Austral Tourmaster 3

Post by Rowdy75 on Thu 18 Mar 2010, 3:42 pm

I have wanted one of Weico's coaches for a long time and finally got around to getting one. It will eventually go on my model railway layout when that eventually gets built, just have to extend the era being modeled a bit. Until then though and possibly after it may find employment in running DV8V8's cars off the road in our Blacktop Warrior games . May have to add a coach stop to my servo, which will get finished one day.






Work will progress simultaneously with my latest wagon kit from Wuiske.

Possibly, but I don't want to extend the era of my layout by that much.

Looks like lots of detail painting to be done there. Should look great when finished.

Progress has been rather slow (weather, work). The coach now has the basic colouring and a small start has been made on the chassis.
Body has had 2 coats of games workshop skull white, then the top was coated in Humbrol gloss white with aluminum for the lower.
