Once I finally got the airbrush operating properly I was able to get the initial paint work on the boxcars done quite quickly. If I was going to apply decals I have a nice glossy surface to work on which is perfect for decals. Since I'm going to be applying dry transfers it really doesn't make a difference. Since I'll be using both I'll leave the glossy finish in place then seal it with Dullcote.
Just a couple of shots from last night. Its hard to take pictures when you are wearing a mask and handling an airbrush, an extra set of hands would have made things easier last night.
|Two done, down to the third one. My favorite test bed boxcar.|
|And here we go, three bright and shiny boxcars. Hard to figure out which one was that awful burnt orange color.|
