The J94 was stripped of paint (and the plastic parts) and sprayed first in Halfords Grey Primer, I let it dry overnight and then sprayed it a couple of times in Tamiya AS-9 Dark Green (RAF). Although in the desert it is the complete wrong color. But hey, When I was in Afghanistan I could see a couple of green vehicles out there. So that's my excuse.

I got a couple more WD locomotives I painted that I will put up soon.

Rob.

CAn I ask if you painted the WD logos, or are they decals??

Oh, those are transfers from Cambridge Custom Transfers. Nice, easy to use waterslide transfers.

Hi everybody, here are a couple of other things I have done so far that I pulled out of the cupboard.

IMAG0482

Old style Farish class 08

IMAG0485
IMAG0485
Farish 8f

IMAG0486

Atlas 2-8-2. This is meant to be a Middle Eastern S200 class and I'd never even heard of them until I started researching WD locomotives. This engine is actually still around, It's somewhere at the bottom of the Atlantic....

IMAG0487
IMAG0487
S160 class 2-8-0. This is my Pièce de résistance. This started of in life as an Atlas 0-8-0, It had been dropped and had no front end, so I got it for a bargain price off ebay and I built an entire new front end for it.
I based it on the preserved engine 5197 and it wasn't until after I painted it that I found out that engines that worked on the LNER were painted in this light grey colour.

I guess all you need is a military siding on your model layout. For me that would be all the excuse I need to get myself a couple of military engines.

Oh here is my wagon I've been doing up thus far. The wagon is finished, I just got to tidy up the cargo a little. But the best thing is it's N gauge and I don't have to worry too much about the detail.,,,

Great work. are these scratch built or kits? Which bogies are you using ?

Gloucester bogies with small Parkside wheels looks like images 1578 and 1588 in this album

OT .. Albums are OK but I just don't get adding pictures to posts (what popup  ??? and popup blocker isn't on either).

Those sites are very useful. I've never heard of Gramodels I'm sure an order will be made soon.  :)

Those are a Daimler Dingo scout car. I got them from Pendraken Models. They are at a scale of 1:150 but with N gauge the difference is so minor you wouldn't notice. Unless you like counting rivets.

Anyway, here is the link:   http://www.pendraken.co.uk/BR79-p4213/

I've had a resin whitcomb body in my ToDO box for longer than I remember! Looks like an opportunity to blow the dust off it!

I've also got some Wehrmacht " Afrikakorps palm tree" decal sets, so there are possibilities!

GRamodels have a good range of British and Axis armour in 1/150

There is also this useful book:
