This is something totally different for this website and I'm not sure if it will even qualify for this GB but I'm working on it anyways so I thought I'd enter it.

This is an HO scale extended vision caboose that will be part of my family train layout once I'm finished with it.  HO scale works out to 1:87 which is why I am including it in the GB.

There isn't much construction involved in this kit as you will see from the pictures, a couple end panels and some grab bars need to be glued in place, the fun part will come in weathering the car.  I'm not going to go crazy with the weathering but I have some photos of what it would have looked like when in service and dirty.  Along with spraying with my airbrush I will use pigments and washes to create the look I want.

Here are the "sprue" shots.....

And here are the photos of the real ones......

So I started with a little painting of the end sections.....

And then I added all the grab bars, 16 in total....

That's all for the first day, more detail painting to come and then on to the weathering.

Thanks,

I managed a little bit of painting last night, as you can see from the photos the grab bars are all yellow now and I drybrushed silver in appropriate areas to start the weathering process.

Hi Timbo, great and unusual entry. I have no knowledge about trains at all, so will follow with interest. Enjoy!

Very nice paint and wheathering... dry brushing makes it look so realistic... I'm very impressed. Can't wait to see the next posts...

Well, that's certainly a bit different.  Nice start, looking forward to seeing how you weather it.
