Master at Arms
Bob Letterman said:Hi all,
I have decided to consolidate all my threads involved with the large diorama, Logistics, into five specific ones. (1) The base and buildings, (2) the soft skin vehicles, (3) the armor vehicles, (4) the Rolling stock including the trolleys and (5) the figures. I will leave all the old threads where they are, but I will post the original topics here. Sorry, to include all your comments/responses would be way above my pay grade. When I do an update from now on, I will put them in the new threads. This topic will eventually include ALL railroad models/K-5 railway gun and trolleys in the diorama.
First, the old topics.
Another vehicle for the next diorama will be a locomotive, tender and a RR Gun. I have the locomotive and tender complete up to the point of painting and weathering, and the RR gun is barely started with one of the trucks ready to paint. This is, of course, the Trumpeter kit. I had originally built the Tank Workshop kit and when this came out, discovered that the TW kit was almost twice the size of this and really out of scale!
Here is the BR-52 with base coat. The first two are normal photos, the third enhanced with brightness in Photoshop. The next step will be to lighten some of the larger areas with black plus some khaki drill, Humbrol matt 72, then to the detailing.
This will be on the tracks of the train station cutaway w/tender and K-5 railway gun. More to come later
Hope you like it!
