Fireless Narrow Gauge Engine - part five

With the construction finished, it was on to adding some paint. I wanted a run-down soot black with just odd touches of colour. I used a large paintbrush and built up the colour with both drybrushing and washes. The coloured highlights were red for the motion and touches of grey or brown for the unusual features.

I have only ever seen black and white images of these narrow gauge engines and have assumed an over-all black colour with only slight variations in the cab, boiler and boiler front, which in photos appears to be fabric? I still have some more weathering to carry out before I am satisfied with  the finish, but at this moment, I am pleased with the result.
