I'm using acrylics - Tamiya yellow and I'll probably mix the grey. Railmatch do the dutch colours in enamels and acrylics (warning panel yellow and flit grey) but I'm sick of the fumes you get with the enamels.

Hope this helps.

Started painting the Whale and Sealion but having trouble with the airbrush. I think the problem is that I'm thinning with water after running out of lifecolor acrylic thinner recently. Looking around it seems you can use isopropyl alcohol which is cheap enough off ebay. Once I have this hopefully things'll be back on track.

Cheers

Apparently, cheap ebay alcohol isn't that pure - whether that's as big as a problem as some people think I don't know.

Hi all,

I've not had much time to focus on modelling recently, but have found time to progress with some of the kitbuilt wagons;

Image

Image

Cambrian Whale (the other end still needs sorting).

Image

Cambrian Dogfish

Image

Image

Image

Image

Cambrian Turbot (two now ready for painting).

Image

Image

Image

Parkside 21 tonner.

Image

Image

Hopefully these should get painted soon - then I can get back to rebuilding the layout 8)

Cheers

Liam

Good to see you back on it, you appear to be very talented in the art of wagon building! Some beautifully made kits you have there 8)

Have fun building the layout for them!

Cheers,
Sam

Thanks :)

I'm not sure when I'll be able to start on the layout exactly - the old one is pretty much a goner except for the boards and electrics.

Also recieved the 37003 limited edition which is a cracking model. It's really time to start thinking about a layout for it now :roll:

I couldn't leave this thread without commenting, those are some brilliant modelling skills and you've encouraged me to buy a couple of wagon kits on the next payday and have a go myself.
