Its great to see Jubilees painted in proper LMS liveries rather than horrible BR ones, well done that man  ::)
:no:
BR Apple green and white lining. That's the way to do it...    :)

Many thanks, Gideon, for adding the white cab roofs to my ex-GWR diesel railcar in BR Crimson & Cream livery. It is scheduled to be renumbered W24W. It was withdrawn from Worcester shed in this livery but will be overhauled at Worcester Works before being preserved by Cornish Loco. Preservation Group, Penmayne, and will be seen at Cant Cove.

It's a pleasure, Chris - sorry it's taken so long! Hopefully you got my email re the others?

Many thanks, Gideon. Yes, I did and will reply this afternoon. I hope that the ex-GWR "Mogul" is not too far down the queue?

Many thanks, Gideon, that's excellent news. I know that Tony who did a great job building the Mogul is also keen to see the finished result. At present, though, I have not found a source for the numberplates for 7316. 8-(

This rather ghostly-looking lady is the Mogul mentioned earlier...





A quick trip to the paint shop later, with a 27 for company...








Black paint and lining to follow...

Many thanks, Gideon, for the photos. My first ever working N Gauge loco. was a BR Blue Class 27 so my 'Mogul' is keeping good company! 8-)

I'm looking forward to seeing the lining and black painted areas.

Bank Holidays don't apply to the Despair Depot workbench... :)



The black Jube is finished and looking (if I do say so myself) rather splendid...















The Mogul, a kit-built Q1 and a 27 get some varnish. Also lurking are a brace of HSTs, of which more in a moment...






No prizes for guessing who this little chap is (pshh-de-cuff, pshh-de-cuff...!) ;)






The D11 progresses, a 4-4-0 awaits a service and a Duchess is in the queue for lining to become "City of Manchester":





Those HSTs, unmasked - I'm going for the GWR livery. They haven't come out quite as well as I'd hoped - the lines aren't straight enough and not quite in the right place - but a re-mask and respray and I think I can improve on it:





Many, many more are on the go - pics soon! :)

Many thanks for these updates. I agree the "Jubilee" looks superb. Very good to see my "Mogul" in the background with the painting well under way.

I think you do yourself an injustice Ozymandias, splendid doesn't begin to cover how good that Jubilee looks!  8) 8) 8)

I like a certain 0-4-0 of TV fame as well. Where did that one come from?

*blushes* Thank you! :)

Ivor belongs to a forum friend who had him 3D printed - he's proper tiny! Something tells me I'm going to have to get rather creative when it comes to lining him...!

Is that D11 a commission or is it heading for eBay Gideon?

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

Hi Bob, the D11 is one of mine, so once finished she'll be eBay-bound! :)
