What did you do today on your layout? (HO and other scales)

Been working on my Niseko Expres

Installed a lighting kit for the cars

Now, if I can only finish painting all of the people for them...

Also now that the cars are super bight inside, I want to paint the floors to look like the real cars and even add the over head luggage storage racks and things like that. but that's for another time

Love those HO D51s!  They've been on my wishlist for a while, I hope kato re-releases them at some point.  Great work with the detail parts, how do you go about touching up the paint once they've been installed?

 

I use MicroLux acrylic Engine Black applied with a fine brush. It closely matches the Kato factory paint finish. Any slight difference in appearance disappears once the weathering goes on.

 

Cheers,

I've seen these but have never read any detailed information.  Based on the shape I assume they channeled smoke directly behind them, horizontally.  Is that correct?  Was this for operation in tunnels?

 

Yes and yes. I have some photos and drawings that show how they work, I’ll post them when I get a chance. In the meantime this page is worth a look:

I decided to work on my キシ80 today. after installing the rooftop parts, I decided to put some people in it and paint the kitchen to give it a more... kitchen feel rather than the base color.  could still use spme more people and some more food, but that's a project for another dayphoto5129658177133062175.thumb.jpg.1ecff9dc53c4176706625a334e163bfa.jpgphoto5129658177133062174.thumb.jpg.68da2039cf44ae2a5cc96b63ac3601f6.jpg
