Thread: Coaching Stock - Irish Freight Models

  1. #1

    Coaching Stock - Irish Freight Models

    Just finished lightly weathering our fleet of Irish Freight Models (IFM) coaching stock collected over past few years. Assembled them into a rake for pic and video clip below. I am thrilled to have a rake of early era CIE coaching stock, and really delighted with these unique and good looking coaches. Well done Tom. Will try and get a better picture in daylight in the next few days.



    Enjoy the short video clip. Also has some of my recent attempts at weathering goods wagons.



    Locos are running 'wheeltappers' DCC sound projects running on LokSound decoders supplied by DC-Kits.

    • Park Royals x 2
    • CIE Laminate
    • Park Royal x 1

    Thanks Jason. I can't stop driving the two new LokSounds from 'Wheeltappers' on 181 and 190.

    Some more taken in daylight to add a little atmosphere. I am more than pleased with these iconic RTR coaches.



    The very light weathering helped tone down the shade of orange on the Park Royals, TPO and heating Van. A rake entirely made up of RTR coaching stock from IFM - such a rake but an impossible dream 30 years ago.

    No connection whatsoever, just a happy customer of both. The sound chips were actually supplied by DC-Kits (Charlie Petty), but the sound projects were made by 'wheeltappers' who also sell direct. As Charlie's stuff is mainly by Legomanbiffo I had incorrectly assumed it was biff who'd make it but both he and Charlie pointed me at wheeltappers. As to IFM I have been trying to learn to airbrush and I finally got around to doing a light weathering job on the coaches I'd bought from them over the past two years. Hence the recent interest

    Hi Stephen. No those two were taken in poor daylight (High ISO), the other one was last evening under poor indoor light hence the narrow DOF blurry effect and the white balance was also incorrect. Almost identical scenes though. Sure can take some closer shots when the light is good enough. Noel
