Finished! Pleased with it actually. Think Iíll sell this one and do another one to keep!

A couple of silly imperfections, I used a new bottle of Klear to do the gloss, but itís thinner than it used to be, and not that glossy! Some of the transfer film shows up in bright light annoyingly.

Quick phone photo, apologies!

Donít know why (out of Era and region) but I am drawn to these sets. If you did sell it I would be potentially interested.

@njee20 Well done looks great! Keep us all updated on your next one too!

Progress at my end slowed again over the bank holiday - only one more coat of blue on the coaches - i actually 'played' some trains!  ;D

Did you ever make any more progress JPTrain?

Just finished a full 2+14 set, which looks pretty impressive, if I do say so myself!

Must get some 1.5mm masking tape, the 2mm is very slightly too thick. Colours are better than Dapol's effort at least, their red is far too dark!

I enjoy doing them, but theyíre out of period (and geography) really, so I sell them  :-[! I will try and get a video though, theyíre a lovely model, and I do keep thinking I should hang onto one!

Impressive work, may I ask how often you sell these?

I've done 3, the first one was the one at the top here, in April, so about every 3 months :)

I've got another 14-car set which I'm tempted to do, even if I keep it. Running one full stop is decidedly "rule 1", and I think they look better in GNER livery anyway!

Hi njee20, I'm afraid to say I haven't building on the big railway has kept me away from the workbench however with a good christmas break upcoming (I know do I even work on the railway?) I'm hoping to kick start and get this one complete - i've just got varnishing and transfers to go now for the most part!

Yours looks fantastic and is very much making me want to complete mine!
Thanks

There was definitely a reason that photo's on Flickr, I forget now what it is, I must have wanted to post it on a forum at some point! Makes a change from all the bike and train photos at least!
