    Only thing is this would be about the 125th NPRY that I have done so you have a bit of catching u to do:avatar:
    This wagon will take me no time to finish Already half done.
    Those of you who haven't seen ths is the type of detail that comes on the wagonsPity half of it will get covered[​IMG]
    First thing after removing the bogies was to focus on the underframe. this was done with a mix of the Brown and white at 4:1.
    [​IMG]
    once done I dry brushed on some white to highlight the piping and areas that would have had cement dust leak over. This also shows the detail on the Piping underneath
    [​IMG]
    As I'm gonna make this one as it will be around 2 monhs out of the workshops I painted a few Air tanks Blue to simulate new tanks recently added
    [​IMG]
    Next the Bogies
    [​IMG]

    These bogies are one of the most detailed I have seen for a while includes brake rigging and all these have just been given a coat of the same mix as the underframe for now.Once reassembled they will get a treatment almost the same as the NODY received.
    Once that was put to dry the body had the logos and panels I wanted to keep covered with tape.
    [​IMG]
    as you can see they haven't been covered fully as it will add to the effect of the panels in the end.The body was then Coated in a mix of White and Sky gray at around 3:1this will be the base for the cement dust effect that I want to achieve .[​IMG]
    and once masking has been removed
    [​IMG]
    That's it for now. will let the base coat set for awhile

    Cheers
    Dave

    It's been a while since HO modelling in bulk for me David
    And yes lots of catching up to do several 100 wagons sounds scary when said like that.
    The set I have are the all white Freight rail/corp ones.

    It does get repeditive after a while but its good when its only trains of 20-24 wagons ive done at a time.
    Have done some White ones its abit different to do as the white paint changes the way the Dust sticks. Will have to track down the photos of the hite ones i did and stick up a photo to show you Chris Underframes are the Same as above but you would have bits of the Blue coming through the Grime more. Getting back to my one, being along weekend here ive decided to stay up and do some more to the Cement hopper, started with light washers of White paint ive slowly made the sides more of the weathered Aluminium look that they where. As seen below the difference in the colour it does bring out all the detail. the White wash was started from the very top ad working its way to the bottom n one stroke. this gave the aperance that rain has washed the cement dust down the body.
    [​IMG]
    After happy with these washe i sarted to add the black/dark Gray wash to the Weld Lines and other areas around the body as on the prototype.
    [​IMG]Once this was added i started mixing whites with greys in medium thichness washes to start blending in the colours through out the body. Again always working from top to bottem. some areas that had a patchy effect had a fine paintbrush dabbed on to that area to make it look as below. [​IMG]I know some of you are thinking that i should have waited till the paint drys for each layer but using water based Acrylics lets the water Bleed into the other clours giving it a non uniform finish. Below shows the body and the underframe starting to come together it shows the tanks that have been painted to represent new ones and the detail starting to stand out. Lots more to do still [​IMG][​IMG]
    As you can see above as the water Dry's it does show that effect that I was after. it hasn't been finished yet still more to com.
    Cheers Dave

    Excellent Dave. Lovely detail on the underside and like the idea of the new tanks.

    Any rust being applied to this at all ?

    Cheers

    Hi Toto
    There will be some rust added but only under the wagon on piping and brake gear.As these wagons are Aluminum bodies there is no rust on the main body.
    Keiran Ryan Models http://www.krmodels.com.au have some good Quality Photos on his Detail Photo Page showing the underside of these wagons after a derailment in the early 2000s Which shows minimal rust on these wagons.

    Woke up this morning to this....

    As you can see as the paint drys it starts to look finished, still a bit to go but.
    Will give this a clear coat. then finish it off

    Thanks

    Thanks David
    Very nicely done.
    Going to have a look for some photos of them in service for reference found a video on YouTube and there are some big variances in how they look some fillers at the concrete plant must be more careful than others by the look of some wagons

    Have some here that I can put up if you need Chris
    Wagon has now been done and dusted.
    As I mentioned this one is about 1 month or so Ex works, so I have done more rust on this one then I have done on others. As they would have to sheck all connections I figured that the wagon would have been pressure cleaned underneath to get all pipes ready to be inspected.[​IMG]didn't Add tomuch more to the sides but wih a Sharp black pencil highlighted some of the Weld lines on the side just to make it stank out moreWalkway was given small dabs of a rusty brown just to give the aged effect
    SO here it is
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Nice quick and easy one that anyone can do.

    Cheers
    Dave

    Thanks for the comments guys, took the wagons to the Club tonight to night to get some a couple of photos.
    Thinks it looks more at home on the layout then on the work bench.
