After painting the town red a few posts back, I decided it was time to paint it black. Grimy black that is. First cab off the rank was the Second Class Redfern car that I'd recently put together. First, was a coat of Purple Brown followed by the black for the under frame and roof. Here's how it turned out
Isn't Purple Brown is a lovely colour?
Next was a wooden under framed BKG
Tuscan Red isn't too bad either
Then a steel under framed BKG
No Electric Lights for this baby
Followed by a KKG
All the horsies are AR Kits modified as necesary
Then a loaf of bread EHO
I have a flat roofed EHO also from Mike McCormac models that's in the paint shop at the moment
And then a BKD
All carriages have sprung buffers and screw couplers
Still to go are a KB, GT and EHO that I mentioned before plus a few touch ups for the cars above. I'll start on the decal artwork again this week as I think I've cracked the problems I was having before with the colour registration moving all over the place so I hope to have them lettered soon. If anyone has any idea how the Second Class Redfern was lettered for the First World War period, I'd love to know. All the photo's I have showing the lettering date from the late 1890's and shows a simple car number only.
Then there is the lining for the EHO's.....shudder.
