This is looking great.

What is your technique for the 'leather' vest?

Hi Ko
The technique is mixing an acrylic with a transparent semi gloss, nothing special. I used these products:

I agree, great finish on the leather tones and sheen level.

This build is coming along beautifully.

Thanks for the feedback

A little preview ... it seems a bit like the progress, but it took time to paint the base with the tracks and try to give it realism, the photos

Hi Omar.

Excellent progress! The sleepers and the tracks look great. My only suggestion would be to put some more work into the track ballast. It looks to uniform and fake. I think a bit of random colour and a good dose of black panel line wash to give it some depth would really make it pop.

Looking forward to more progress reports.

Cheers, D

Hello everyone!!!
Finally I gave it a touch more, it did not finish convincing me, as it had been, I think it took more realism, right?

Just discovered this forum and this topic. Great build.
When you are ready to assemble the wheels i will suggest a good dryfit to check if all the wheels touch the rails.

Good day
Thanks for the comments and advice, always add up, do not stop giving your opinion.
Now moving forward with the coal cart, the first stage. The idea is to complete it as if to give it a coat of red paint ...
Progress:

The wagon:

It starts to take color ... all black















I will give another hand of black, because, some places did not been cover, it so difficult to paint in only one hand...

You are making some very fine lemonade out of that lemon of a kit.

Sadly Trumpeter really dropped the ball on the kit. An impressiv deed given the number of complete (and sometimes functioning) BR52 and BR52.80 availabel

Omar,
Great work! I just found this thread and I can't wait to see more.
One question, what are the blue disks in the tender chassis. I hope that's what you call it, I'm not too familiar with steam trains.
Take care and stay safe,
Don "Lakota"

Hi Boys, thanks by your comments
Its a kit a lemon, really... the blue disks that I put in the chassis are to ocult the marks of inyection, anfortunatly the kit has a lot of them in visible places. Its a plasticard, nothing special.
Take care and stay safe you too.

Omar, the kit might be considered a lemon in terms of accuracy, but it looks to be fitting together well and you are definitely turning it into a diamond, outstanding work!

Maybe a bit late but you might want to search for pictures of the

Wiener Steifrahmentender 4 T30

(that is likely what the Trumpeter kit includes). The few pictures I have seen have far smoother side walls then the kit.

Omar,

You are doing great. I very much appreciate your skill and willingness to share.

For those of you who are interested, there is an amazing website
Railways of Germany. It is my go-to for Teutonic trains.

If you would like to see color photos of mainline steam operating in 1970-71, with some great shots of weathering and the color of track, look here: Steam on the Mosel 1970 und 1971

You will see that most of the ties are heavily stained with grease and oil, having a satin very dark gray color. In the next section, they are matte and gray. I surmise the shiner ties are in a yard and station track, where the engines set, or work hard: https://www.drehscheibe-online.de/foren/read.php?17,5306198

Track ballast is interesting, you can identify some railroads by the type and quality. (Look up CNW "Pink Lady" ballast, and an intereting book on MOW equipment: Pink Lady.) Some, at least during some administrations, would haul ballast far to maintain a "company look" of their track. Others would crush and use whatever suitable stone was in the region their track ran through. It appears that much of Germany's ballast is a brown or dark gray.
