How to Paint a Steam Locomotive 2 DVD Set w/Bonus 3rd DVD
Have you ever wanted to learn to paint your own model steam locomotives? Now you can, and it’s easy to learn how! This new video presentation – “How to Paint a Steam Locomotive” – shows you, step by step using easy to understand methods, exactly how to paint and finish a steam locomotive.
And we don’t just show you once! The TWO DVD set starts with a chapter on tools and techniques to get you headed in the right direction. Next you get three detailed chapters covering three separate painting projects: One, a basic-level Bachmann 2-8-0; Two, how to paint a brass Shay, a two-truck PFM 70-tonner detailed and finished as Sugar Pine Lumber Company #10; and Three, a brass Mikado, a Westside Models of the Minarets & Western Railway #104, an MK-10 class.
Every step is covered – disassembly, cleaning, masking, paint blends and mixing, airbrush use, prep for paint, painting, touch up, decals, final clear finish – the whole works. Nothing is left to chance. This project uses Badger ModelFlex paint, but other brands will work as well.
Painting a locomotive is just half of the story. Some modelers prefer the brand-new, clean look for their motive power, but those who want things to look a bit aged and used may find the “Weathering” DVD, a companion to the “How to Paint a Steam Locomotive” DVD, very useful.
In this DVD, we show you all the steps we took to complete the weathering on the Bachmann 2-8-0 and the M&WRy #104 Mikado. Paint washes, weathering powder and airbrushing are all covered in detail as we add a touch of age and road-weary miles to these engines.
