Koltorp - First Atlas painted

This article was published Feb 12, 2017.

title


Sides are built up and hole shebang painted. I found out several smart ideas during this build, but I also made so many mistakes next wagon can´t possibly be worse.. So I guess I announce this first as a "test wagon".. It´s been both drama and police detective work. Some parts should stick out, some should not. Airbrushing the sides was a smart move, hand-painting the rusty inside was not.., or at least not finished. Lucky I need at least four of them, maybe six or eight to call it a "string of tubs"..

Here is today´s work.
