I was surprised by the range of opinions on what Caley blue actually is!  there is evidence for all of the following having been used by CR - Prussian Blue, Royal Blue, Sky Blue & Oxford Blue... I am going to go with the latter, as it seems to match what I remember the actual loco (as preserved at Bo'Ness) a few years back when I was last there (2008).  Oxford Blue is a lot darker than the blue the CR Fairburn I have by Bachmann is outshopped in.

I have a book on the Caley and it says they took Prussian Blue and added white to it as it was an expensive paint and it made it go further. Always thought the lighter shades were stunning. I have scratchbuilt most of the Single 123 in 4mm because I thought it was beautiful. Sadly it is still in brass gold and solder silver! Whatever you do it will be a great model.

Back to things 1:1 scale

Ceiling work progressed now, just needed a discussion with the Woodtink on how the walls & ceiling will meet/merge - in the end we decided to bring the ceiling right to the edge & then bring the walls up to it with a bit of an angle.



With the ceiling done, it meant that the ends could be framed out (and the horrible job of cutting kingspan could continue)





Finishing the ceiling did show how little the van has lost its shape, I was not able to get parallel lines where the ceiling meets the walls, but it was only out by a 1/2 inch end to end on one side & 1" & 1/2 on the other (though probably most of that can be attributed to me not getting the 1st piece of cladding lined up better!  :doh:)

I love the natural wood interior.

Its going to look like a swedish sauna when all the cladding is on!  I have just about finalised the interior paint scheme, based on the LNER station schemes - I think I will leave the floorboards in their natural state, just so I can have the fun of trying to find that tiny screw after it has dropped into one of the seams :)

I absolutely understand  :D  If you can see your way to cracking on with some baseboards, that would be a handsome rent  :thumbsup:

Feel like I am rounding the corner into the home straight now on this build, I know in my heart of hearts though, this is going to be the easy bit!  My layout building skills are a bit rusty!



Love it when a plan comes together :)

You may remember the other Ozmandias inspired project  :help: - which was to turn out a BoB (or is it West Country, or maybe even Bullied Light Pacific) in Golden Arrow regalia...... 

Plan is to re-badge this one as 501 Squadron - I have everything now except a paint colour and letters/lining ... and the regimental badge - it must be me, but I struggle with the Fox Transfers listings!

......... anyway, here is the donor patient, Shaftesbury, awaiting permission to enter the PRPS Paintshop Preparation Area

I had the same notion as I was typing it... thought I should have called it the PRPS Pre-Paint Preparation Pod

:D
