They look great.

Is it just me, or do 'Trojan' and 'Thruster' sound like two of the Gladiators from the TV show, or a couple of dodgy porn stars?

The 21 is mine and boy it looks fantastic, feel a bit guilty about the glazing....as for Minitrix warships you can NEVER have enough, although I may stop when I have the fleet.
Mind I have a suspicion that Gideon is aware of my warship affliction..... :claphappy: :claphappy:

Surely you'll need three of each - one in green, one in maroon and one in blue...? ;) :smiley-laughing:

But of course! Then there are the no warning panel, small warning panel and large warning panel variants ... I have a list from the Internet.

The Paint Department has been busy...


Having found the correct shade of Anglia blue, this 47 has had a base coat and the first of the cabside stripes:







A pannier and a dock tank get a coat of fictitious (but rather lovely) metropolitan red...:




Work on the next City of Truro - in the background is another completed 27, which just needs a new motor:




A little Drummond gets a coat of proper Drummond green in preparation for lining:




Somewhere under all that masking tape is a Warship with newly-yellowed noses (Andy, this is Zest!!):




More soon! :)

Very good to see my "City of Truro" being beautifully repainted and detailed to its early 1960s BR WR condition. It will miss the Christmas and New Year specials but will be announced for the Easter ones. 8-)

Inspiring work as always  :thumbsup:

Sadly my airbrush lives in the garage and it's too cold at this time of year to be painting
A keen modern image modeller in N Gauge, the latest creation I am working on is Cottingfield - an N Gauge Rule 1 Layout
