What did you do to your trains today?
#1
I thought this was a funny and interesting idea for a thread pinched from another forum I am a member of Tongue With or without pics is fine.

So... What did you do to your trains today??

Today I filmed Plarail Stephen, I also did a couple of minor repairs (Percy's snapped coupling) (Bulgy's misaligned front axle) and a small amount of dusting.

That is a great picture of the differences between the Tomy and Trackmaster Stephens. It blatantly shows how horrible looking those holes in the Trackmasters wheels look. Hey Trackmaster, Why do you alter your product to fit your packaging?...Why don't you alter your packaging to fit your product? [Image: confused-shrug-smiley-emoticon.gif]

Still working on a custom train station as all I have left is making a wiring harness. Good topic! Off to watch you latest YouTube Review.

Is that your first paint job using your new airbrush system. How did you like it? How is the paint holding up? The silver looks great and the masking is perfect. 3volt with Ultra Dash, will he stay on the tracks?

its a rattlecan paintjob sad to say, still need to get some more supplies to use the airbrush and its much more involved than a rattlecan but I think the results would be much better than this.

you can see the "ripples" in the top photo, to me it also looks like how a real tender is constructed in panel sections with sheets of metal over a frame.

yesterday we started to use the new airbrush and it is a fantastic tool! very smooth consistent paint delivery, a fine mist that gets great coverage and allot of control.

We repainted a spare 2012 Thomas, the color was chosen because it was the only acrylic we had that could be thinned and washed up with water Big Grin After that we went and bought some supplies to thin and wash up enamel.

Then we started on my 4472 project not too sure about the color, was to be lner and to match the Hornby decals the color matching was difficult it could end up being a BR livery now. Photo shows it as almost tan but its a kind of drab olive green. this photo shows the smooth and excellent coverage of the airbrush especially over fine detail molding.

Love the dirty looks of the hired loco and the use of flat paints. How did you like using your airbrush and how durable is the finish? Did you prepare the surface somehow so the paint adheres better? Would love to see a picture of the front or will we have to wait for the next Customs video? Looks like he could use a black coupler.
