Ertl 2803 1:43 scale diecast model of the 1949 Ford Coupe - Green Version

Ertl 2803 1:43 scale diecast model of the 1949 Ford Coupe. This is a close replica of the 1949 Ford coupe. The diecast model has rubber tires and interior details. The model would make a nice addition to an O scale model railroad scene. This model is the green painted version. Prototype Data: The 1949 Ford was the first all-new automobile design introduced by the Big Three after WWII, civilian production having been suspended during the war. The 1946-1948 models from Ford, GM, and Chrysler...

Industrial green

I've been using Painters touch satin moss green for this but it takes more work than I want to do. Any suggestions for industrial green preferably in acrylic?

Joe, Evergreen and green beret, are the two types of green that i used. After weatherizing they obviously turn dark. for better result I spray the plastic pieces with krylon flat clear coat. Andre.

Andre The color on the Painters touch is a really good match for industrial green but I find myself spraying sometimes 10 light coats so it doesn't run and still having to hold the can 3' from what I'm painting. This is an MTH truss bridge that's hard enough to paint with spray cans without having trouble with the paint. I use a lot of Painters touch and this is the only color I have real problems with. Who makes evergreen and green beret? Joe

I had a chance to visit this museum many years ago. I had no idea that this museum existed until one of my employees took me on a tour after we completed a client visit. The Big Boy was the highlight of the visit. When you stand next to it, it sure is massive. if you have never seen a Big Boy in person and you are near Green Bay, it is worth seeing. Thanks for the post Dave. It brought back memories.

Old news re: coal and oil and RR workers

This topic has been beaten to death I'm sure. Heck I think grass is growing along the manicured U.P. ROW that goes through Cedar Rapids waiting for a train, especially coal hauls, to run. http://insideenergy.org/2016/0...it-railroad-workers/ Check out a follow-on story at article bottom, where a Smithsonian exhibit about Green Energy closed in North Dakota museum. Yeah, I would be upset too.

Atlas 6505-2 Evans Double Plug Door Boxcar

Atlas 6505-2 Evans Double Plug Door Boxcar This Atlas O scale model is a very detailed scale model of an Evans 53 foot double plug door boxcar. It is painted green with lettering representing early Tropicana boxcars. Although I could not locate photos of a prototype for this particular car the green paint scheme is likely based on a very early prototype railcar. Looking for prototype photos of this Evans car or a similar Tropicana car.

FasTrack Curves Turning Green

Zach K ·
So I have had my 12' x 8' layout finished for about a year, while construction was started back in 2012. I just recently noticed two separate sections of O-36 FasTrack curves have turned an odd shade of green. At first I assumed the color was the result of sloppy work from when I applied grass around the track, but adjoining sections of track are still the usual grey. Has anybody else had their track do this?

Re: FasTrack Curves Turning Green

Looks like discoloration as a result of UV exposure. Perhaps a run of track was made that didn't use UV-stabilized plastic. TRW

I took a bright LED torch around the layout and discovered two sections of 10" straights seem to be starting the transformation! I think I can rule out the grass bleeding color as one section has nothing but ballast surrounding it. Certainly is puzzling!

I would venture a guess to be a bad batch of plastic. Or more specifically the color additive. Degrades over time, causing a change in color. I've seen it in other plastic products before. One bad bottle of color additive can cause it to happen, and won't be known for awhile as it takes time to change color. You could always put a figure there who looks like he's mowed the grass onto the track!

Those were the Alien produced version before Lionel started using an Asian manufacturer. No, I haven't seen anything like this reported on the forum or personally. One former member had trouble with his after trying Simple green as a track cleaner. Have you tried wiping it with a cloth with alcohol to determine if it is glue overspray leaching the green color? perhaps just a cloth damp with water. Did you use track expander paste?
Reply

Re: FasTrack Curves Turning Green

EscapeRocks ·
This is interesting. I have all generations of Fastrack, hundreds of pieces, and I have never seen this before. Someone mentioned it above: is it at all possible that your glue/water mix for the grass is somehow slowly leeching the color onto the road bed due to imperceptible over-spray/application?

Zach Yes I did have some discolored originally. It was a different shade of gray. Somewhat darker, not green. I had figured it was a batch color difference. I did see that same color green you show after I did all my dusting with landscaping material (a lot of it) . That is what it looks like to me. Totally a guess on my part. It made no difference to me because I used a mixture of black ink and water to darken all of my several hundred feet of fast track before I use a ballast. I will say a...

Years ago, when color slides were a big part of photography, I was using a processing lab that returned the slides to me in nifty plastic containers, rather than the Kodak cardboard sleeves. The containers came in both blue and gold plastic. Now, 30 years later, the color from the gold containers has migrated onto the white plastic slide mounts! The blue containers caused no such effect.

It almost looks like verdigris (sp?), the green oxidation that copper, brass and bronze can get. I would wonder if maybe you have exposed copper pipes that are sweating and the green is being dripped on the tracks, but since others say they have seen this problem as well that isn't going to fly (or if it is in a room with no open copper water pipes sweating .

I wonder if that is mold or mildew that has formed on the track. Mold and mildew can form and spread on plastics. Certain batches of the Fastback may be more porous and withhold moisture and then get moldy as a result.

Your track looks like a prop for the play WICKED! What is odd is the green is uniform. Usually, a color change is uneven!
