Star, I'm sorry to cause you any worry, and thank you for caring.Yes I could have got on-line but it ran thur my mind and well I never did, sorry. I ran up to Scotland before New Year to catch the last of duck/goose season then back to England, Left there then up to Scotland till June, spent way to much time in Iceland !!!!! what a place think I fell in love about 100 times a day then got late June off to Montana and home for now.
Have to call GHQ this coming week and speak with Chanlor and place my order and start shutting down the gardens then on to the trains.Sorry for being so long winded. Till the next post which will be sooner take care.
Cool

Man it never ends !!! Been busy but that beats sitting around with my !
So I've been messing with Black Pre shading, I mean all the other scales do it why not N scale ?? This is my old test shell so far so good I think ? Next one will be the GHQ excavator and this will not be a test run !! Once I get her built I'll be posting pictures of the steps.Sorry for the poor pictures using the wife's camera and not liking it.

Just a few more test shots.

Looks good to me!

There's no reason why preshading can't be used in just about any scale.

Ok, So I began the pre-shadowing and it's going to be a really big learning curve, The first set of pictures is the GHQ excavator before primer, Be warned this is picture heavy !










Next we have the arears which I wanted to shadow.







Now we the GHQ excavator wit white primer and black shadow, If anyone wants to know I use Tru-Color paint. As you can see I was making adjustments thur the entire time I was painting.






Went a wee bit heavy here.




Again making adjustments as I go looking left to right.

One more note,in drilled a hole in the base of the frame and glued a small pin in place this way I can move the body around from time to time. Weight was added to the main body cavitie.



The top side.

ok so here it is I have mixed feeling about it but this is all new to me. My first big mistake was last night I transferred Cat yellow spray paint from the can to a mixing jar and let it sit over night, I forgot how thin it is and you'll see it in the pictures

Overall I think it's ok but I feel I did a lot of extra work to get this were it's at while I could have done the same thing with weathering ???? Need to do it again but this time with a boxcar and instead of a white coat I'll do the base coat in black then use the white for the shadowing. I think the larger the subject the better it will turn out but I plan on doing it again maybe with a GHQ truck something a bit bigger. Please give feed back , your eyes may see something I don't.
P.S. I did touch up the tracks with grimy black.
