Almost, except for putting the wheels back on, and the couplers. This is the Walther’s car mentioned in the previous blog post. This car was weathered using Vallejo rust paint, dirt, black, and a touch of yellow. Dirt and black were mixed for the underside of the car, while rust was used along the frame of the car plus the lifting rings on the hoods. The car was then given a dark wash down the sides and ends using a Vallejo wash, then a dark grey pan pastel was added while wet to simulate peeling paint on the top and top sides of the hoods. Rust spots were applied using Vallejo rust texture. ACI panels from BLMA were added to the car frame. Almost ready to go to work on the Hitop…..

I have been a railfan since the age of 6, and a modeler since the age of fourteen. This is my first fully (well not quite) completed model railroad. I fell in love with trains early in life, ride them when I can, have volunteered on many steam fan trips and have ridden many more steam excursion trips, have belonged to several model rr clubs, and did a stint as a brakeman/conductor on a midwest regional railroad. My layout was published in Model Railroader magazine in 2016. I hope all of you enjoy the ride here on my sites! I now have the second blog/website up for my other hobby: wargaming with Flames Of War. I have been involved in wargaming off and on since my teens...... View all posts by stevecampbell60
