I'm just joking, mate.

I'll pay postage, but I'm thinking if anyone in the UK would be interested in it, I'm starting to think I'd love to see it running on a layout over there!

A whole evening to myself to do locos - bliss! :)


Many projects on the go, but to hand and in front of the camera last night...


Another T9 progresses. Those cabside curves are a  :censored: to get right, but they don't half look good when they work! I haven't done the "blacking in" yet, so that double white line will be a single...:






45565 Jube "Victoria" in bright BR green (sorry, @paulprice !) Another tricky one to line, the tender is a nightmare (and isn't finished yet!)






The LBSC E2 is just about done - just got to paint the vacuum pipes and coupling hooks and give her a coat of varnish:






Another Mallard in experimental blue - but I'll be selling this one!






And another Jinty in preservation red, ditto!






Last but not least (even though they're diseasels! ;) ), a trio of 27s get a touch up:




So many more on the workbench that don't feature here - but I do like to keep busy! :)

Wow - you have been busy. Love the E2 still, I'll be watching out for this on eBay. As always - love the T9, can't wait for mine.

Brilliant work as ever.

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Blimey - over 100,000 views of my thread! I am honoured and touched, everyone - thank you for your kind comments, amazing knowledge and encouragement. :)

 :thankyousign: :NGaugersRule:

I managed to get some loco time over the weekend, so here's some more from the Despair Depot...


I re-did the cabside lining on this T9 as I wasn't happy with the curves - looks much better now! Just some touching up, blacking-in and a final coat of satin and she'll be on her way back to her (very patient!) owner...:







Another "preservation" Jinty nears completion...:






Pleased with this one - the LBSC E2 is complete! A quick test run tonight and then she'll be on eBay!:





There are many, many more on the workbench, so I'll post pictures soon! :)

Some slightly nicer in situ pics of the LBSCR E2...














"Victoria" the Jube is getting there - I need to tone down that white footplate lining, though! I'm going to try grey felt tip over the top...

As ever I have to say it truly brilliant work, the Jube is even growing on me, but I wont admit that in public

Lovely work on the E2. Regarding the Jubilee's footplate lining, I'd suggest mixing a tiny amount of black into some varnish and carefully applying that over the lining to tone it down a little.

Another T9 fresh from the lining works...! Very pleased with this one - she's now all wrapped up ready to go back to her owner:











The maroon Jinty is also finished:






And work starts in earnest on the next T9 - splasher tops and pipework painted, now on to the lining:
