Improved Coffee Pots


A couple of years ago, I managed to bag a "Coffee Pot" railcar in On30. This is a model I'd fancied for some time, but was put off by the plasticy coach body. It's remained in the maturing pile since then, but at the weekend I spotted some that had been improved for inspiration. 

David Bailey, builder of the excellent "Karolina Falls" layout, kindly allowed me to take photographs of his models. Modestly, he tells me that the work simply entailed painting the lower sides blue or green, and the roof a nice shade of grey. The rest of the model stays the same. 

Despite the simplicty of the work, the results transform the base model. Impressive!
