Peter: I think it's lovely. The BR blue was indeed a short- lived livery, but it has always looked smart in my humble opinion. I personally love the old Brunswick Green livery... the only colour for a diesel! But I stir people on here all the time about that.

Paddy is quite correct that the new model will have us thinking, but hey, from the usual viewing distance, ???? If it runs well it's Ok with me!! Especially when you are building a layout! Get it runnin' then worry about the locos!

Cheers, George

What have I done? ...

My first Shapeways order - a pillbox (well, it seemed like a good idea - can be decaying beside the line, as per 2010 or so) and a Harsco rail grinder.  I have a couple of suitable Tomix tram chassis for the rail grinder, and the pillbox doesn't need one!





Cheers,
Phil

You could add details (like handrails, etc) and sort out that malnorished front bogie wheelset/truck.

Thankyou "H"?

I would really like to improve anything that makes it look better, run better etc. but I am not super detail person!

Would you perhaps enlarge upon your suggestion as to how and where I source such items ready made, my eyesight and my shaking hands  are such that I couldn't imagine making them myself?

Regards, Peter.

You'll need to do the research yourself - I don't really have time to do it for you, but handrail wire is commonly available, handrails knobs available from the NGS and 2mmSA, paints from Railmatch and Phoenix, decals from Fox, and check out specialist suppliers like N Brass Loco, BHE and TPM for other bits. Also visit shows and talk to the traders and demonstrators.

 There's only one colour for BR diesels - GREEN.



Yeah, greens alright. Here's a couple of green diesels and electrics that you'll enjoy then;

And if all else fails, you could actually keep pills in it... :laugh:

Hi there H!

With the exception of D7612 (which is the green I'm thinking of), they are way out of my modelling period, but impressive beasties nevertheless. Thanks for posting them!  :thumbsup:

At long last my Dapol 38xx has arrived from Osborn's Models.



This is their limited edition (No. 14 of 150) which is detailed and re-numbered to 3850

That's going to look good with a rake of 100 coal wagons behind it  ;)

Unlike its foreign cousins that come with cow catchers, this seems to be fitted with a cow scarer!

Nice model tempting....
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

Yes that 'orrible Rapido has to come off and I've got 3 bags of detailing goodies that have to be added yet.

Go on. You know you want to.  >:D

A Dapol 9F Evening Star.   

Last year Dapol were unable to repair my Dapol 9F Evening Star and gave me a refund.  On Saturday I spotted a new one in the Bournemouth Model Railway Centre shop and got it for 99 (more than I paid for the original but good value for me).  If anyone is interested there is at least one other for sale.

Ian  :bounce:

Saturday: new 9F  :claphappy:
Tuesday: ran in for 45 minutes on slow speed and it locked solid.   :(
Wednesday: posted back to BMRC
