Pete airbrushes his train

“Here’s a brass gon I airbrushes and decaled, something I’ve been doing for years.

The junk is a combo of many things. Plus an OMI 2nd generation A unit completely coverted from a Burlington scheme to WP with all the redone hand rails, window shades and roof detail including and new P & D pilot and nose door. Hope you like?

Here’s a sample of my On3 too.

Wow! Would love to see more of Peter’s work.

I was curious about the ‘Galloping Goose’ so I had a look on youtube and found this:

By the way, if you haven’t looked at the ebay cheat sheet for a while, now’s a great time to – lots going on there.

That’s all for today folks – please do keep ’em coming because it’s getting a little thin this end.

And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to get going on your own layout.

Best

    I agree with the other people who praised you.

    BUT did they notice the sexy engineer on Engine # 50?
    I did . A good thing to see if people notice things on your layout.

  10. Ian McDonald says:

    very nice spray work so precise. the waterfall, the fly fisherman and the man on the tyre so realistic. good video on the galloping goose.

  11. Thank you very much, Tom, Mark, Al, Bruce and those of you who didn’t leave your names. Very much appreciated ! I will certainly have my GF video a paint job for you as I do take special care with prototypical engines and rolling stock etc. Right now I’m learning how to make O scale #6 switches which is a task because I like to put tie plates and spikes on every tie. The fast track videos help a lot, so kudos to those folks. I assure you I’m noticing everything Al sends along of everyone’s work as we all learn from each other, even though I’ve been in the hobby for many years like the rest of you, it never ends picking up on any technics. I’m sending some more paint jobs for Al to post and the gentleman who observed the sexy engineer…I have a surprise for you. Take care, Peter

    Absolutely superb, Peter! I have never seen such a perfect paint job on a model locomotive. Far better than makers’ factory job.

    Galloping Goose is a real hoot! What great work! Enjoyed all of it.

  14. Peter Theodore says:

    Hey Steve from down under…cheers my good man! I wish they were as good as the factory jobs. Those are impeccable with less paint, I wonder how they do it? You know, the process the Koreans have. Anyway, happy modeling to all.

    Super’b. Like the green 676 and the way you put that rust streak in the bottom right corner looks so realistic.
