    Default Canadian Pacific M4 Finished

    With a lot of spraypainting-help from my brother, I finally managed to finish my second CPR Kitbashing project, an M4 Consolidation from a Bachmann Spectrum model. For the Paintjob we experimented with using a Matt finish on upwardfacing surfaces to emphasize dirt and soot, and a satin/gloss mix on the Sides of Cab, boiler and Tender that would be wiped regularly and therefore maintain a shiny finish. I am very happy with the effect, which of course doesnt show as well in the photos but is still noticable in some.

    The usual reason seems to be that the photos are too large. Try resizing them to 60% (pixels), and uploading to your profile page.

    It looks and runs great and the layout looks terrific, too, especially the asphalt road/crossing.

    Cool loco cool layout. You've done good there and captured the feel really nicely. 10/10
    Thanks, Tom

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be
