Oh lawd, can't hold me tongue no more! That's an ugly green on a beautiful loco.

 :sick:

Now don't you go getting ideas, there's a good chap.

 :telloff:

Can't fault the workmanship though.

 :admiration:

Keep up the good work.

A bit more done tonight.

The next T9 gets some lining:






Mallard in E22 experimental livery gets a chassis (if I hadn't knocked the tender in the :censored: dust while I was spraying on the satin varnish it'd be complete... :veryangry:




More soon! :)

Yellow lining on the T9 looks the business. Great work again.

Excellent work, as always, Gideon. Later this year, when I send you two T9s, the first to be in BR Black Late Crest livery as 30313, I'd like the second in the same livery as 301 but as 338.

@Chris in Prague , 338 never had a 6 wheel tender, have you got an 8 wheeler for it? If not pick one from the list on this page -

Or else invoke Rule 1
Cheers MIKE

Thanks, Mike. My planned 338 will be preserved but with a 6-wheel tender whilst my planned 30313 in BR Black Late Crest should be correct in all details including its 6-wheel tender. 8-)

Dorchester shed's 'Royal' T9, in Malachite livery, which survived long enough to become 30119 with BRITISH RAILWAYS on its 8-wheeled tender, would make a very nice model. (It was withdrawn in December 1952; alas, much too early for preservation.)

Ozymandias, will you please slow down, man!!

I haven't logged in for 2 or 3 days and there's 3 pages I've got to look through! I'm retired now, I haven't got time for all this, dammit...  :D

Seriously, I continue to be amazed at your workrate and the quality of the stuff you turn out.
 :wonderfulmodelling: Keep it up.

All the best,

Chris

A Sunday to myself meant an absolute ton of loco work done - but I only managed to get a couple of pics! I'll try and get some more tonight...



Re-assembled M7 and D11 await primer. Quite pleased with the hand rail on the D11!:






D11 goes green!





Ah, Fathers' Day... the joy of having an 8-year-old son who knows his dad too well:  :D

Well done that lad!  :thumbsup:

A proper beer for his dad!  :pint:

I do note that there is room for perhaps another 5 bottles.  :)

D11 goes green!





What is the source of the D11 out of interest.  I have a GEM kit I picked up off EBay, complete, painted and lined in BR black, and a non runner.  30 mins work, mainly rebalancing the body on the chassis,  sorted that.  I recently sold a BHE Claude which I had turned into a chunky but recognisable D11.  Then Colin Heard produced one, though not in stock at present.

This is a white metal kit that I bought from a forum friend - presumably the GEM one? It's been stripped, dismantled, re-assembled and had new hand rails and some other detailing. I think it's going to look lovely when painted and lined.
