Two lovely models, Tony, well worth all your valuable time spent on them. I look forward to seeing 30956 arrive at Cant Cove, in due course, and your "County" running on your layout.

Many thanks, Tony. A beautiful model. It is just awaiting, I believe, it's 3D-printed 72A shedplate to complete it. It's well worth the wait to see it at Cant Cove, working the Castle Branch and steam-heating the coaching stock of special trains.

I'm sure you'll restore the very interesting LMS tank loco. to perfect condition.

So more photos of the Drummond HR Class X 0-6-4T
I had hoped to be able to remove the numbering, make a roof and just generally touch it up, but this proved to be impossible and I had to go the whole hog with a repaint, but not to difficult in the end.



a couple of photos of the stripped down loco




And the finished item, took about a week

Many thanks, Tony. I hope the missing smokebox shedplate will arrive soon to add the finishing touch to this lovely model. You should enter it in a NGS competition for kit-built locos.

Hi, more updates, been busy today!

Chassis as bought, needs painting :o




Painted chassis, much better



Stripped body shell



Unfortunately after stripping off the paint I realised I don't like the chimney very much, so am waiting to hear from Nick of N brass and will be replacing the chimney, safety dome and buffers with N Brass items, will be a bit of a delay but worth it.

Regards Tony

I agree 100%, Tony. Well worth waiting for the N Brass items. They make such a difference. 8-)

So, N brass items arrived, but there was too much going on also:





Going to add front steps and hand rails then a coat of primer.

I started this also, which is a worsley works scratch aid 4  x 4wheel coaches (GWR), i plan to mount them on chassis made from PECO brake van chassis's.





Out of focus one showing chassis and body



I then realised I had no curly door handles so had to order them also, which I now have and will continue building this weekend.

Finally got around to making up some station sign boards and fitting them.







that's all for now, will post some more photos later when i have got something more to show.
