Paul Bellemore shared these
images of GBW models he is running on the Windsor (Ontario)
Modular Railroad Club. The photos were taken at the Essex Model
GBW 319 on the right is an early Atlas
C-424 model with molded on details. Paul shaved off the details and added
coupler lift bars, MU hoses, all-weather windows, and even cut out the grills
near the dynamic brake housing and fitted some micro mesh inside to give it a
see through look. The beacon is a small bulb with the tip of the bulb
painted with Tamiya model paint see-through
orange color. The loco is fitted with a Train
Control Systems decoder.
GBW 312 on the left is a newer Atlas C-424. Paul shaved off the dynamic
brake housing, filled in the grills and added a scratch built snow
Paul painted both models with caboose red paint, weathered with various
water-based paints. He admits that both models are not quite finished and
he promises send pictures when he finishes the models.
