|HR D19 3rd Class Coach|
The coach body was air brushed with Phoenix P727 HR Dark Green 1885-1912 (Dull). I thought at first it was too dull and tried a coat of gloss varnish but that was too bright and I reverted to a duller finish. The chassis was air brushed and then dry-brushed by hand though not extensively. The couplings were blackened with Carr's Metal Black, which is more durable in use that paint.
|HR D19 Interior with Passengers.|
The interior was more difficult than the exterior as there was a lot of masking to be done and everything took several coats of paint. I think I made it even more difficult by gluing the seats in the compartments before I painted them; I painted them by hand to give them some texture and it took at least three coats of paint. I've only done a basic job on the interior, there's very little detail though it looks fine from outside even without the pictures on the bulkhead above the seats. I might add these later, I'm not sure if there was a mirror there as well, anyway it's a detail that will have to wait as I've started work on the Wee Ben...stripped her down, getting her ready for the paint shop.
