Webmaster Models
Model: N Scale SD9 #608 Front View
Notes: This is my model of SD9 #608, done using a Life Like SD7. I tried to stay as close to the prototype as I could. Details from Sunrise are a winter hatch, nose bell, firecracker antenna, and red strobe.
Model: N Scale SD9 #608 Back View
Notes: ModelFlex Reefer Orange, ATSF Silver, and DMIR Yellow paint were used. Decals were from the MicroScale EJ&E loco sheet.

Model: N Scale SW1200 #307 Front View
Notes: My 'brown scheme' switcher was done using a LifeLike SW1200 model. Paint used was ModelFlex Rail Brown, DMIR Yellow and ATSF Silver.
Model: N Scale SW1200 #307 Back View
Notes: Details from Sunrise were a 'weed cutter' plow, firecracker antenna, and red strobe. Decals were from the MicroScale EJ&E loco sheet.

Model: N Scale EJ&E Caboose
Notes: This cab is by no means accurate, but it's better than nothing. The model was an Atlas caboose. I added clear styrene on the inside for window glass. Paint used was ModelFlex Reefer Orange, DMIR Yellow, and some sort of gray on the trucks. A combination of decals from both the MicroScale J freight car set and J loco set were used. For some unknown reason, I used #630. I have no idea why. The whole thing was given a flat clear coat.

Model: N Scale SW1200 #305 Front View
Notes: My 'green scheme' switcher was done using a LifeLike SW1200 model. Paint used was ModelFlex CNW Green, with drops of Erie Yellow mixed in until I got the right shade. ATSF Silver was used on the trucks and tank. DMIR Yellow was used on the handrails and sills. Yellow logo decals were made for me by Tim Diez on his ALPS printer.

Model: N Scale SW1200 #301 Front View
Notes: #301 was built in the same manor as #305 above. Both units had Sunrise 'weed cutter' plows, firecracker antennas, and red strobes added. Decals came from the MicroScale loco sheet. I originally tried using a custom photo-etch handrail set so I could do one of the units that have full length handrails, but both sets I had fell apart after installed.

Model Paint Ideas
Webmaster - "I personally prefer the lighter ModelFlex Reefer Orange for road power. Some people prefer a darker BNSF type Orange. I've used ModelFlex Rail Brown for the brown switcher color, and a mixture of CNW Green and Erie Yellow to make the green switcher color. I added drops of yellow to the green and did tests until I liked it. DMIR Yellow works for handrails, and ATSF Silver for the 'pre-stripe scheme' tanks and trucks. I've found that colors will usually look darker on models than the real thing. This is mostly due to lack of light".
Century628 - "I've gotten good results with Floquil Reefer Orange, with a speck of red to deepen it".
Kam Miller - "For brown I use Floquil Rail Brown. For Orange, I use Reefer Orange with a few drops of Reefer White to tone it down a little. For the early Green I use Floquil Light Green".
Roger - "Mill Brown: Badger ModelFlex, 3 parts #16-62 DRG&W Gold & 2 parts #16-133 Gloss Brown. 'Old' Green (1950's-1960's): Floquil Marine #818690 Caprail Green. 'Old' Orange (Pre 1990's): Testors Model Masters, 1 part #2022 International Orange & 4 parts #2023 Blue Angles Yellow. 'Weathered' Orange: Polly Scale, 1 part #414392 & 1 part #404094. EJ&E Orange: Badger AccuFlex, 4 parts GN Orange & 1 part L&N Yellow."
Gregory Schmuldt - "I have done several road units... Airbrush base coat Floquil Reefer Orange, with a light coat of Krylon Popsicle safety orange. A light mist overcoat will slightly darken the Reefer Orange and provide a gloss surface for decals. Or: 7 to 1 ratio of Reefer Orange and Reefer Yellow, mix and apply using airbrush, let dry overnight and apply high gloss, decal, then apply satin or dull coat. The older units would be the 7 to 1 ratio, where as the new units with the white stripes tend to have more of a darker orange. My favorite for this is Reefer Orange and Krylon Orange".
