Håkan, you are indeed a master when it comes to bringing these colourful looking steam engines to life.
Excellent work on this newest one!

Thanks Russ, Mike and Greg for the kind words! Not enough time this weekend to test it yet. I hope to test it in the week.

Thanks Andre, its a brass Ebay find. I could not find any marks on it and after examining it I think it is a one off scratchbuilt job. Except for drivetrain and the drivers. It looks like a cross between a Brooks and a Baldwin mogul.

I don't know how I missed the finished shot. The engine really looks good. About what ratio of metalizer paint did you use?

Håkan, Looks really good. Hope the test runing goes well. Sorry to hear your Alps printer isn't doing so well. Any possible replacement ideas on the horizon?
( I have a friend working on an American Civil War era layout and at some point he will be looking at getting his locomotives painted and decalled.)

It looks very good. Good luck with the operational test.

Thanks Guys! And very sorry for the late answer! To much RL at the moment and too little time to sit at the computer

Bob, I mix about 3:1 with Gunmetal against Stainless steel.

The test drive after painting went well. I'll soon post a video of it chugging along.

I also take the opportunity to wish everyone on the forum a Merry Christmas and I hope everyone get lots of modeling time from their loved ones

Håkan
