|CB&Q 85117, an old AHM model, was a flea market find. Much of the
detail is overly heavy, but I thought a little weathering would make
this appear less obvious. I added some decal data ( models of this
vintage lacked end lettering ), and then applied some acrylic rust hues
to the roof. PanPastels were used to tone down the sides.|
you railfan in an area that features an old pile trestle, you know that
you'll have lots of time to set up for your shots if you hear an
approaching train. With permanent slow orders in place, you will have
time to get your drone aloft and set up to photograph every piece of
passing equipment that catches your interest. That scenario could at
least partially justify the shots that accompany today's post, although
those antique covered hoppers look more than a bit out of place. They
must have been waybilled to a local railway museum!
truth of the matter is that our regional NMRA-WOD group is preparing a
virtual show-and-tell modelling session for the end of the month.
Members were asked to send in two or three photos of projects they have
been working on over recent months. My submissions involved these three
cars that have been given a little light weathering. Products used
included acrylic paints, Vallejo rust texture, and PanPastels.
|WAB 41100 is actually a car that I detailed, painted and lettered about
30 years ago. I recently took it down off the shelf and gave it some
attention in the form of acrylic paints and PanPastels.|
|CNA 419266 is an Intermountain car. The roof was brush-painted with
light grey dollar store acrylic paint, followed by drybrushed black and
rust shades. The sides were treated with PanPastel colourless blender,
and the dark patches at the top and bottom of the side panels were made
with Vallejo rust texture.|
