Some of my completed projects.
First up two factory painted Bowser RDG covered hoppers with weathering added.

Two more Bowswer units that started as undecorated models.Painted mofw gray,decaled with highball graphics and weathered.

All four units.

A couple of RDG 50ft boxes.Both are Accurail models.The double door started as an undecorated model and the single was painted IC and had to be stripped.Both units were painted using SCII RDG green,decals from Highball Graphics and weathered.

Chris, your weathering technique is terrific. I like the subtle way that you've made the cars look aged, but not overly so. Excellent work.
potsy Posted - 12/06/2018 : 10:03:43 AM
Chris your rolling is excellent but can't help admiring your scenery also great job

Hi Chris. Great modeling. Especially like your green gondola's
CavalryTrooper25 Posted - 11/25/2015 : 1:10:46 PM

Super nice looking cars.

Really like them!


BurleyJim Posted - 11/25/2015 : 08:42:31 AM
Excellent looking work, and really nice photographs of it.
2771-chris Posted - 11/09/2015 : 12:04:48 PM
Next three units represent RDG class GHv & GHy class gons
38789 GHy a P2K unit that came decorated for the GBW.The model is close to the prototype but not spot on,14 ribs compared to the RDG's 13.Close enough for me.I removed the lettering and painted over the factory yellow.Also added the top chord.
Both side shots of unit.

Loaded unit.

GHv 65's...came decorated for B&O pipe loading.Removed lettering and masked the interior before painting,liked the look of the white interior.



Well...I'm done and thanks for looking
2771-chris Posted - 11/09/2015 : 11:29:56 AM
Bruce,thank you. I'll continue with the next two completed units.Both are MTH offerings that were factory painted for the RDG.I wasn't pleased with the reading application,seemed the letter were too big in my minds eye.
The following pic has the factory painted unit sandwhiched between the two redone units.

After they were stripped with Scalecoat paint remover I used the same materials as on the previous gon 29215.

Weathered interiors and coil wire loads.

Three RDG gons with wire loads.The black unit is a P2K model I did years ago.

Good looking cars.

Very nice painting, decal work, and weathering!
2771-chris Posted - 11/09/2015 : 10:50:07 AM
I completed a couple of boxes and gons the last few weeks.First up a couple of RDG 50ft boxes from the XMz class.The units started as undecorated Accurail models.SCII boxcar red was used,decals from the readingmodeler and weathered with pan pastels & aim powders.
115311 L&R side views.

115345 L&R side views.

Coupled together.

My next unit is a so called foobie although its based on a RDG 46' gon.I wanted to use the Walthers 46' offering but couldn't locate one.I had an Accurail 40 sitting on the self so I decided to go for it.
Before painting I added the reinforcement bracing to the top rail using EG styrene angle 291 and notched it out with a straight razor.The unit was painted using SCII RDG green and the rail was hand painted PS RDG yellow.Decals from the readingmodeler and weathered with the usual powders.

29215 side one and two.

29215 with a load.

More gons to come.

Those are some very nice looking cars. You did a heck of a good job on them.

Thank you for the compliments.The photos were taken on my 2x8 diorama I built a few years back.My 12x12 is in the planning stages encompassing the RDG's last 10 years.I grew up in the coal regions of Schuykill County Pa. and plan to somewhat duplicate some of the scenes from those areas in the fall season motif.
Again,thank you.
dave1905 Posted - 10/27/2015 : 4:36:53 PM
Nice job.

Actually with the amount of weathering they would be 70's to the end of Conrail. Especially since all the built/repack dates on them are the late 60's, early 70's.
CavalryTrooper25 Posted - 10/27/2015 : 12:33:00 PM

Not trying to take over for Chris, but these cars would be 60s, to the end of the Reading lines.

Very good weathering work on the hoppers & boxcars! What era are your models supposed to represent?
