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!

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!!

priming F.U.D.

to all.

I have some questions about priming shapeways printed Frosted Ultra Detail:

I've just finished giving my models a simple green and warm water wash up, now allowing time to air dry etc.
(thanks for the discussion about that)

what I would like to know is:

what do you guys use to prime with?

has anyone used an automotive type primer (spray can) on FUD before?

thanks in advance for your help.

Kevin.

I've used a Krylon red primer with excellent results.  Highly recommended, easy to weather if you're paying a red boxcar or something.

That is a Milwaukee car, I was told the name of the Original road but have forgotten it

There is a C&NW ng boxcar #10 at the Mid-Continent RR museum near Baraboo, WI. However it sits on Belvue and Cascade trucks.

Re: C&NW NG truck identification

Mike Conder
 

Thanks for the info.

But after reading the RR of Az Vol 3 book (per the earlier recommendation) I think I need info on a Lichtfield car design circa 1883 or so.  (Amazing how much one forgets about a book read cover-to-conver over 30 years ago!).

Haven't checked out the Gazette or other magazine indices, that's the next step.

No luck at all lately

My sweet running Westside Models HOn3 Heisler #3 quit running all of a sudden.  Some wires connecting the commutator to the windings broke  (have I got that right?).  Checked Loco Doc, nothing listed for this model.  Any suggestions?

The shay fixer replaced my motor with a can and a new bracket and used fuel line tubing.
Ran great afterward.  I have not run it in a decade.
