Here is a couple of pics of My Union Mills 3f re united with the tender. I might give the model another coat of matt varnish to seal the weathering.I have used various paints,enamel and acrylics. The loco is based o  how she would have looked in the 60's before she was withdrawn.

Just a suggestion, Chris, but how about toning down the connecting rods (I've used a black permanent marker pen for this before). I'm still going to mug you for it >:D ;)

Thanks Mick, I have actually toned them down with some oily paint perhaps it needs a touch more.
