Not the smoothest runner on my test track (yet!) but certainly one of the prettiest... bar a little touching up of paint on the wheels and getting her running nicely, the E5 is done!

Some of your best work Ozzy, even as a Diesel fan I think that E5 is lovely  :thumbsup:

You just keep getting better and better at this.  Anyone would think that you've been practising!  That's a beautiful little loco.
Apologies if it's been asked before in the thread but would you mind doing a step-by-step series of photos of how you do the lining?

Thanks Rabs! :)

Yes, of course, I'd be happy to do some step-by-step pics - next time I do a "tricky" one I'll get some shots! :)

Just wait until you see the (LMS) crimson Jube I've so nearly finished... ;)

What about a nice Prussian blue

Ta-dah! :) Not finished yet, obviously, and needs some touching up, but I love the colour - thanks for the suggestion, Paul!

Not a problem, being an avid follower of your updates, I may give up repainting locomotives for myself and just send them all to you... ;D which means I will have more time to track down new additions or even finish off some of my part built loco's  :angel:

Back from a works trip overseas and itching to get on with some of my N projects!

Before I do so, though, I have a birthday present to complete for my youngest's best friend - he's having my old test track, which after a little scenification and the addition of some spare buildings and trees is looking unrecognisable (but better, hopefully). Not finished yet, but here's the work so far:

On the loco front, the paint job on the crimson Jube is now complete (just for you, paulprice!!) - she needs some servicing on the motor to get her running a bit more quietly, but I'm really pleased otherwise!:

Fantastic work as usual  :thumbsup:

That 'Jube is almost enough to make me want one....

Almost....

Do one in Tripple Grey and let's see what happens (apart from Paul exploding  :D).

 :laughabovepost: :smiley-laughing: :laughabovepost: :smiley-laughing:

No use appealing to @Sprintex or @Tank, all you will get there is a vote for a "Swallow" and "NSE" livery 'Jubes respectively  :D

But steering back to the good work of Ozzy, I have to say the birthday present you are working on is really special. I know I would have...in fact would still....be bowled over if somebody made a layout like that for me  :laugh3:

Please do post "finished" (I know no layout can ever be really "finished") photos of the layout, perhaps with some more Ozzy creations suitably posed?
