A couple new wagons today for the Messerschmitt Train.
They're are carrying two Me-163 Komet rocket powered planes being deployed to take on the night of the American 8th Airforce.

The Komets still need markings adding and then a final weathering on the wagons.

I've one more aircraft to add to the train, and if I can find the right model, this one will be something a bit different.

More update on the rolling stock with two items done this week.

The first are the 5 M10 Panther wagons for the Operation Greif Train. I've a slight problem with 3 of the as I need to find some new couplings. 






The second one are the BR44's which are now weathered and looking suitably grimy. One of these will go on the front of the Operation Greif Train, while the other one will be heading up the Messerschmitt Train.
I'm pretty pleased with how these two have turned out.

Disgusting! Filthy! Yes - you should be very pleased with them, Al. Fine work, indeed.

Next batch of locos to get running. A Minitrix BR24 and BR64 and a Fleischmann BR53.
The BR24 has broken valve gear on one side, so I might have to do something different with this one.

You could go extreme, wreck it a bit, and park it in a siding having been strafed/bombed :hmmm:
