It's my latest project. I've assembled one of Burl's resin kit cars and had Stan print my decals.




Enjoy,

Thanks Marty,

I thought Aristo track would weather itself over time.....am I wrong?

My whole railroad is elevated on wood so I really don't want to put ballast on it as it would only cause the moisture to be held for a longer time.

What I really need to do is bring some of my cars over to your place and take pictures of them there!
Now that would be cool!......too bad you live soooo far from me.

I'm not selling it.....I'm hoping to enjoy it for a long time.

It will, but slowly.

Marty paints his rails, with great effect.

YEP!!! Oh man, that's no fair!! I need like 12 of them!! One of these days I'll find some time to order a few and assemble them!!


The color looks real good as well. Mind sharing what brand and color you used (spary paint, or polyscale airbrush, etc) just incase, for future reference :)

Thanks!

Thanks Guys,

Ray, I just use Krylon primer (ruddy brown) and spray clear gloss over it to apply the decals, then coat it with clear matte after the decals.

Regards,
Brian

Nice of them to make primer in such nice railroad colors.

My dad was restoring a Studebaker when I was little. He got as far as fixing the carberator and painting one fender purple. He could still take us for rides.

And it's always so hard to choose among somebody's modern freight car, somebody's narrow gauge loging contraption and Chris Walas'  flights of fantacy.
