Rod,

Nice work on the engines.  I wish it would warm up here so I can get back to working on my layout more.

There's a prototype for everything.
If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.
DCC is not plug-n-play.

Love the finish on those corrugated buildings.  They look sun-baked - just like they should!

Like Gary, I too love the corrugated structure finish. Would you mind letting us in on your technique?
Nice progress!

HI Otto, sorry for late reply as we have been traveling interstate the past week or so.
The corrugated walls are a plastic product from the UK called Slaters. I have used it for years in N, On30 and now of course my HOn3 layout.
I firstly lightly scribe the lines for the dimensions I want for the corrugated iron sheets once laid (I use a #11 medical Scalpel ). Then spray the building with Tamiya Flat Gull Grey or sometimes even just Tamiya Light Grey Surface Primer. Once dry spray with Dull cote. Then I use Tamiya Panel Line Brown paint to carefully apply this to each scribed line to highlight the seams. The rust on the roof sheets is done by laying down a strip of Tamiya masking tape on the lowest edge of each sheet. Then I dry brush from the bottom up on each sheet using Tamiya Red Brown lightly and once dry a similar process using Tamiya Hull Red.
Seems to come out okay.
You might gather I like Tamiya paint. Yep, I have used it for more than 30 years and it has never let me down.
Rod.

Over the past few weeks I got to complete a Grandt Line Wheel and Tie car.
This is a very old kit however it was one I wanted to add to my roster of D&RGW MOW cars.

I am happy with the way it has turned out.
Now for the next project.
