Randy,

I've found for great results (albeit a lot of work) with any wood kit.... I spray the finished car(s) with clear semi-gloss Deft Lacquer. The lacquer seals the wood pours and lifts the grain slightly. Once dry...(in minutes) I sand the surface using a small 400 grit sanding sponge. This creates a surface that feels as smooth as a babies bottom, then spray PBL's Star brand or True- color paint (both are an acetone based paint). I would try some test pieces first before spraying a model though.

I'm midway through building Narrow Gauge Colorado's Placerville Depot kit (stuck on the roofing) and used PBL's Star Brand for the first time. Used their thinner, but was really impressed with how well it went down.

I have been trying for years to airbrush acrylics with varying results, PBL's paint is the closest I've come to old school original formula Floquil in... well a really, really long time.

So Randy, consider this a long winded +1 to John's recommendation!

Let's hope there is an interested person or group, that will acquire Eric's important line of model railroading products, for both current and future modelers to enjoy.

The website will be closing in 2020, but Rio Grande Models is still operating for now and will eventually be winding down as it is in its current form.

So place your orders and buy up all that you can before the kits truly become "limited editions".

Paint/prime the car with thinned shellac.. (alcohol based, thin with rubbing alcohol).  Treat as sanding sealer... sand or clean up with steel wool to seal everything...  Take care not to fill the scribed siding with paint.  You may want to consider using evergreen styrene in place of the scribed wood.  Then paint with your choice of paint...

Randy,

Pretty much all model paints today (save for Accu-Paint and Scale Coat) are some form of water based acrylic, enamel or urethane enamels. For all water or based acrylics or enamels, you should prime the wood parts with a solvent based spray on primer. Like Krylon Primer and Paint in white or primer gray. This is the primer method Banta Model Works and Raggs to Riches suggest. It works nicely from my experience. It seals the wood and prevents the wood from warping from the water based paints as they cure. Spray all wood parts to be painted prior to assembly and let dry at least 2 days before beginning construction. For final coatings I use mostly Vallejo Model Colours these days. The are from Spain and the Europeans still make the finest pigments around. Vallejo’s German Red Brown Primer is the best match for Tuscan Red that I’ve found ever.

Mission Models makes some very nice urethane enamels. They go on and cure with an excellent final surface. They are a bit fiddly to learn how to use but well worth the time spent in doing so. They are promising some rail road colors some day but, the existing line of military and automotive colors are broad.

Nothing on his Facebook page indicates an issue - he posted a photo on the 22d.  I'm not registered on Facebook; so I can't message, but maybe if someone else would...?  It's possible the website has been hijacked or there's a problem with the website service, has happened before.  I don't remember the specifics, but Trout Creek Engineering had to rebuild their website with a different url (.co instead of .com)

Went to print order form and saw 'CLOSED' in big letters on their home page. Called Coronado and Sheldon said he was at their Web Site yesterday and didn't recall seeing 'CLOSED'. Anyone know what's  happening? Hope all is well.
