    This is a pic of a fictional, hydrogen powered, steam turbine locomotive I am working on. It is a little steam punk :)

    Suggestions for a paint scheme ?

    Very cool. Needs a couple of liquid-cooled machine guns on it. Maybe fold down armor plates on the windows with viewing slits?

    I have always been partial to bright red wheels :D

    I like the sample there!

    That sample looks good.
    How about dark green with red highlights, or dark green with gold highlights.:)

    I'm not against it. Maybe as an option - :)

    The green & gold looks pretty good

    I vote for the gold & green.

    That model is so excellent I can't imagine any color hurting it. A car with a troop carier towed behind might be cool. It really looks great!

    Thanks for the input, these are the schemes I like based on the suggestions. I may do a couple . . . or combine a couple. The black for the body, with a green tank for instance.

    I like all the color schemes but will side with Chris on the bright red wheels!:grin: (The model looks fantastic by the way!)

    Yes but you were probably singing off key with your buddies and waking up all the Alices.

    Gold and Green

    I really like the gold and green, but the bronze is a close second. I like red for the wheel spokes but gold or metal-colored rims.

    Very cool train. Keep up the good work,

    I would say that the texture for the copper looks the most realistic at the moment.
