The Ultimate Weathering Studio
« on: March 27, 2014, 05:53:45 AM »
Hi all
As always I travel to work on the XPT to Sydney. As I usually have my own cabin I thought what better a spot to do some weathering in a XPT. Comes complete with portably swing away workbench, plenty of lighting very comfy seating and lots of floor space for the boxes or materials and stock to be worked on plus I have my own ensuite.
And the trip up to buffet for a cuppa is a short distance
I don't think I could get a more railway theme studio then this

Could you not just dangle them out the window? Let the train, take the strain?  :D

Don't they object to you using an airbrush?  :D

Your own cabin?!  :goggleeyes: That's the equivalent in the UK of hiring the Royal Train. It's the only way you'd get a private journey here...
