For the modern day modeler, with the task of having a tag on pretty much every piece of rolling stock.

http://www.graffiticreator.net/

a nice little tool to get/create some ideas, play with colors without screwing up a model.
You can move the letters of your tag around once it is created, change width and hight of the letters.
If you want to make decals of it, send it to your printer and save it as a pdf file. That can be imported into a photo editor and scaled to size.

My first attempt in weathering a boxcar. Not perfect yet, still got to learn some technics and have not used all mediums as of yet. This car is Airbrushed Acrylics, Acrylic washes and Chalks (dry and in alcohol).
Oil paint weathering is next on my list.

Another one finished. 1:8th scale Feldbahn Dumper 0,5 qbm capacity with a wooden tipple. I saw this in an O&K Catalog released right after WWI when steel sheets were rare and expensive.
This could also represent a "quickfix" of an owner, that did not want to wait/pay for a spare tipple to come in.

Kick off of the Model Railroads & Structures Live Show. I think this will be a great addition to existing podcast´s and live shows. Thanks to Ron Pare for starting this.
Maybe some European Modelers see this and are willing to participate.

Part 2 of my Intermodellbau video. This time the Layouts only, well, not all of them but the ones i could get to to film. Decent Lighting makes life so much easier...

Some random neat train stuff from the 2015 Intermodellbau Show in Dortmund Germany. I´ll do a separate video for the layouts on display.

In episode #7 i explain how i modeled the flairs that protect the railroad crossing on 11th AVE. Easy, inexpensive and not often modeled on layouts... i wonder why...
