Toronto Railway Prototype Modellers Meet

Richard MCQUADE
 


The annual Toronto Railway Prototype Modellers Meet will be held on Saturday, April 9th from 8:30 am to 4:00pm. (Please note that it will be in April, not March as per previous years.) The day consists of clinics by prototype modellers and the unique “show and tell” component, an open forum for modellers to discuss the display models. Each attendee is urged to bring a model, whether completed or not, for this, although this is not mandatory. The Meet’s location is the same as last year: Humber College, 205 Humber College Blvd, Toronto, ON M9W 5L7 - North Campus, Building B, rooms B201& B202. The admission is $15 and parking is free. For further information check our website at:   https://torontoprototypemodellers.wordpress.com/  or contact Brian Gauer at: bdgauer@...

Alex Schneider says:


"Bogies is British nomenclature for what we call "trucks"."

Yes, but the American use of the term is used to represent enemy aircraft...particularly during our time frame... and, of course the close proximity to the Southwest Pacific lends itself to that interpretation especially since the STMFC is about North American frt cars. OTOH. none of it seems appropriate for the STMFC.

I have two issues with the kit


1) The bogies are missing but there were plastic wheels now disposed of. "

​Denis,


It doesn't really matter what trucks you slap under it as the paint and lettering for Richfield is bogus.

Hi,


I purchased at a train show a secondhand un-built Red Caboose Type 103W 10,000 gallon tank car lettered for Richfield with a built date of 8-49.


I have two issues with the kit


1) The bogies are missing but there were plastic wheels now disposed of. So, what available bogies would best fit this car?

2) The main handrail around the centre of the car is missing. If someone has an unbuilt example of this car it would be useful if I could get a scan of the handrail including a ruler so I could bend one up. Anybody able to assist with this?


Thanks

Re: Representing paint failure

Hi,

I still have the very first weathering job I ever did - an Athearn GN caboose.
It was pretty much a "total failure" in terms of being able to actually use it.
I still get "red" when I remember the jeers I got at the layout when I
"proudly showed it off". I especially like to haul it out when I'm helping a
buddy learn how to do weathering (as an example of how not to do it).

At least one of the reasons why it was a failure was because I put it
behind a train of unweathered cars ... but the level of weathering was
"seriously over done" ... *G*.

HOWEVER - the techniques I learned in that weathering session (I was
being taught by someone who was a very skilled military modeler) - are
still with me and very much "in play/in use" to this day.

Congrats on Digest Number 10000

D. Scott Chatfield
 

While not a terribly useful yardstick, I should note that the Steam Era Freight Cars list has now sent out 10,000 digest emails for those of us that get digests. Lots of useful info in those 10,000 emails.

Thanks to all that contribute. And Happy New Year!

Re: Representing paint failure

Don’t overlook the technique of ragged edge cloud and mountain spray masks.

Do the like in a smaller version for sections like worn galvanized roofs. You’ll feather the edges of the applied paint with the method.

It might work with a coarse spray generic airbrush or paint-bomb. You’ll certainly have great control and results if you use a fine tip, fine spray airbrush in that step.

Best to ya,

Lighten up, A futile attempt of some humor never hurt anyone..Like weathering,some tend to over-do it.I believe weathering , including paint failure should be subtle.Just my humble opinion.I make it a practice not to be critical of any individual's work...Now if I had said,"It looks like something Mrs Murphy's cat dragged in the back door " I should be justifiably subjected to an individual's ire..Armand Premo Message -----
