EMT 158 hopefully on its way to becoming GWR 159. Also hope this photo attaches as I seem to be having trouble in that department.

Coach A completed bar the roof, which I need to paint black. Made a bit of a mess of the front end tbh. But I'm learning - hopefully won't make the same mistake again!  :D

Looks pretty neat to me. :thumbsup:

Two cars 90% done. Middle car is going to present more of a problem stripping it seems. Older British RR build so using IPA on the paintwork. Seems pretty stubborn - some bits really won't come off no matter what I try. Also just realised I'm going to have to find a way to darken the windows. Hmmm. ???
