Well, I had hoped that I could report that I was done. At the last moment, I screwed up a decal. I held up on putting the final touches on the car. The damaged decal has to be replaced and then I can apply a flat finish and final weathering highlights. Well, maybe this week will finish up the this project.
I did take a few photos of the car with my cell phone (above) and with my DSLR below.
A couple of notes regarding the project:
- The kit is amazing. The detail and assembly methods are a step ahead of all O scale railroad car kits. It is not an easy shake the box type but following the instructions will result in a model you will be proud of.
- Metal trucks and weight added to the center sill are important for good operation.
- I weathered the model with Vallejo acrylic paints mixed with distilled water.
