All of the decaling that I'm going to do is done


finished this side. The other side looks the same but without any graffiti. maybe I'll paint a stylized SL&L

next, starting on the trucks and wheels and couplers

These trucks started off as all black plastic.




progress includes; silver where the wheels contact the track, two different browns, then touch up the silver again

Looks good man. The work on the trucks is basically what I did. I finished mine off with some rust colored chalk dust I scraped off a chalk stick.
The SL&L graffiti is sick...........

yeah, yours came out BOSS!
I noticed the wheels on that and got the idea of how to achieve that look on mine. The painting is done on both sides as of this morning and I just need to get to the LHS and buy some Testors Dullcoat and pastels to finish it

working on a display track segment now

Looks real. The spots look more lifelike than the streaks I did. I'll steal that idea for another day.

Thanks dude. After work today, we drove up to a Michaels and I bought one can of Testors dullcoat and one can of art fixative.
Planning to do some tests on which product is compatible with what paint and which is duller, I mean dead, flat dull. That's what I want

Hi KoSprueOne,

Great job on the graffitti and the roof! Will you tell us about your process for the rust?

I have tried fixer and Dullcoat. Dullcoat is slightly duller, but you'll get far more squirts per dollar from the fixer. Only thing I recall about the fixer is that is not formulated for models and I recall it had a slight texture to it. YMMV!

the roof was done with acrylics in three steps with three colors.

- Large spot of a light rust color

- smaller spots with medium rust color

- then, small spots with darkest rust color

thanks for the tips on the dull coat mediums

Dude, now YOU are the master. "I think it sort of looks like the prototype." Shut up!

"sort of" ........man, you're killin' me. Looks exactly like the real thing.

I didn't have decals and couldn't find find transfers in my stash that could look like the rest of the text and numbers on the sides so I left them out

Your results are what the rest of us strive for. Masterful! The rust effect on the roof is the Cherry on the Sundae. Maybe you should post those on RailcarPhotos and see what they say to that.
