G9 a La Dieselwater

Postby scott b » Sat Dec 12, 2009 7:02 pm

I` ve been following http://forum.gn15.info/viewtopic.php?t=5724 and got hooked but I wanted to stay with 1:22.5, I had a couple of the kato 104 trucks on hand so I started with a G9 loco inspired by the paper works of the dieselwater thread.
So far unpainted

It's looking the business scott 8) I like how you've done the vent.

It's funny, because I was originally inspired by Ian Thompson's Barnes Woodyard in G9.

The thing about the card/paper is I knocked that off in about 3 hours, when I cut out the plate to mate with the power truck I cut out 7 of them as I could see where this was headed so there will be more, I thought I would build a few and then paint all at once (as well as finish painting my crane challenge).

Yup, only 7 but I did find I have 2 different kato power trucks that have different mount tab placement on the bottom so I will have to cut out a few more mounts so I can use both.
I actually had some sketch paper on hand that I used, BUT I did use some heavy cardstock from a playmobil Xmas display from a couple of years ago.
Here is another one I built saturday morning.

I gave them both a blast with brown paint this morning and I am going to try a mix of dieselwaters and my paint methods this week.

Great Scott !!

Is this the first follower to Dieselwater ?

What should we call it, "The Dieselwater Way", or "following the latest Dieselwater fashion" :D :D

Just great, feel tempted to do a 78n18 version myself. 8)

I now find myself checking out every bit of paper and cardstock that goes through my hands.
Off course I`m now thinking I have to build something to run them on, perhaps someones back yard.

Thats a shame. I liked the black and white front board, and the funky green stripe on the side :lol:

It reminds me of the bizarre liveries (I think it was LGB) had on some G scale locos. One was a 'cow' livery which was white loco covered with big black spots over it. I wonder how well that sold? :?

Nice work making things happen. I like the axle hub detail too!

The one with the Atari logo on the front :wink: reminded me of Peter Max graphics! I'm sure it will look great in brown, but I also thought the modern look had potential :D

Okay, 2 down, 5 to go!

I actually have 3 finished but I don`t like the 3rd much, I was eyeballing it and it came out to big. Sorry but the modern graphics had to go, every time I looked at it I had the uncontrollable urge to say moo. So first sprayed brown then some dabs of lighter browns and the odd orange and then find the salt! The different types of card and paper really took the spray paint (cheapo shake can) differently especially the quality drawing paper, it already looks like mottled rust.

Looking good Scott 8) I like how the shape of the second one is formed. How you've produced the back and sides with one piece. I like how you've done the wheel bogies too.

I find with cardstock, it does vary from piece to piece. I always try and have the shiny side in. The rougher side I think makes for a better canvas for paint. Also I use other materials too. Such as styrene, balsa, coffee stir sticks and car kit bits. Card is ideal for panels and such like, but not always for small detailed bits. Many of my roofs and hood panels are from a pad of white post it note paper.

I think this type of speeder design lends itself well to micro layouts. I'm chuffed and very flattered others are having a crack at producing them. They're great fun 8)

I don`t know I would use the word speed in any way to describe these locos :lol:

Ick. I hate to think somewhere there is a manager who got a bonus for thinking that up. Thats why I painted mine so quickly although when I left for work the second coat of paint did not look so good, but I have had worse that ended up fine once I played with it for a while. I`ll try to get some prelim paint pics up wednesday.

Hi Scott - 3 gnifty little critters there. I do like the painting and weathering on them - hard-used and hard-working critters.
