MPV S&C Video Unit by 3DR
« on: February 06, 2018, 10:54:49 am »
Just dug this model out, originally offered on this site as a Shapeways print and mechanization kit.  I have been slowly trying (over a year!) to get the yellow stable and as the roof is going grey i'm now happy with the sides.

I'm using a Zimo sound chip and it is now functional with the base coats of yellow and black dry and hard.



Now to research the details and add transfers.

V Nice.  What did you use for the yellow?

Cheers Jon  :)

As I am painting the MPV I am going to paint my Harsco Grinder at the same time so I have put the hardware and sound chip in tonight.

Quick update with the block color done.  The surfaces are currently gloss to help the transfers when they go on.

Almost done.  Needs some fine detail inked and painted.  With the windows in I reassembled it tonight and ran this test.

Waiting for paint to dry again  :)

Lots of small detail to paint before I start to add the transfers.

Almost done.  I debated adding the cantrails but decided against them as it was almost impossible to get them straight along the full length, and as they are almost invisible (unless they are squint).

Painting detail still required.  One thing I found is that no two real life units are identical, particularly the position of signage.

And finally



I need to make and add numbers, however she is substantially complete.

All of these models will be on running at the Berkshire Area Group N Soc. Show on our club modular layout on the 7th April.
