All the handles are done and I'm starting on the ends.  There are a few paint chips and a few bleeds of yellow but these are easily touched up when I start the detail painting.

Once I have added all the end detail I will add the buffer beams.  I have held off doing these until I was sure of coupling clearances (or whether not to fit couplings).

The 2Bills ran in multiples of pairs so some ends will need couplings, however the Tadpoles did not so will have full buffer beams.

Seriously impressive modeling. I'm really enjoying (and learning a lot from) seeing these EMUs coming to 'life'  :headbang:

The bodies are now complete awaiting glazing.  The transfers were printed and added and a top cote of satin varnish.  I may dull the roofs later, however I will await the curing of the paint to see how it looks first and the alternative will be a bit of weathering.
