Was this part of an ebay lot that included a couple of other Warships?

Hi Jim,

No, this was sold singly - it was an ebay purchase though! :)

Ah. There  was a "spares or repair" lot I was looking at a few days back that had two or three Warships (among other things) in a similar state to your one. I was just wondering if it was one of those.

Jim
Believe me. These things always have a logical explanation usually

Definitely number that up the same as the pic - it's a preservation livery so I think only this loco carried it.

Will look rather good I think  :thumbsup:

Cheers,
Alan

Compare and contrast...!

The E5 is so nearly nearly finished - taking its time, but getting there. Here it is next to another one I got as part of a job lot, about to go in the brake fluid bath...

A couple of progress on the crimson Jube and the Scot - getting there now! The decals need softening with Microsol, then a final coat of satin varnish (the tender has already been done).

I'm even painting and lining the tender frames - I really am a glutton for punishment!!

Really exquisite work there - deserves a lot of respect!

Out of interest which decal sheets did you use on the LMS locos? I have a Duchess to be converted to the late form of 46256 which will require some careful modification of the cab base and lining, so would be interested to know.

Cheers,
Alan

Thanks Alan!

I've got some (I think very old!) Pressfix-style decals which I use for the numbering and lettering - got these off ebay ages ago and they've done a lot of locos! They're a bit fiddly to use as the individual letters can shift when you're applying them, but they look great.

The lining is done with Fox transfers, using mainly the special Jubilee lining set that they do and some general lining.

The nameplate and smokebox number on the Jube are from the original Peco methfix set supplied with the loco when new.

I think SWMBO suspects I have a massive drink problem as the dining room reeks of meths and IPA... ;)
