      Hi all 
      I finally made the last additions to the finish on my Danish contractor Carl Nielsen-loco sunday night. The loco is ready to serve my small gravel company Nystrup Grus as loco no. 8. Hopefully the loco will soon have a few feet of rails to see action on. 
       
      Here is a photo as an appetizer. More will be uploaded in the files in the coming days. 
       
       I hope it will inspire some of you to get going! 
       
      Regards
      Claus

        Hi Bill
        Thanks for the nice words. The body is painted in Humbrol 27 sea grey (matt acrylic) mixed with some 34 white to tone down the colour a little. The frame is 33 black mixed with white. Afterwards the loco was given a thin wash with artists oil paints (black and burnt umber). This gives variation and enhances detail if done carefully. The oil colours also add a warm glow to the otherwise 'sterile' Humbrol acrylics. The grey paint was applied from my airbrush while the oils were put on with a soft brush. The small scratches were done with dark grey oil paint and Vallejo acrylic. The Vallejo-range of paints is way superior to Humbrol when it comes to brushpainting. After the oil wash had dried I sprayed the loco very thinly with Humbrol light earth and finished with some ground up pastel chalk to represent dust and gravel particles. The paintjob was sealed with matt warnish.
         
        I hope this answers your question.
         
        Regards
        Claus
