Satisfactory. -- Russ
Very , Very nice ..............
Could you share a little detail on how you did all paintings , especially the lining on the wheels, etc.
Only satisfactory ? ? Hmm, wonder what you need to do for something better than that ? ?
The painting was just air brushed enamel house paint, the cheapest I could find. Used Testors SAND for the undercoat which works brilliantly, then hit it with blue, or, the cream for the undercarriage.
The striping is usually done with Corel Draw to create whatever design I'm after, and then onto a clear decal sheet, using an ALPS MD 5500 printer.
With the Farmers Spring Waggon, the red and cream striping on the blue body, is from some railway decals I got from a friend, then the centre scrolls/swirls are from some 1/25th model truck decal sheets, as are all the other fancy scrolls/swirls on the undercarriage.
If you look real close at the red & cream lining, you can just make out that each panel is made up of 8 different decal bits, to create that one panel, four corner bits and four straight bits were required, very tedious cutting and pasting them, now the ALPS does them as one bit.
All the striping on the wheels, was done with the ALPS printer.
