Looks like mine's got the extra valencing and the smoke deflectors but otherwise the same.

I've just remembered I've got to recreate one of the smoke deflectors out of plasticard, too - could be a challenge!

Make a mold from the one you've got. If you do it mirrored you should get the other side :)

No idea if this is of any interest but would this be the same amazing looking loco you guys have been discussing?

Hi Dave,

Yes, that looks like the same loco - mine is a Roco rather than a Fleischmann, but I think it's the same model.

You are trying to recreate one of these, a DRG 05

Normal service is starting to be resumed... got my spray booth and airbrush out of the box they've been languishing in and back on the desk!

I found the satin varnish first so I finished off this 27 respray I'd been working on:






And while that was drying I started building a project the plans of which I printed ages ago - a little church (based on Winstone church in Gloucestershire, where I lived when I was little) which will go on the test track:

Tidy paint job.  :thumbsup:

What material have you attached your printed church to? I looks quite thick for mount board, or is it possibly foam board? Looks a neat bit of work.

Thanks Dave!

I've just used 2mm card for the church, but the stone texture paper is already glued to (I think) 240gsm card before it goes on to this - so the effect is quite chunky and very sturdy!

FINALLY got time to spend on some locos...



A Warship gets some decals...





As does a stripped, dismantled and re-assembled County class...





I'm also working on a Jubilee to Patriot conversion and am modelling a slightly unusual livery (look away now, @paulprice, you won't like this...) - experimental BR apple green.





Oooh my, that's bright. First "rough" coat of black should help. This is better - isn't it...?  :-\
