A 1950's vintage model
(a memorabilia 'cold-case').


I'm not certain of the manufacturer or origin... but I think I acquired it in a trade with my cousin when we were kids. It may be a Varney model, or a car from an Atlas trainset. Apparently I put Kadee couplers and trucks on it, but I honestly don't remember doing it.

Anyway, I wanted to experiment with the effects of diesel soot and southwestern dust, so I got out the Badger, and hit it with Vallejo until this came out.
Sealed with DullCote.

I'll start on the lower end stuff. I have paint, brushes. An unused air brush too. I have some "grease" or waxed based paint from tamiya similar to cosmetics. But I got no pigment dust.

Earlier today I saw a video of some gons being pulled from a scrap yard.
They look just like the ones you did some time ago...

Much appreciated.
