Accurascale O Gauge HUO. Step 7 - Underframe.

Mick Bonwick


The underframe in my reference photograph doesn't show too much in the way of rust colours, being mostly built-up track grime. To replicate this appearance, I have used a thin airbrushed coat of Railmatch Sleeper Grime to form the basis. There was already some deliberately unmasked overspray from the Revell 84 used on the hopper body at the beginning of the process.


The airbrush (Iwata Eclipse) was held at about 4" from the underframe with the vehicle upside down on the turntable and moved from one end to the other several times, with only the faintest trace of paint leaving the nozzle.
