Have you ever wanted to learn to paint your own model steam locomotives? Now you can, and it's easy to learn how! This new video presentation, "How to Paint a Steam Locomotive", shows you, step by step using easy to understand methods, exactly how to paint and finish a steam locomotive.

And we don't just show you once! The TWO DVD set starts with a chapter on tools and techniques to get you headed in the right direction. Next you get three detailed chapters covering three separate painting projects: One, a basic-level Bachmann 2-8-0; Two, how to paint a brass Shay, a two-truck PFM 70-tonner detailed and finished as Sugar Pine Lumber Company #10; and Three, a brass Mikado, a Westside Models of the Minarets & Western Railway #104, an MK-10 class.

Every step is covered , disassembly, cleaning, masking, paint blends and mixing, airbrush use, prep for paint, painting, touch up, decals, final clear finish, the whole works. Nothing is left to chance. This project uses Badger Mod
