  • PRR XB kit

    A quick project, Amesville Shops PRR XB, lettered Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne & Chicago (Lines West).

    In the tradition of "happy little accidents", I primed with Vallejo Red-Brown, and then oversprayed Vallejo Amarantha Red. That was thinned too much, and didn't cover very well. But that gave me a -great- weathered car siding look. I drybrushed Rail Brown on the bottom of the car and other places the overspray puddled, then "Future", decals, Newton & Windsor matte varnish. Finally a light application of Pan Pastel to tone down the lettering.

    Dave, I share your frustrations! But, for the moment I am basking in the satisfaction of finally being able to 1. See the forum instead of 403 FORBIDDEN, 2. Login 3. Post a comment and a photo!

    Nice coloring on that kit.

    Hang in there, as some wit said years back...'We're entering new territory where the hand of man has not set foot.'

          Looks great Dave. But why are the photo's so small??

            Still learning what the max size is for an attachment. Guess I'm used to the restrictions from the previous software...

              Use the image icon instead of the camera icon and your picture will post in full size. Also, max picture size is 2 MB

                Jerry, if you click on Dave's little photso does it enlarge them? It does for me.

                  Dave,

                  Nice looking cars! Love the backdrop as well, good idea. I'm thinking of doing something a back drop for the Pleasant Valley Locomotive Works.
