SV: [FS32NGModelrail] Danish loco finished
- Hi BillThanks 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.RegardsClaus
- It gives me great pleasure to announce the reopening of my website, "Micro
Layouts for Model Railroads" at its new home:
As a special bonus, the featured layout is John Glenn's new version of the
ever-popular Guinness Brewery railway in Dublin, including a drawing and
model of their unusual diesel locomotives. John's model is to 1/32 scale,
using HO gauge to approximate the 22" (540 mm) gauge of the original.
Thanks for all of your kind notes and good wishes during this difficult
time. I'm thoroughly delighted to be back with you! I'll also be trying to
notify as many linking sites as I can find, but please feel free to pass
along the new address.
We're back up and running!
