Here's the Robinson L1, now finished - those Lima wheels do make such a difference! On ebay now, if anyone's interested!

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)


I've stripped the shortened 9F - all that brake fluid affected the glue and it fell to bits! Oh well, it needed a lot of love and filling anyway...

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)



Remember that "mystery" Piko loco a couple of pages back? I stripped it (which revealed the original hideous orange and white livery - shudder!) This is it primered - it needs some filling as its previous owner apparently attacked it with a bradawl - once I've done that I've found a slightly less horrible blue and white livery that it will end up in.

I thought that you'd said that all the 'proper' locomotives where LMS... Have you finally seen the light and looking to acquire some truly exceptional locomotives now Paul?  :laughabovepost:  :smiley-laughing:  :P

I meant it would look good on my layout as an example of how steam locomotives should not have been designed   :P

Maybe this should really be in the ebay advertising board?

Sorry, Alan... :-[

I'll put the ebay links in the correct section next time and just put progress updates and pics in this thread. I have administered myself a smacked wrist...  :(

No big thing - and not my place to say so much, but just wasn't sure if you were aware there was a dedicated board for ebay ads  :thumbsup:

I've got (another!) Lima class 31 that I'm stripping for a re-paint - I was thinking about the all-yellow Network Rail livery - unless anyone's got any interesting/unusual alternatives?

There are some interesting variations on blue:

as well as 31283 with large numbers (I intend to do this on a Farish 31, as I had a Lima model of 31283 as a kid!).

Of course, there's always some other interesting mods you could make:
