Paint! That is looking fine Marty. For me the painting/weathering is the scariest thing to start when I am doing "metal" stuff. What did you use as a primer/surface prep on the brass?

The arty shot is excellent too!

Thanks Guys!

Volker & Unc, not to worry. The brass will get the proper "patina" to match the rest of the locomotive.
I am starting with an engine in fairly good shape.
It is much easier to weather a model that unweather it!
And remember this is a "progress shot, it aint done.

The painting was done with etching primer and Scalecoat paints.
I'm using engine & loco black and their clears where appropriate.
Also some other blacks here and there.

I hope to get the engine on next............

Thanks Dan
The reason for pictures of "that side" was there was no engine installed!

Here is a short video of the now installed engine in operation.
I hope the link works.

Nifty! And, now we know the rest of the story. Sounds like the engineering dept wouldn't let the public affairs photographer peek at the right side. But now all (almost?) is revealed.

Congrats, Marty, looks very good!

Don't tell me you're really going to leave the brass parts that shiny ...  Undecided

Volker

Patience, my friend!
If it has not been given a coat of clear laquer it will tarnish quit nicely in a couple of years. Especially if there are chemically blackened parts anywhere near it.

The builders plates arrived yesterday!
I wasted no time in getting it installed.

Again - MANY THANKS to Volker!

Here they are just out of their little black bags;


raw bronze, raw brass and FUD.

I ended up using the bronze. As far as I am concerned the FUD was useless for this.



Almost done! (for now)

That is so cool.  Nice job Volker.

Well that sure does make a loco look right.

Looks great, Marty! You should have told me that it was going to be mounted on a rounded surface Cheesy; it is no problem to make a bent CAD model.

What was the reason for using the bronze instead of the brass? The brass looks even a bit more crisp at the picture but this may result from lighting situation.

It is my dream to one day build a loco which will be called Dazed and Confused. Dazed on one side, Confused on the other! (Long live Zoso!!!!!) Now I know where to go to get the plates made.

Those look great! Refresh me on the process? Are the metal ones lost wax cast from printed wax?

I have a part I need in metal soon, and I was planning on using the Shapeways brass process. This looks very promising.
