:laughabovepost: I love that last one! If only my layout was of a more modern period I'd model that scene!

Would be an interesting diorama!

Cheers,

The "mystery" Czech loco looks a lot better for some filler and the first part of a new livery... needs tidying up, but it looks miles better than it was!

A couple of Limas get a facelift - another golden ochre class 31, and a 2-6-4 tank goes crimson lake (with a naked Sir Nigel, a 9F and a re-numbered Jube lurking in the background...)

Always tragic when locomotive mating rituals go wrong. I don't think we'll ever hear the pitter-patter of tiny 0-4-0s from that particular union.

Haha, indeed. Both locos were withdrawn and scrapped after this incident. Surprisingly the upper loco 31226 looks in reasonably undamaged state, but presumably underframe and bogie damage was beyond economical repair.

31202? Err...banana-fied is about the only suitable description!

Alan

It will be for sale once I've finished it, Paul - along with a couple of others I'm working on, which you'll see progress pics of shortly...

I'll let you know when they're up for sale! :)

An abject lesson in paying attention whilst using a Dremel...

I was drilling the rebate hole for the cab steps on the E5 whilst talking to SWMBO (well, it happens sometimes).

The drill bit grabbed, went straight though the footplate and up through the cab side. This is it after a LOT of swearing and some repair work with Milliput.

IT should be fine - it's just one panel so I can sand, re-primer, repaint and re-decal - just  :censored: annoying!!

Don't worry. It's still a lovely-looking E5.

Thanks, Pete! :) It'll be even lovelier when it's all done. I'm rather dreading the modification work on the chassis...  :uneasy:

I'm rather looking forward to it  :D  I have a spare chassis and an unstarted E5 kit here, waiting to be done. Seeing how you do it will help.
