Title: Repainted and modified 85' full-dome
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on February 10, 2017, 01:44:52 PM
I acquired a Bachmann 85' full-dome as a birthday present. It was originally ATSF, but I repainted it into the Red Oxide with black roof livery of my fantasy railroad. I also modified the interior to be a bit better:

The lower insert has been modified. I painted the floor red and the upholstery turquoise, added divider windows to the lounge, and I expanded the floor on either side to add the nurse's room and the bar (the liquor cabinet is a Paul Friedlund picture).

I cut notches in the floor of the upper interior insert to make room for installing homemade staircases, painted the floor and upholstery, fashioned walls for the lower-level equipment rooms and covered the floor gaps above said rooms, built a dumbwaiter and the upper-level service counter

And here's the car all together

Very nice craftsmanship... Just out of thought why the nurse's station

Because that's what was behind that separate lower-level window on the ATSF domes the model is based on: an office for a courier-nurse
