This weekend turned out to be a drag…
Gotta love those drags! Nice!!
is all that weathering done by airbrush? and on the trucks too?
in any case, it looks spectacular.
Looks Great Tom. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Yes and no.
The wheels are brush painted. The trucks are either brush painted on RTR stuff and airbrush painted a solid charcoal gray on kits. They are then dry brushed with various colors. The cars are weathered in various ways. I dry brush streaks and rust. They are covered with washes. As a final thing the bottom of the cars including the wheels and trucks are airbrushed.
I am currently working on articles for weathering wheels and trucks. When they are done I’ll post information on them.
now I know why they stopped advertising on the sides of RR cars you couldn't see them anyway!
They look great!!! -- We'll have to find you more cars that represent railroads "outside" of the PA area
Great stuff Tom, like everyone else, I think your weathering is unequaled.:thumb: :thumb:
It's been 25 years since I worked loadout but, well I'm sorry but I'say every car on that train is overloaded . Damn nice modeling Tom!!
Great modeling, & great photos, Tom!
nice photos Tom
Wasn't that a Rolling Stones lyric? "What a drag it is getting coal" ? Can't believe I just wrote that! Great shots on another roll by Tom! That dusty crummy at the end is a nice final touch. I miss them!
Your "railfan" shots always make me....jealous!
Ohhh... quick!!! here comes another one!! **fumbles in bag for camera**
Damn thing's not turned on... **fumbles with on/off knob**
be quick.... focuses... zooms in.. zooms out....
Damn..... forgot to take the lense cap off. :curse: :cry:
Have to wait for the next one now....... wall1 when's it due?
Tom, you always seem to know when the next train is coming along and have your camera always at the ready. :thumb:
Another nice one, Tom. I take it the FA-1/FB-1 are not from Train Miniature, so I'll hazard a guess that they're from Proto, although I wasn't aware that they'd made that model Alco. I've always liked that paint scheme, too.
The FA1/FB1 locos are indeed Proto 2000 models. I am not sure off hand when they were released. The LNE models were a limited release or special edition. They did two FA1s and two FB1s. I picked mine up on EBay a few years back. The other set apparently was not produced in the same quantity and is more difficult to get although I keep an eye out for it.
You gotta always make sure your camera is ready, even though your driving down the road at 60mph
What a drag...!!! Great modeling! I'd just like to see a full view of that water tower. I got a couple that could use some rigging but I haven't the faintest idea of what this entails.
Keep up the good work!
