  • Modeling Videos on You Tube

    Edit - After a discussion amongst the mods, it was decided that having a thread dedicated to members posting links to youtube model railroad related instructional videos they've found useful to be a good idea.

    We're moving the thread from the Crew Lounge to the Reference and Research Forum.

    A new thread will be started in the Classroom Forum where the mods will copy links posted here and paste to the Classroom thread.

    We hope that all of you find this topic useful and will add to often.


    Hi All,

    I came across this video which I was pretty impressed with. It is about weathering a freightcar. I think that they did a great job with the clinic and I see that they have a total of 72 videos on You Tube. Thought it may be something that you would enjoy!

      Andy, thanks for sharing. Nice video, I wish there was a way to download these and keep them on file. One can spend many hours watching these types.

        Andy, nice find and an even better idea a thread.

        If anyone else knows of any good how-to's on youtube or elsewhere, post them here.

        Just remember not to post any commercial videos if you're the owner or have any other involvement with a company.

          Guys here is a link to a friend of mine who is doing a video series on building a bridge and trestle, and showing how to install them and scenic them in. His name is Lex Parker.

                  If you are using a PC, you can use VDownloader a free program to download Youtube video to your PC. See http://download.cnet.com/VDownloader...-10888393.html. I have used it for awhile and it works well. Open VDownloader. Then, just highlight and copy the Youtube URL in browser, and it will be pasted into the VDownloader. Select the desired output format in VDownloader. Then just hit the "DOWNLOAD" BUTTON in VDownloader. It takes a while but results are good.

                    If you want to be able to get to it easily without downloading it, you can just create a "Model RR" folder in your favorites right on You Tube and add that and any other video to it. I have one for modeling, music, Proto RR, etc. Works great!![^]

                        I wanted to bump this thread back to the top to make everyone aware of the changes made to this topic.

                        Please see the edit added to Andy's original post.

                            This video covers a little on how to use the Hairspray method.

                            It's a method for chipping paint using an underlying coat of hairspray, and it produces "True" chips that look fantastic.
