I am doing this together with a buddy, both building this monster in 1:87 on special wooden bases, that can be joined when we exhibit together.

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

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.

Very well done ! I like the weathering. Did it came from pastells?

Thank you.

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

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.

Seeeehr schön!! Gesamtbild sehr realistisch. Besonders gut gefällt mir die Farbe für die NM - Teile (nicht zu grell).
