Got some more decals done - that lime green Jube is now a sober and proper black, on its way to becoming 5552 "Silver Jubilee", the grey (formerly green and gold!) German tank gets some "fresh out of the factory" black lining and the Southern E5 is under way...

Hi Bob, yes it really is that colour on the real loco, or very close to! I've used humbrol 103 cream, I think.

You can see the real thing here: http://tomcurtisrailgallery.weebly.com/uploads/6/9/0/3/6903499/d832crowcombe0900mn110611.jpg

Happy New Year, all! :)

I've kept busy over the holidays. Remember that hideous lime green Peco Jube a few pages back? Look at her now as 5552 Silver Jubilee...

Excellent work as usual Ozzy :thumbsup:

I look at everything you post so do keep the updates comming.

Ref the full yellow ends on the 'ships above, are people offended by the "custard dipped" livery on these as much as some are by the Blue Pullman for example?

I personally like the extra colour, but on older locos which pre-date the yellow warning regs, some don't.

I ask this as I saw a custard BP for sale this weekend at a show, still north of 200.00. Believe other retailers ate struggling to clear the last ones.

Thanks Skyline! :)

No-one's told me they don't like the added custard - maybe people are too polite...! ;)

I tend to go either full yellow or not at all with Warships, because the half yellow panels are all curves and corners and are a pain to get right (so pure laziness on my part!). I like both looks, but like you I think the extra colour adds something to the loco. I usually do locos that are not normally modelled (there are so many blue Hermeses and green Intrepids out there!), so hopefully that will make them a bit more popular! :)

I have to agree with Paul. Looking at the finish on those bodies, you could easily think that they had just come from the factory  :). David.

Hi Oz,

Loving your work!

Being a Warship fan and having a few of my own detailing projects on going, can you please tell me what you do for the body side stripe (transfer, paint, colour) and also what you do to make the numbered head codes?

Cheers,

Rich.
