Here's a 24 foot narrow gauge boxcar I just completed. It has inkjet printed cardstock sides, ends, and flooring. Scale 1:48. -- Russ

Russ,

Very Cool (Quite adequate as you say Grin). In reviewing these after my discussion with you, I think I have come to the conclusion, much of what I commented on may be caused by the lighting (direct sunlight).

I think this is a great result from all your hard work/experimenting with this stuff.

You should be very pleased.

Marc, you're only saying that because I fixed up the photos to look more like the actual model. (I burned in the overexposed parts.) But I am only partly pleased with the model. I will not be completely pleased until I can equal the quality of your work.

Now if I can only figure out how to add 375 three-dimensional n-b-ws to any model using nothing more than a computer and Photoshop! -- Russ

Have you experienced any fading due to light exposure?

Very impressive!  Looking forward to meeting you in Portland, and sitting in on one of your clinics.

Garry:

I have built about five inkjet printed cardstock models in the past three years or so. Fading or discoloration never has been a problem. But I leave no model, printed, stained, or painted, in direct sunlight or under fluorescent lighting. Under typical conditions (incandescent bulbs) I would estimate my models will last longer than I will.

Jerry:

If you do attend a clinic, be sure to heckle me and make a lot of wisecracks. Otherwise it will be pretty boring. After all, everything I say will appear in the December Modelers' Annual only the lucky readers won't have to look at me the whole time; there will be lots of photos to study instead of a live cadaver droning on about trivia. Should you introduce yourself, you will discover I am much more exciting in print. But infinitely cuter in person. Ask any beautiful girl wearing a thong bikini if you don't believe me.

I am impressed with the card stock structures Russ but I'm more interested in attending the clinic particularly if you will be having a beautiful thong bikini clad girl there to answer questions.

Archer Dry Transfers has some texture/bolt patterns you can use.

Also just catching up with this.

Russ,

Is the the cardstock impressed with the board siding pattern or is that an optical illusion from the printing?

Nothing on my cardstock models is phony. Some siding is scribed, some consists of individual boards. All trim is add-on. All doors and windows are built up from laser cut subassemblies. The only difference between my paper stuff and my wood or plastic stuff is that I can print artwork on paper but not on the other materials. -- Russ

  Russ,

 for my diorama I plan on the 2 modules opposite the mill several buildings as seen in the photo.

 

  It might be a nice comparisson to have a cardstock building in between the wooden ones I have to build.
  The problem is,  I do not have a inkjet color printer nor photoshop  and no direct photo's of comparable walls.
  If you could provide some printed stuff, I can scribe/emboss and built up the building and incorporate it in the scene.

Jacq, I would be honored to send what you need. We should discuss such things as board width, color, degree of weathering, trim, and texture. If you actually use any of my artwork, I will modestly take credit for building the entire diorama (including the new dam and, of course, all the machinery inside). -- Russ
