The D11 is back in one piece! Well, nearly.

Quite bit of filling, sanding and tweaking to do, but looking a lot better:



Question - No two questions. Where do you find these goodies and is this one gonna be for sale.  :)
Oh... and a 3rd question - what livery...  :drool:


Thanks Bob! :) Mostly I get my projects from eBay, but this particular one I bought from a forum friend who (rightly) thought it was my sort of thing!

This one will indeed be for sale (there are a couple on eBay I'm also bidding for.)

As for livery, I was thinking of LNER lined green, but I'm open to suggestions while she's pre-paint!

Excellent stuff Gideon, can see my Caledonian Tank loco will be in good hands!  (but I already knew that) the T9 looked fabulous - a credit to you. Your ability to do the lining just gets better and better every time I see it.

How long is the queue in the sidings into despair depot now?  :)

Looking forward to getting my T9 back on the layout. Pics will follow!

Getting longer, but that's good - and there's always room on the workbench for more...! :)

That's good news, Gideon as my Bulleid Light Pacific should be on your workbench and what will be one D6580 should be next month. 8-) Later, there may be a 4TC to run with D6580, too!

Finally got some loco time = it's been a busy few days! :)

I've started on the next T9 - again, this is for a forum friend (it's not mine, sadly!) - copper pipework done, gloss varnished and first lining decals on...:




More soon!

Looking good Gideon - I wonder who's this one is??  :) :beers:
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Oooo! déjà vu, all over again.

It's already looking very nice indeed. Remember the Maunsell Green below the running plate level ;)

Pesky work, boring legal paperwork and (delightful but time-consuming) Daddy duties have been impingeing terribly on my loco restoration time lately...  >:(  ;)

Still, I managed to grab an hour last night to do some more decals...
