A bit more work done...

More decals on the InterCity 31 - orange lining and electricity warning symbols on. Needs a varnish and then the windows and cab fronts can go back in - then it's just a case of finding some buffers. Nearly there, Steve, nearly there... ;)




Here's a chap we haven't seen for a while (not since page 2 of this thread!!) - Sir Nigel, with his New Nose, Now Naked... needs a brush down with some cream cleaner and then he's ready for some primer...

I just swapped emails with the (very pleasant!) buyer of the newer "Harry Potter Hall", 5972 Olton Hall - it turns out he worked on the restoration of the original real loco!!

I hope my little replica does it justice... :-\  ;)

A bit more work on my various projects...

The London Underground class 20 nears completion - just needs a coat of varnish now:





A Jinty in new red BR livery getting some lining:





Nigel's New Nose is finished! Only... it's not Nigel any more. This is going to be Mallard in her E22 British Railways livery:




The nose repair from the inside - pretty pleased with the way it's come out, considering the massive damage that was there. Just got to make the insides work now - and given that some of the wheels are loose on the axles, this could be a challenge...!  :-:

The 47 and 56 have their final coat of yellow. Some overspray to correct, then it's varnish and decals...

:)  I've gone over the yellow overspray now - I will unmask them tonight and hopefully all will be crisp and straight.

Then I just have to re-mask for the red stripe on the 56, varnish, decal, detail paint, final varnish and they're done!

Call me sad, but few things in life engender as much joy as receiving a package of scrap/spares locos bought cheaply off ebay to discover that all the motors work!

Anyone any ideas as to what this, er, concoction on an Atlas chassis might be...? It looks perfectly salvageable, but I don't know what to restore it back to...! :confused1:





My first thought was someone had tried to create a Riddle Standard 6, or maybe a Britannia-ish?

You could well be right!! I have a feeling someone was trying to make a Britannia - but that tapered boiler's all wrong for that, isn't it?
