Removing model train decals,wooden train set table asda,o scale station plans - You Shoud Know

N Scale Atlas, Life-Like, Graham Farish, Micro-Trains, Minitrix and other N scale discussion. The front of the tender shell is held just by friction and will come loose with a little coaxing after the rear is slightly lifted. Have you decided yet weather you are going to keep this loco, or get a 2001 model with a DCC plug? No, I'm not, but it doesn't take loads of experience to remove the back truck, hold it down, and use a razor saw to cut off the old coupler. I got up the nerve to loosen the chassis fasteners and removed the motor and nothing fell out of place. The tough part of converting this loco, may be getting the motor back in the frame, after the wires are soldered onto the brush housings,* and insulating tape is put between those housings and the loco frame.
If you have an old locomotive that is looking a bit worn down you should consider repainting it and returning it to its former glory. The body is easily removed by unscrewing two small screws located on each side of the locomotive.
Before applying the primer I used a very fine wet foam abrasive block to get rid of any stubborn paint and help the primer bond to the plastic. If you don’t have an airbrush to paint your locomotive you can use modellers aerosol spray cans that are specifically designed to give a smooth coat when painting models.
I've been busy building or modifying some more freight cars appropriate for the 1930s-era version of Sweethome Chicago.
Possibilities for the USRA hopper rebuilt with panel sides include, among others, Delaware & Hudson and, I think, Central Vermont, Grand Trunk Western and New Haven. The final stage in constructing the body of the bank is to apply a separate texture to the rear of the building.
Just two thing remain to be done before we are ready to export the model, and that is to "collapse the stacks" of all the individual parts of the model and to remove unnecessary polygons from the model. I removed the forward truck on the tender, which allows removal of drawbar, as my work around.
The brass housings are usually mounted(either screw threaded, or more commonly, just pushed in) the plastic back piece of the motor. The easiest way to do this is to wet a paper towel in ice water and lay it over the brass housing, then melt or cut a small hole in the towel just big enough to expose part of the housing. If it’s your first attempt at painting a locomotive you may want to buy a cheap locomotive on eBay to practice on, I purchased the HO locomotive pictured in this article from eBay for $15.


This is where the jewellers screwdrivers mentioned on the basic model railroader tool set page come in handy. I would recommend wearing gloves for this as brake fluid can be harsh on the skin when exposed for periods of time. Primer was applied in two coats making sure not to apply it too thick as this can cause the primer to run. You don’t want to use regular aerosol cans as they don’t spray the paint fine enough for use on a small scale models. Applying the second color is the most difficult part of the paint process as you have to ensure that the masking tape has been applied correctly and all lines are straight so take your time. Again apply the composite picture with a UVW Mapping of Box and use Unwrap UVW to map all faces to one of the columns in the picture. Some people prefer to do this as they go along, but I personally prefer to leave it until the model is just about finished.
Since we can never view the building from underneath, we will never see the bottom of the building and it should therefore be removed. They wont be used anymore.) Removing the brush assemblies is perfect for protecting the plastic from heat, but there is a down side to this option. Next the plastic lights, horns and window are removed by gently prying them out using a small flat head screwdriver. Using a toothbrush coat the body with the brake fluid and allow to sit for a few minutes to penetrate the paint. For this locomotive I will be applying 2 colors, firstly the base coat is applied then the section for the secondary color is masked off and then painted. This kit was a bit more difficult than most as the side castings were slightly banana-shaped (one rose slightly to the right and the other dropped down). A second box of the same dimensions is needed at the bottom of the column, so hold down the Shift key and use the Move tool to drag the original box to the bottom of the column. In the Command Panel, right-click the words Unwrap UVW and choose Collapse All from the context menu which pops up.
Whenever you choose to do it, the removal of excess polygons is a vital task because each polygon that Trainz has to draw is taking valuable time, and if too many polygons have to be drawn it will slow down Trainz to the point where jerkiness begins. In the Command Panel click the "+" sign beside the words Editable Mesh and the click on Polygon. If you are using knuckle couplers, at some point you will need to learn how to replace Rapidos with them.


The orange and gray wires from the decoder should be soldered(*See important footnote before you solder!) one on each brush. To make room to fit the motor, insulating tape and wires all back in the space originally filled by only the motor, it may be necessary to grind away a little of the metal frame on either side of the motor. Directly under each brass piece there will be a very tiny carbon brush, and an equally tiny spring. After a couple of coatings the paint will start to flake away, now the toothbrush is used to scrub the body removing the paint. Select the whole model (this can be done by dragging the Move tool around the outside of the model, or by typing "H" on the keyboard and clicking the All button in the Select Objects dialog when it appears. In gMax's Perspective window, turn the model if necessary and then click the base of the box. You can do this by selecting the part you want to work with and then right-clicking the viewport and choosing Hide Unselected from the quad menu. Most of the info I've been able to find assumes a level of knowledge that I don't yet have. When you have deleted all the unnecessary polygons, continue to the next part of the Tutorial where we will export the model to Trainz and create the essential config.txt file. Compared to your planned tasks of adding a decoder, speaker, firebox fire and external lights, changing a coupler is easy. This turns your motor into a fish line sinker, as it can not run without the brush and spring. In gMax's Perspective view click the rear of the box (you may have to turn it round first). Now use the Material Editor to create a new texture using the image that we created for the rear of the building in Part 1 of the tutorial. The words Edit Mesh will appear underneath (in italics to show that more than one object is selected).
