BUT Railcars

Recommended Posts

At long last I'm getting near the end of the 700 Series build.

There is still a good bit of work to do to finish them before finally attaching the roofs and the water pipes but that's after I test the engines.

How did you do the engines/gearboxes etc?

 

Thanks Guys for your kind words of encouragement, it's appreciated.

 

John, I have to confess I cheated. I cropped a picture of the engine and scaled it down to fit. then I printed it off on photographic paper, stuck it onto a piece of plasticard cut to shape and fitted it underneath. It did not escape your eagle eye.

It was the last tin of GNRI Railcar blue from Phoenix Paint, there would need to be the demand before Chris would mix this colour again unfortunately.

Looks great.

 

Beware copying RPSI Cravens colour, or the blue used by the UTA on 111 and 115 in the late 60s for a very short period; these are much lighter. I simply mention this because of the perception occasionally found that the RPSI livery is broadly GNR - it isn't; it's inspired by it (and very well it looks too in my opinion). Actual GNR railway blue, as applied to trams, the MAK loco and railcars and carriages, can still be seen on the Fintona tram at Cultra. What's on those excellent models above, as will be seen, is very considerably darker, which is correct. In reality, when weathered even slightly, it looked a few shades short of navy.

Absolutely top class work. They look great!

 

If you ever decide to weather them, if memory serves the exhaust made quite a mess around it!
