I just consulted the VP and she says Yellow, so be it.
Here F9B 143 is ready for service, Using brushed on chalks (Bragdon Enterprises), and thin washes air brushed on, cleaned the wheels with Alcohol, and out to work she goes.
and after weathering
Thanks for looking.
Very nice, your modeling skills on locos and rolling stock has always impressed me. Am glad that you are FRISCO modeler.
Not too much, just right. Your on your game, Tom.
Superb work,Tom! I can't hardly see my screen 'cause of the drool!! Great stuff!
Tom, I agree with Jim that your weathering is more in line with a model than the prototype. In my opinion some overwhelm the model with too much weathering, but yours is perfect to my taste. One thing I noticed was the kick plates on the doors where the crew would have kicked the door with their boots to help open them causing more discoloration at that point. Another great example of modeling which we are look for when you submit work that you have done.
Thanks guys for the kind words.
I want to give kudos to Richard Lawler (Pensive) as he had the final piece to putting this together, he must have been among the last people on the planet with grills that I could fit to an F9B and he was willing to part with them, thanks Richard.
And thanks to everyone that helped with info and insight to the project.
Working on a large project now
You are welcome Tom. When I bought the grills, I did not have a specific project in mind; they just looked neat. I did also bought the horizontal grills and used them to duplicate a Model Power Frisco E8A. http://www.frisco.org/vb/album.php?albumid=148&attachmentid=14220. Those Highliner shells were neat and I did have visions of building an F9B at one time. Tom, you've done an excellent job of realizing that vision. I wish the Highliner shell and the grills were still generally available.
