  • Nice thread Bob. Some amazing 3d sla mods there! Your structures are great also!



    • Phillip, Thank you. In appreciate your comments.

      Here is a video I shared at the conference of the Virginia and Truckee Historical Society.

      I also shared this picture which demonstrate the necessity of considering the light the model will be viewed in when selecting the model's paint.

      The paint historians told me to aim at a Dr. Pepper can as a close example for Baldwin Wine. Others suggest two paints Vallejo Cavalry Brown (the bottom control strip square) and Tru-scaler TCP-132 CGW/Soo Maroon (the top square). The picture on the Bottom was taken under florescent light and the one on the top in daylight. You can readily see how the source of light affects which is closer to the color of the soda can. My layout light are daylight bulbs where as my workbench and staging yard are under standard florescent lights.

      That's all for now

      • Bob,

        It's fantastic seeing your locomotives in motion. Thank you for the video.

        The color comparison is really quite striking.

        • Thank you, Mike. I'm glad others like seeing them run. My video techniques leave a lot to be desired.

          Thanks again
