Has anyone used A Beugler Paint Lining Tool

Post  chas12154 on Mon 09 Mar 2015, 10:21 am

Hi, Charlie here once more after advice Very Happy Has anyone used a Beugler Lining Tool to line their 2" Burrell?
I've been doing some research in to lining, as my free hand lining isnt the best:cry: I have read that it maybe fiddly to use on a 2".
I haven't started my build yet but thought a bit of forward planning would be a good idea!

Can anyone Help?

I looked at one and tried one at a show,but decided to go for Finesse Lining tape instead.
If you look at my thread on the owners pics page I have used it on the wheels,the paint does bleed a little but the lines are crisp.If you are interested will send you the Part Code for the one I used.

Hi Steve, thanks for your reply. Yesa would like the part code of the one you used. The tender corners are my main worry, straight lines you can use lining tape for.
I guess with practice it will get easier Very Happy

Will pop the code on here later,when I get home.
The corners I have tried on a bit of scrap metal and with a bit of perseverance and a steady hand I managed to get a reasonable effort.Very Happy

The Green is Craftmaster "LNER Doncaster Green" and the Brown is "Middle Brown",both paints are from there Model paint range.
The wheels were hand painted, Primer,Undercoat and 2 coats Top coat,and when I have "Tarted" the lines up I am going to add a couple of coats of varnish.
The rest of the it I am hoping to Use an airbrush on,once I have had a play as I have not used one since I was a kid,tried hand painting the hornplates but was not happy with the finish.

Im going to hand paint all of mine. Like the full size ones.
Ive more or less decided to use Burrell colours, Canopy Green, for engine and Chocolate Brown for wheels. Not sure what colour for lining yet. Thinking of Cream or yellow.
What colour undercoat did you use under the green?

Used grey through out,paint covers well.
Was advised by Craftmaster to use the Model Range as Coach Range does not come in small quantities, and did not want to be left with loads spare Very Happy

Thats a good point, hadnt thought of that!
Might have to rethink my colour choice. How much paint do they recommend is needed?

I purchased 250ml Tins and think that I will have enough to complete, but if not would rather just buy another small tin to complete and to use for touch ups rather than have a load left over to go hard. Very Happy

The Finesse tape that I used on the spokes was F-21 which is 2 stripes and I also purchased F-26 which is a 3 stripe tape.
Craftmaster paints sell them or you can get them on Fleabay they come in lenghts of 42 Feet, so you should have loads to practice with like I did and enough for the Engine.
Hope this helps, if you want to see some drop me a PM and I can stick a bit in the post.

I did purchase a beugler and played around with it especially on the wheels but found that due to the size of the beugler wheel and relatively small size of the model, the beugler was no use on the wheels as it fouled the outer edge of the rim when you needed to put the curve on the spoke in.
Ended up using finesse tape all round

Hi Alan, thanks for your reply, I have come to the conclusion that finesse tape is the way to go. Did you do the curves with the tape to?
Im thinking of doing two lines on my wheels and one around the tender and one either side of the brass on the boiler.
Dont want it looking too fancy as its a working engine.

Been on holiday hence late reply
Yes I did use the tape, if you are carefull it will 'bend' as it is plastic so you can stretch it into a curve if carefull

Lining tape for me was the way forwards.. PLENTY of patience is required and, when applying the paint, DO NOT load the brush up, it WILL seep under the lining tape, use a little at a time and gradually build it up..

Hi Lilyjack, I have decided to use lining tape too. I think it will be easier due to the size of the Beugler tool.
Im going to go to the Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition in October. To take a look at the various types of lining tapes there are and to get the right size of tape. Will be good to see other models and the trade stall there too.
Thanks for your reply.
