Hi guy's

About to start a 4446 project. I painted and weathered an AR Kits 44 class some 16 years ago for my mate Dave and ever since Trainorama released their 44 class, I have been wanting to redo one. It will be a big project but I am looking forward to it. 4446 was one of my favorites back in 1992/93 when it was running up and down the coast. I would always be on the lookout for it as it was the last 44 to be in the tuscan type livery and I managed to get it on film quite a few times. Here is the AR Kits model:

Here is the real one with these shots taken by Dave Porter
It wasn't the cleanest looking 44 around but it was one of my favorites.

This is the 44 that will become 4446

More Weathering Photos

Hi Guy's

Just had a long weekend thanks to a Shortage of Stock at Work, so I have been looking into some more weathering of my Auscision Opens and Vans. Still got a long way to go but thought to photograph the progress to take stock of where I am at regarding the weathering. The AKJY took about 2 hours just putting washes between all the ribs on the sides and then putting fine rust spots everywhere. The Green ABFX was much the same. The Red ABFX was just mostly washes and I haven't worked on the roof as yet. I will most likely just use the Air Brush to put on a darker colour most likely using Floquil Rail Tie Brown. Most of the washes used on these models was done with Rail Tie Brown. I added a little bit of Red in for some of the work. I used Floquil Engine Black for the washes around the Springs on the Bogies. Anyway here is the Photo's;

This last photo with be the next to get some brush work. I am happy with the way that the missing panel looks and there will be some mix and matches with some of the other opens and vans;
