I'll be doing some more shortly - in addition to the ones of yours I've got! ;)

I'm pleased with the way "Champion" came out (I'd never done one in BR blue before), so I will be doing more...

I need to find a way of masking off the nose to do small yellow ends - they look much nicer than full yellow ends, but full yellow is much easier to do!!

Restored Minitrix Warship, now 809 "Champion" in BR blue...



I'm intrigued:  newer design chassis with fixed buffer beam yet fully visible wheels like the old chassis?  Have you cut away some of the bogie sides so less like a V200?  Looks good.

I also never knew that Minitrix had produced a "Warship" model with a newer design chassis with fixed buffer beam yet fully visible wheels like the old chassis. My BR Blue one was one of the very first models with the original chassis.

I would definitely go for one in BR Blue but with a small yellow warning panel like D830 and D831 carried. D831 "Monarch" would be my choice. But, not, yet.

I think the previous owner must have chopped off the extraneous bits! I think it looks better for it! :)

I think I spotted some of your handiwork on e-bay? Do you sell privately or just tend to use e-bay?

Normally I sell the ones I've restored on eBay, but if you're looking for something particular I'm always open to commissions! :)

I can thoroughly recommend @Ozymandias  for commission jobs.
