    I model Irish Railways CIE & GNRI From 1960's to 1990's.Some are kits & others are bought and kitbashed. some are made from scratch. All rolling stock is wheathered which i think makes all the difference & realistic.I love to see other peoples work & i know how many hours it takes, but it's worth it.

  1. GS&WR green paint

    I think a wee bit of yellow in the second one might work for the C Class.
  2. Mixing Paint Colours - online tool

    The colour wheel is very useful. And the only way to get a colour you are happy with is to mix it. Unless there is a ready made paint colour that is just right.
  3. That looks great, well done. It is important to get all the corrections sorted out before release or you will hear a lot of criticism from across the water.
  4. GS&WR green paint

    Yes, i think it will be 3 or 4. I will look at it in the daylight and see what it is like. I will mix some paint until it looks right.
  5. Robert's Workbench

    that looks so good.
  6. GS&WR green paint

    I have done a quick test of Humbrol No2 & No3 on a coach. It's a bit rough but from left to right 1 No2 + yellow 2 No3 Brunswick 3 No2 + No3 4 No3 + yellow 5 No2 + No3 + yellow
  7. GS&WR green paint

    Thanks JHB, the coaches will be the same as the coach at the start of this page. Just waiting for the postman.
  8. GS&WR green paint

    Thanks, i have a tin of Humbrol gloss green No2 and i will put some yellow in it and that might be ok.
  9. GS&WR green paint

    Thanks JHB, so it will be CIE green and eau de nil lining.
  10. GS&WR green paint

    OK, so they were only green when they became CIE coaches.
  11. GS&WR green paint

    Very good, thanks. So do you think the Bachmann green is too dark? I might try and mix my own and see.
  12. GS&WR green paint

    I want to paint 2 coaches in GS&WR green. So i need to know is the dark green on the Murphy Models/Bachmann correct. Or should it be lighter like the coach in The quiet man film? The 2 pictures are here for you to see the difference.
  13. Robert's Workbench

    That colour looks good, try to vary the colour a bit so some are lighter and darker so they won't all look the same.
