GWR 813 and Peco kit
« on: November 08, 2017, 02:10:48 pm »
Hello all.
I would like to build a fantasy GWR 0-6-0ST locomotive, inspired from the GWR 813.
So I have two questions.

First, where can I find the Peco/Wills NL-6 Peckett saddle tank white metal kit ?
If you have one and don't use it, do not hesitate to contact me.


Second, could you please give me paint references for the GWR green color ?
I would prefer some paint in spray, as available at Tamiya's.

Thanks by advance for your help.

I would imagine you would only get one either through the good chaps on here, or a certain auction site, but they are becoming rarer these days. They are also not cheap when up for auction and finding a chassis is also getting harder. Good luck. I struggled to get one at the right price a few months back.

There is a chap who has done a 3D printed 813 on RMWEB. Not sure if he has released it for sale on shapeways or not.

It may not be quite right but I think it fits on to a terrier chassis.

I still see them around.  Mind you, there seems to be a surfeit of the unmotorised "gold plated" Bn2 locos on ebay.de at the moment, they're no use!

Thank you for your messages.
I have to precise the kit shall not be mounted and I do not plan to use the continental chassis.

Besides that, could you please tell me what paint should be used for GWR green? (if possible in spray)

These are supposed to be very close colours from the standard rattle can paint range from Halfords.

GWR/BR loco green Rover Brooklands green
GWR/BR loco green Ford laurel green

Not sure myself as I don't model the GWR

Also look here, the paint colour chart is at the bottom of the page, along with lots of other useful information.

Do you think that one of those green paints would be ok as GWR green ?

Not sure if you would be interested in bidding on this one?

Just to add, it's nothing to do with me, I'm only an innocent bystander.

Thank you!
Unfortunately I need one that is unmounted.
I keep crossing my fingers.
