i get my stuff from everything airbrush,

Dukedog

for water based paints i use water, it takes a bit of experimenting getting the mix right. i use about 20% water. then adjust the pressure, when you first start with the airbrush it does take some time to get the paint coming out right but after a bit of time like everything it becomes easier. when cleaning i just use warm water and put my finger over the nozzle to send the air backwards cleaning the inside.

when using enamels i use normal box standard white spirit, 2L bottle same as above with mixing but the cleaning i use white spirit and a stiff paint brush. i should invest in some mixing fluid and see if they improve the results.

THE CLASS 37 with a bit of dirt:cool:

 

got round to doing the 37 last night to complete the ballast train. any comments good or bad fire away. this was my first loco weathering and it was a bit scary turning the airbrush to a limeted edition loco:???: it is very limeted now:D

first shots show the loco before

 



 



 



 



now turn the clock forward a few years and after a heavy days work

 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

as i said  before if you want a how to just ask and i will do a thread in the weathering section. or any questions just ask here;-)

Matt

Matt your dirt weathering has come out very well its more dirtier than i like them but each to their own really. i must admit i am tempted to have a go with the airbrush i have a revell one nothing special but i do have a compressor i use with my nail gun i assume you can turn down the pressure.

i noticed you have remembered the windscreen wiper marks did you use a cotton bud or something?

You have not put on the 2 pride of valley nameplates yet so you will have to give them a quick squirt when you have fixed them

I have the same loco myself

A great job Matt giving us all incentive to have a go

cheers Brian.w

Matt,you brave man ! turned out well tho,nice job.

as for mixes i read somewhere that you can use white spirit with acrylics +emulsion
it helps the paint dry better, i will try to find the article cos i might be wrong.

Brianw,you compressor will be fine,you adjust the air at the gun,but i would recomend a moisture trap in the line.

Matt, wasn't it you who posted on the old forum that he was looking for a dvd that showed you how to use an airbrush? If so, did you find one?

Brian

the windows are sprayed then i use a cocktail stick dipped in white spirits to get the window wiper marks. i done the outline with the point then broke the stick and done the centre. i was thinking of doing graffiti this way. paint the graffiti colour then cover with the same colour as the model say BR BLUE then before completely dry remove the BR BLUE leaving the yellow underneath. you can get a more defined edge with a cocktail stick than a brush.

owen

i will try the emulsion and white spirit when i use emulsion again. i have checked out that site and had a read and ii will go back for another:cool:

Les

yes i was asking about a dvd, i never did find one that covered what i wanted. i just read about it then started doing scenery then clouds then some wagons and now this 37. scenery is a good way to start i found. it doesn't matter if you make a mistake:lol: try some track ballast first or a scenic are before laying grass. i found it good for the mortar in walls for a base layer as the paint is blown into the cracks, then a final grime coat with the wall upside down at 45 degrees so you get a shadow effect.

Matt do you have the wheels turning when spraying the dirt as i have seem quite a number of weathered locos that look great untill they run because only the exposed wheel when  spraying got sprayed so it looks strange when it runs?

bob

i have blue 37\ 0 that is next on the workbench. i will do a how to, i wouldn't say a how to more the way i do it:lol: as i am sure things i do can be done better.

brian

good point about the wheels, i never thought of that:???: with the sealion wagons i removed the bogies and pushed them along whilst spraying. the 37 the thought never crossed my mind. i have checked since reading your post and the wheels are hardly visible so you can't see any patches. i think with other locos like a warship this could be a problem.  maybe using a third hand holding wires from the controller onto the wheels would solve this.

I can remember about a year or so ago a chap weathered his steam loco it looked smart until he run it you coud then see lines of plain black on wheel spokes where the spray had not gone because the wheels wernt turning when he did it.
