I like what you have done, Kim. I think the loco will look very good on your diorama. -- Russ

G'day Kim,
Geez, she's pretty ugly, but thats a good thing! 
Will look right at home waddling along between the rest of the interesting collection around the dock.  Doesn't really look like its built for either comfort, or speed Smiley.  The red front plate has a cool finish to it.

Gonna be ready for its first show shortly?

Cheers,
Dan

thanks everybody for your comments.
i have been playing around with a few different barriers for paint effects.the one i used for the red is vaseline.paint your flat base colour then apply a bit of vasline then your top colour.you can then either rub or dissolve the vasline to create a irregular pattern.another way for peeling paint is to apply rubber cement under the top coat[ rubber cement is used in the graphics trade as a glue].when all is dry with a blade peel away the cement creating a rugged pattern.
yes don i am off to the 50 year  anniversity of model railway exhibitions here in sydney at the end of the month.after 3 days 9 hours a day i swear i will never do one again it usually really exhaust me as i do it by myself.this year it is a big show 51 models plus trade i am tucked away in a little corner next to a huge digital n scale layout ,talk about chalk and cheese.
anyway again thanks for commenting
kind regards kim

I suppose the three rail display has a perverse kind of charm but Blue Top Salvage, to my eye, utterly obliterates it. Satisfactory work, young Kim. Satisfactory, indeed. -- Russ

Hi Kim the new loco look just like is was built from a pile of salvage, and will no doubt fit right in.

It has that look of something built by a team from a TV series called "Junk Yard Wars" or something like that title, that I remember watching many years ago.
