Yellow Peril for Summat?
Ahead of Summat's date with the public in March I've started fettling the RMweb Austerity.
First off couplings. Off to with the front pocket and the hook removed from the rear tension lock. Home made 3 links held in place on the DJM hooks with a spot of Cyano. Done
Real coal added to the bunker and it looks like the crew have been careless with cleaning out the smokebox....
I've also filled the buffer beam holes as I won't be fitting vacuum pipes. A touch of Tamiya Matt red and they're gone.
Finally a steady hand with black acrylic along the edges of the footsteps make them look much more presentable
That funny steam pipe from dome to cab next
