Surprised to be treated to this  CCT today! It doesn't take me long to crack out the paints and powders though...with some other parcel vans on their way this one will make a nice variation within the rake.

I managed to get this finished over the weekend. I struck lucky on eBay and snared this gorgeous Dapol Western. One of the finest N gauge models out there IMO; well see if the new 40 from Farish knocks it from top spot! Although I think the factory weathered versions are great, I wanted to do my own so weathering was consistent across the fleet. So a mix of paints and powders and a coat of flat matt and she's ready for service.

My latest tractor. Detail fitted both ends and nem pockets removed, lowered on its bogies to reduce the gap between the body and the bogies. Workstained weathering job on triple grey metal sector livery, just as I remember seeing them as kid rumbling through Hereford. Etched plaques and arrows on order from Fox, so not quite finished, but I couldn't resist sharing!

Brilliant work I'm envious

They are very workmanlike, I think it's a livery that really worked on the 37s. I've a Coal 37/0 next on the list. Thanks for the compliment, I'm chuffed  with this one!

My 2 latest models. 37514 in Metals and 37239 in Coal sector liveries. Lowered on bogies, detail fitted both ends, NEM pockets removed and weathered. Couple of etched bits on the way for 514, and oval buffers required for 239 but otherwise done!

Great work there Jonas.

Not being a diesel person myself, I've just spent a bit of time comparing your work with the standard Farish 37. You're work really brings the model to a whole different level and by lowering the bodies it is actually hard to believe that these are the same model!  8)

Well worth the effort and they look so realistic now.

I could've saved you the work  :D



Modified on the left, unmodified on the right. Thank you for your kind comments, I think it improves the 'weight' of the loco as it just sits more like the real thing. I'm pleased anyway!

Lovely comparison!

I didn't want to bother you! Besides, I learnt a little bit about something that I wouldn't have looked at otherwise!  :D

Managed to get this done between changing nappies! Farish N gauge 47/7 given the weathering treatment.
