Nice modeling!  Even having seen this in person, this is a great view and shows things I didn't fully realize.  Scenery and structures are coming along very nicely - well done!!

I've tried the Vallejo Red Leather bUT it's a bit off.  I'm not good with mixing paints so was hoping someone had already done the footwork on this.

If not, time to practice mixing!

Should be water in the forward tank and oil in the rear one. There should be a large lid on the water tank, and a smaller one on the oil tank.

May sound like a dumb question, but which of the two hatches on the bunker is for filling water and oil?  Looked all over to no avail.

Ended up Simple Greening with Ivory Liquid chaser.
So far...
1. Fit body to floor.
2. Drilled/tapped floor for 0-80.
3. Disassembled Blackstone trucks removing side bearer roller assembly.
4. Attach trucks.
Next....
1. Finalize truck/couple height. (Think temporary gluing)
2. Enlarge side bearer center hole to clear truck mounting bolster pad.
3. Reassemble trucks.
4. Test and trim body side bearer to clear truck side bearer rollers.
5. Reassemble and test.

Margarita time.

Re: Relettering Blackstone Coach

Mike Conder
 

Hmm ... makes me wonder if anybody has pinned down a similar Tamiya formula for the Blackstone red passenger cars?   A friend in England found a bottle of solvent-based red that's a dead ringer, but I've lost it and don't remember the name (maybe Railmatch LM Lake or LM Red?)

Dusty I posted a formula to match Blackstone coach green several months back. Look in the messages tab for Matching BS Coach Green or follow the link below. Since this post I have used the formula on a LaBelle parlor car and am satisfied that even on a wood car it's a good match to Blackstone's color.

Re: LED headlight

Mick Moignard
 

I’ve seen this issue before with Blackstone K27 locos.  A friend has one that blows the headlight LED occasionally.  I just pull out (gently) the circuit board from the headlight and replace the LED. Think I’ve done it twice already.  I guess the issue is elsewhere in the loco electronics or more likely that one of the wires is damaged on its way thru the loco. One place for that is actually where the two wires to the light pass by the gearbox and are held under clips on it.  If one of those wires gets nicked and squashed it might short to track power some where on the chassis and that overwhelms the LED.  I’ve not explored that far.  Another possibility is an occasional short to another wire in the loco/tender plug area, or if it is a first run loco, that the braided wires used in the plug are breaking down and shorting occasionally.  All fixable tho, with time and care.

Mick
