Don't really think you want the short wheelbase trucks being suggested here. Can't put my hands on my National Fitch drawings right at the moment but believe the correct axle spacing was 7 ft. How about trucks from the Walthers 52 ft. General American express reefers and GPEX milk tank cars? They have either 7 or 8 ft. axle spacing and may be your best bet. Certainly even an 8 ft. spacing would look better than 5 ft. under the NX cars.

Re: Airbrush question

Douglas Harding
 

Mark, Badger now makes an airbrush with a gravity cup that will swivel down
for a siphon feed by attaching a bottle. Can't recall, but Iwata may have
one as well. I have Pashaa, Badger & Iwata airbrushes, single and double
action. All are siphon feed, ie from the bottle. As I paint exclusively
acrylics, I use the Iwata Revolution or Badger Antham 155, which have needle
designs for Acrylics.



I have heard folks who prefer the gravity feed vs siphon. Not sure you will
get a clear answer.

Re: Accurail model list

Well, Jared, there are two, at least, in the files area.



One of them is my inquiry into accurate prototypes for the various versions
of the Accurail 41' gon. Look in Files for Accurail 41' gon.xls



"spalso" started a list, apparently, titled "Prototypes for the HO Models?"
though that doesn't list an Accurail product.



Might be some others in there, but I know of those two.

Re: Airbrush question

Group:
I use a double action gravity feed brush. I have a few different size cups
and find mixing small amounts of color especially for weathering
a definite plus. My brushes are all Thayer & Chandler. I just had them all
professionally refurbished. The only one they could not do because of lack
of parts was a 1946 T&C model that I inherited in 1967 and had to stop
using two years ago. Keep em clean, and any of them will give you years of
service. And learn how to use it.

Hello, Friends!
My two cents: I've used the Paasche Model H single action, external mix
brush since 1976, with excellent results. That being said, I recently
acquired a Badger single-action internal mix brush (Model 200NH) and did
some fine painting with Modelflex. Rarely do I keep large amounts of
paint in bottles, as I like to vary "freight car reds" and Santa Fe
Mineral Browns to avoid that "cookie cutter look."
Many fine scale modelers swear by the gravity feed brushes, as it allows
one to paint at lower pressures, which is particularly when it comes to
fine weathering. I've not found a gravity feed necessary, but they have
their place. Whatever brush you choose, get to know it. "Play" with it
on an inexpensive swap meet model before painting your Sunshine kit.
And do filter that paint, particularly if it is acrylic.
Cheers!

Can anyone help with a source for the correct trucks used on the Twin Tank Milk Cars offered by Funaro & Camerlengo in HO? BCW doesn't appear to have the correct design.

These cars are basically flat cars with National Car Co. reporting marks that held two removable Borden's, Renkin's, Dairyman's League or Sheffield milk tanks.

The truck design was a passenger type truck as they were hauled in passenger and milk train consists. The wheelbase appears to be a bit shorter than "standard" four-wheel passenger type trucks, however.

Re: Advice Regarding Best Adhesives

For a non-solvent contact cement, I would recomend Liquid Nails LN-201, http://tinyurl.com/ckzuncu . I use it all the time, never had an issue. Full discloser, I used to receive a pay check from Liquid Nails. It is less agressive than Goo, slower setting, thinner, less tacky.

Contact cements have been suggested. I have not seen or missed it mentioned that contact cements come in two types: solvent base such as Walthers Goo, Piobond, etc. and water base. I have purchased the water base types at wookworking stores. For metal to wood I would use a contact type. For styrene to metal I would use the water base type. Not the solvent type as the solvent types normally contain acetone which attacks sytrene.

Transfer tape was suggested. As for a good model transfer adhesive I suggest 3M 565 tape which is available at art stores. I use it to attach paper items, such shingles to styrene, all the time. As another person stated the beauty of the transfer tape is there is no warpping.

I would also like to bond some flat pieces of .030 laser cut wood to a smooth flat brass surface. Any recommendations? Best practice to prepare brass and wood surfaces for good secure long lasting bond?

I attempted a test to see if ACC would hold in these situations. I ACC'd the materials in place and allowed to dry for 12 hours. Then I tried to see how easy it would be to separate the styrene and wood from the brass surface. In both cases they just popped right off the brass surface after a bit of pressure was applied.

I'm on the road and can't give you a lot of details but after 30+ years of using Badger double-action air brushes, I bought an Iwata gravity-feed brush a couple of years ago. I use only Floquil enamels and one of the advantages is that you don't need to dilute Floquil with this brush. Not to dump on Andy, but I have not had issues with the gravity feed. Send me any e-mail and I can give you a model number but it is great for an overall first coat of a freight car as well as weathering.

I've been using my internal mix double action Paasche since around 1986 or
so with great results. Basic differences in design such as single or double
action and internal of external mix can make fo some rather obvious
differences in performance, most of the high quality brushes of similar
design will perform quite similarly depending on the individual users
personal likes.
