Hi,

Another set of photos of a project built for a friend that bought this model on the Internet.
The model represented a Brissoneau Diesel Locomotive Class 1200 from CP (Portuguese Railways) in the standard orange/brown colour scheme, but my friend was a little surprised (not to say disappointed) with the overall looking of the model.
The first set of four photos clearly shows the challenge I had to deal with.
Saying that, he ask me what I could do to provide a second change to this model, mention that it would be a good idea to take this opportunity to apply a different colour scheme, used by Ferrovias Company, who operates now former CP Brissoneau Diesel Locomotives Class 1200.

The new yellow paint scheme was applied and I created the all set of decals applied to this model.

One of the functional couple was removed and instead a more realist one (but not functional) was installed.
I used the Roco Locomotive Detail Set (Ref. 40014) that provided the not functional coupler was well as other accessories

that added a more realist look to this model.


























 


A story with a happy end!

Hope you like it!.


Thanks.
Regards,
Ayala Botto

Hi,

"Wow", was what my friend said when he saw the "new improved" Ferrovias model!
He didn't believe that was the same model he had bought! 


Thanks.

Ayala Botto

Hi,
I had to dismount the all model and removed all the paint from all the pieces.
I put all the pieces in a plastic covered box (tupperware type) with Isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol) during one night.
In the next day I removed carefully the remains of the original paint with a tooth brush in a open space and with gloves!
It worked very well because the details remained untouched!
I had to rebuilt the hand-rails and other broken/missing pieces and then I applied the primer before the final yellow coach of paint (airbrush)
The decals where self-made.
The accessories of the ROCO reference mentioned also improved a lot the final looking of the model.

Regarding the decals:
I gatter as much photos as possible and then I draw the decals with the Corel Draw Software. It take 2 weeks just to create all decals for a model!
I print the decals in a laser colour printer in decals sheets that could be white or transparente depending on the type of decals I need to print.
Then I apply a gloss coat of varnhish all overal de the model and put the decals in place.
Finally a last coat of matt or semi-matt of varnhish depending on the mode.

As far as I know the model will be put in a bookshelf until my friend build a layout.


Thanks.
Regards,
Ayala Botto


P.S. Check the Health Guidelines when using  Isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol)!
