It has been some time since I have contributed anything here....but I have not been completely idle.  Here are a few shots of my newest LV model, SW-1 # 112.  
112 was an occasional visitor to the West Pittston Branch....the branch I lived near, and now model. The REAL 112 has been restored to operation....and I have visited her a number of times at the BR&W.....so naturally I had to add this famous SW-1 to my layout!

Lou.......you are absolutely correct!  The "dudes" are too clean!  I cant believe I never thought of  "weathering" the crews clothing. Thanks!  The WAG car is going to Nelsons Furniture in Kingston.....it's full of leather.

 Been a long long long time since I posted.I completed two units to add to my LV roster.Both started as Ath. Genesis undecorated models.I completed 318 about six months ago so I'll present that unit first.
 I painted the unit using Model Master insignia red.I like that it matches the Atlas factory painted models.I used MM insignia orange for the grabs and railings and Floquil grimey black for the trucks and fuel tank.Microscale decals and the weathering was done with pencil,paint and powders.
  Lv 318



 
 Next 300.I used the same process on this unit.The unit itself did not come with the speed recorder,sun shades or the winterization hatch.I used a DW speed recorder and P2K parts for the shades and hatch.I also added the extra grabs on the right sides of the long and short hoods.





 
  300 and 318 teamed

Beautiful models Chris!   very nicely done!
thats an excellent red! im going to be looking for a red to use for some G-gauge GP38-2's eventually, I will definitely look at the model master paint!  
What color primer did you use underneath?

 Scot,thank you.  I started air brushing back in 85 and never painted anything above ho scale.My first project was an Athearn 40ft box car painted for the RDG.Being new to  air brushing I followed recommendations with the use of a primer before applying the color and I wasn't happy with the results,seem too thick.I didn't use a primer on my second project and I was pleased with the results,long story short,I haven't used a primer since.With all the models painted over the years I've never run into the problem of chipping paint.In my process I do apply dull coat to the model 3 t0 6 times.

Chris,
    The two Geeps look great! What color primer did you use? I also like the way you darkened the vents and door latches and any other areas that would be dark and dirty on the prototype! The trucks look good too with the highlighting over the Grimy black.

Today at Bergen Point Station can be seen a Lehigh Valley Pup #265.
 ( It is a Kitbashed Athearn SW1500, what Athearn called it, kitbashed into a LVRR SW8 with Dynamic breaks).

Brain, Dave, Chris - OUTSTANDING modeling! You guys really caught the essence of the Valley, IMHO.
