I bought and painted a Class 156 DMU from Shapeways which was fine except that it had gaping holes for windows. At first that didn't bother me but when I painted 80 gsm paper grey and glued it inside the coach bodies they looked much better. Then I also painted onto the windows modellers' Realistic Water to try to get a glazing effect. Didn't look too bad. The difficult part was the window vents. I tried painting the horizontal line on the Realistic Water with mixed results (even with masking tape - the left hand coach in the photo) and also tried painting a white line on grey-painted paper and gluing it onto the windows (the right hand coach in the photo). Neither result was perfect but I prefer it to having gaping holes for windows. I just rested the coach bodies on the underframes which is they look to be sitting a bit high in the photos. The lack of underfloor engine detail is noticeable so I might have a go at that next. Has anyone tried it?
The Class 158 DMU, which I don't have yet, looks to have similar gaping window holes but those windows won't require the horizontal line as the units are air conditioned.
Anyone know where we can obtain the train operating companies' logos in T scale (Abellio Greater Anglia in this case)?
