Have started weathering and converting my Roco 44 into a TCDD plate number 56703 loco.

I have started with the detailing of the cab interior. Micro surgery as I put it, tough have to give credit to Roco for the detail bits.





Shall try to post as I go along.

Thanks guys for the nice words, it encourages me a lot. I was scared stiff when I first weathered a gondol wagon let a lone a 200 euro loco!

But now seem to get over that fear.

Neil hi,

On the cab interior, and as a matter of fact, on all the reds of TCDD or DB, I have settled with Revells water based acrylic " Karminsrot matte". They come in these blueish cubic plastic bottles.

The pipes and the other pieces ,I again used Revells but synthetic enamel colors.

On the loco body its all Vallejo colors from the " Traincolor set".

Cheers

Hi Jimmy, don't let the clean coal fool you. Its lumps of coal that I have gradually scattered and the white stuff is the PVC glue which hasn't dried at the time of the photo.

I basically use acrylic water based paints along with pastel powder.

Superbly done Baykal!! I love the streaks on the tender where the water is loaded.

The lighting in some of the pictures is excellent too - it really makes the locomotive feel like it's standing on a real siding in the glare of the real mid day sun! Perhaps it is natural lighting?

An absolutely fantastic transformation - from a model locomotive to a really believable model of a locomotive - I like everything about it, especially like the subtle textures overall.... and I love the front end and running gear!

It really is very, very nice work... you have an excellent "artists eye" for this sort of thing! But...You are going to have to weather that lovely backhead a wee bit now!

Stunning work Baykal - did you have photos to work from or is it all inspiration? Either way a very satisfying result.

I'm really impressed with the finished result - modelling at its very, very best.

Thanks for the pictures Baykal - just one question - when can I send my 150X over for the same treatment (that's after Richard has fitted a sound decoder to it, but he dos'nt know it yet !) ?

He obviously doesn't trust me with locomotives yet although I have done a couple of wagons.
