Marc Schimmler The kit is somehow schizophrenic ...
Fantastic level of detail and in some areas toy-like ....

Marc Schimmler I made some progress. The suspensions for the locomotive and the tender have been finished. Basic paint Coat and decals have been added. Now the ageing.

Christian Meyerhoff Very well done ! I like the weathering. Did it came from pastells?
26. September 2015 at 08:38:45
Marc Schimmler Thank you.

No, they are artists pigments. Quite cheap and realistic.

Wim van der Luijt I looked at the build in amazement, this machine looks realistic, the weathering is spot on in my opinion, not too much, I like it a lot.
