If I'm not mistaken Leggy was modelling Queensland (?) so I'd say needs a bit more raw sienna/warm yellow tones in there from my memory.

If nothing else they look reeeeeeeeeallll nice and I'll take them off his hands if he gets offended by the colour  :drool:.

As I've said to Brian in an email they're pretty spot on for the weathering usual too the north of Queensland with iron ore colours thrown in. You may have to wait till these units are passed on to future generations before you may get them! :P

Thanks. 

I saw Leggy's response, so maybe some Pay Per View wrestling action for those units...    :D  :trollface: 

Scary, but these are just the beginning...  :scared:

Not sure I ever posted these, but he's got some fuel tankers as well.

Hey Brian,
What light bars and decals did you use for those cop cars?  I have some undecs at home that I want to do a similar thing for.

Yeah, it is better Vincent. Here is one of the original photos. In this one the caboose is in decent focus but the background shows some sort of movement and double exposure (all the items seem to be doubled). Like the number 5127 and the lettering on that GP38-2 box. I know that the background is not important, but it does create a bit dizzying feeling...

Vincent - Also, it would help to set the shutter delay timer for a couple of seconds so that camera movement caused by pressing the shutter button isn't recorded.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Progress continues on the Bealville ranch complex.  Much more detail to be added.


If I'm following your layout correctly... You covered the whole shootin match with somewhat generic natural scenery that suggests your time and place, and now are going back over it and building more detailed individual scenes along the route as the mood strikes you?

Yea it sure does!! Do you have planned already what scenes you'd like to go where or do you just kind of throw it together on the fly? Like "Hmm... You know, that looks like a sweet place for a small ranch." or "Ok, now it's time to add the ranch I've had planned all along."?

Kalbert:  I don't do anything without a lot of thought at this point.  I've looked at this area for at least a year and let the thoughts rattle around.  Then I think some more and finally when I have the concept, I start to build.  Or destroy as the case may be...Naturally the project doesn't go as fast as I had envisioned.

Hi Philip.  I used the light bars off some Classic Metal Works fire chief cars and the decals are from Microscale.  With a little work, the bars pop right off.  Cut off the posts and glued on to the new cars.

MS Set number 60-4150.

Already mentioned inhttps://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=29592.msg319327#msg319327
Try using a tripod or put the camera down on a stable surface and use timer to release the shutter while the camera is steady.  Or use better lighting so the shutter speed is at least 1/60 of a second.  :D
