To calm the tortured nerves of Jube lovers everywhere... the lime green Jube now looks like this:

A few days in a brake fluid bath works miracles. Needs to be primered and then sprayed - I'm thinking black for this one.

Feels like an age since I've done any work on my locos!

My beloved Mini, Charlotte (proper Mini, none of this modern BMW nonsense), has been and continues to be very poorly, so I have spent most of my time and money over the last few days trying to find out what's wrong and  get her better. I think I may have finally cracked it, though.

So, locos...

A restored and repainted Warship (now D802 "Formidable") and a similar Farish 94XX have rolled through to completion from the paint room...

Both are on ebay - now I have Mini repairs to pay for as well my N Gauge habit... ;)

Thanks Nobby! I was very pleased to finish the Warship - all those numeral decals were put on individually and it does nothing for the eyesight...  :confused1: ;)

A BIG thanks to Ozy for spraying the below two beauties for me.

Oz, your work is very good and I am thrilled to bits with the finish on both the Railfreight 56 and the Dutch 47 - both will take pride of place in my collection and look especially handsome with the scenic background. Your lining is spot on and I can only look in awe and admire your work.

For anyone considering having something done by this good fellow, I say go ahead. You won't be disappointed, and if you are, then you're just a too picky so and so!  ;)

Dan

Sorry - I'll work on trying to get the first two the correct way up later. I'm not having much success at the moment :doh:
