I recently finished weathering the SD9 from Walthers. After-market spark arrestors were added like D&RGW used on their SD9.
Before applying a medium weathering, all lower parts of the stanchions were painted in yellow to match the prototype. I didn’t want to burry the loco under a heap of dirt (as the D&RGW often did), so I had to restrain myself…
The medium weathering makes all the details stand out!
This Walthers model looks awesome with some basic dirt applied to it!
I just got my GS-6 Southern Pacific back! The H0 locomotive (brass, Katsumi) has been retrofitted with a Tsunami decoder and now sports a subtle weathering.
See for yourself:
A subtle weathering really improves the looks this locomotive!
Impressive steam locomotive!
Showing a pair of stock Atlas EMD GP40 in D&RGW colors. Heavily weathered with chalks and airbrush.
Showing the overall dusted and sooted appearance.
D&RGW EMD GP40 #3131 with its, still, clean counterpart. The contrast between the weathered and the clean locomotive is huge.
In this shot, the kicked up dust along the underside is clearly visible. Also note the spilled fuel on the tank.
Both locomotives habe been weathered. The heavy dust and dirt covering was typical for the late Denver & Rio Grande Western.
Just received this gem:
It’s a brass GS-6 steam locomotive made from Katsumi in H0 and lettered as Southern Pacific.
Brass model of a SP GS-6 with partial skirting. This type of locomotive was mostly used on the San Joaquin Daylight.
The brass model was manufactured by Katsumi.
The locomotive is painted black/silver and lacks the distinctive side skirtings found on the more famous Daylight GS4.
Still, it sports the skyline casing and the cone-shaped smokebox.
These locomotives were also known as ‘War Babies’.
After recovering from a hard disk failure, I stumbled upon some old, never finished projects. One of these gems is an almost finished 3D model of a North American classic diesel-electric locomotive – the Electro-Motive-Division F7A.
I realized it is just missing some minor details like exhausts, wipers etc. My plan is to finish the model itself and to start mapping and texturing the locomotive.
Cannot work, cannot think and, worst, cannot sleep!
We don’t like this foul, bright disk. Makes us hurt!
