This one's getting close now, lining all but done, just the final finishing to complete.





The footplate lining was a particular challenge as the broad curves under the cab and above the slide bars had to be formed from straight decals, and the front end of course has the fiddly little bit of lining. Copious amounts of decal softening solution was the only way to get these done successfully.

Cheers,
Alan

This one's all but complete now after final varnishing.

Has fought me a bit at times which is why the L1 bought at the same time was completed first. Overall happy with the result, a few minor bits may come in for attention in future.







Now, what challenge will Atso-cad offer me next.....  :)

Cheers,
Alan

A couple of additionals now I've trimmed back the front cylinder draincocks, painted the safety valves and some cab detail.





Cheers,
Alan

Absolutely wonderful levels of detail, plus a great paint job and lining. I don't even do LNER but I'd be pleased to have it running on my layout.

Go on Peter, you know it makes sense!  ;)

Alan, stop posting! Everytime I think that the K3 can't possibly get any better you go and add another level to it!  8)

As to what challenges I can offer next, you'll have to wait an see. I still need to be able to access the SECR 'H' class files before I get lynched on here! (Problem with using a different version of the software while on holiday - lesson learnt!).

Nooooo! It makes absolutely no sense when I'm running an SR/S&DJR layout that provides 'a taste' of Bournemouth West and Evercreech Junction  :D

When you produce that H class you'll really have me drooling... or how about producing a production watercart tender... or an S&D 'Scottie'... or, or... Hmm... I'll shut up now.

Pretty much done now, though I'd like to add cab window glazing and perhaps cab doors.

Cheers,
Alan

I'm amazed you've not added the teak framing to the windows  ;) - something I'm thinking about adding to future models.

Very nice finish - had me looking at some of my locos to see whether there was scope for picking out backhead detail!

And finally, to round off, here is a little corner of the world that's purely Atso based.



Now..... for something completely different.

Alan
