Some progress to a few of the many...!



A T9, an M7, the D11 and a Princess in varying stages of re-paint/lining:






A Grafar Jube which I'm doing for a forum friend goes from green to black - this is going to be re-lined in wartime yellow/purple livery.






A turbomotive Princess gets a primer. I've always wanted this loco, so this is one of the few I'm going to keep!





Bob's T9 is really coming along now. The fiendish cabside curves are done...: :)

Great work as ever.  :)
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

The paint shop's been busy (as has the lining workshop!)



The D11, a couple of Princesses and the M7 get some colour:





The start of the Jube's wartime purple/straw livery (having looked at some reference pics I know that curved lining under the cabside shoudn't be there - it's coming off!!):

Managed to get in some N Gauge time in over the weekend. :)



The wartime lining on the Jube is going well. I'm using the Fox transfers decal kit for this - excellent transfers, but a pig to get the tender and cabside lining even and straight!





The Turbomotive, a Duchess, the M7 and a class 27 progress...




Finally, I took a break from locos to finish a very old project - the scratch-built church from the village I lived in when I was little (Winstone, Glos). This is going to take pride of place on the test track:





Illuminated stain glass windows - bit proud of these! :)

Gideon

The Jube looks great, I must admit its not the easiest of liveries to apply, its deceptively simple (I even did some free hand).

Im jealous of the Turbomotive, I need one but never get round to ordering the kit.

Yes - looks very realistic and a nice looking scratch built building  :thumbsup:

Progress, progress...



The wartime Jube gets some cabside letters and numbers:







The beginning of the M7's Caledonian lining:






And the D11 gets some boiler bands and some gold lining:






Quick question for the cognoscenti... a while ago I was given this A3, which has been fitted with an LMS (I think)-style tender from a Lima 0-6-0 loco and has an elongated front pony truck. Is this prototypical? Is there a particular sort of A3 that had this configuration?:





There is plenty more on the workbench at the moment but not all of it got in front of the camera - so more soon! :)
