Ah, thanks Jamie. A bit big though :P
Do you have pictures of the details, like pipes and stuff around the boiler, frame and tender...

Cheers
Stevo

Ok all,

How do I paint the wheels, running gear, etc? (spray, hand brush, etc)

Cheers
Stevo

Hey Steve,

You'll want to hand brush as spray could get onto the electrical contacts and would be hard to clean out.

Cheers.

In the distant past, before time began and I had a shortline model railway set in Pennsy, I used to use markers (textas) to colour running gear on the steam locos to avoid any issues of paint fouling the mechanism etc. Always worked well :)

Oh... Get a couple of different brands & sizes of texta - they dry in different shades, so you can avoid a 'uniform' look that way.

OH! As always, test it BEFORE you ruin your loco - but please dont test by tagging a bus shelter or rail station :P :D Just kidding!

Test on metal as well, textas will look very different on paper than the glossier look you'll tend to get on metal.

Didn't ruin a single loco - golly!

The extra details are pretty much finished, now just the brass bits...

G'day postst,

Stevo, you might want to check out these as an alternative to the use of 'texta pens' by Para/Paddy above...

Floquil Paint Markers

...and I would hope that you are going to 'clean up' the inside of the window openings and 'flatten/straighten' the bottom of the cab on the side showing in the second image above, before you even think about getting out the paint...

...otherwise, that's as good as it gets...

Actually, Garry, thats a bracing pipe or something that passes under the cab :)

It is still way away from painting though...

Ah, it's part of the blow down setup (comes off the top of the blow down muffler IIRC). :)
