guessing they are the same.

FYI I actually used real mud (plus other more usual products) on a couple of my vehicles for a muddy loo and you need a light approach to get a film because when it builds up it looks iffy, although I keep meaning to try it on tractor and see how authentic i can get it to look.Sand is far too big sand won't work, and our fine clay is probably only just passing muster. I also plan to put some real mud on my river edge mixed with PVA and see how it looks, plus the biggest advantage is, it is free 😃

2365 The RAC vehicle which is just mud should past muster, but a couple of modellers thought it did not look authentic.

maybe I should have claimed it was a modelling product (which it is if your a potter 😃) as opposed to some who might claim I am just potty LMAO:

Dalton Highway : from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay, his trucks ...

I keep meaning to model his one, others have done it before me though

A small pile of talcum powder on the pallette is a nice way to "bulk up" the muck and keep it in scale. It does not negatively affect your chosen colouring too much either
