PDK 4707 part 11

4707 PDK 47xx

I am now on the home stretch with the 47xx, first up the Black has now been painted. I couldn’t believe how long it took to mask the green, some areas such as the splashers were particularly tricky.

 

Once dry it was then time to brush paint the tricky areas, along with two small patches where the black seaped under the masking.

 

The red has had another coat added (although still needs a third coat), and the transfers have been added to the tender. Finally the tender chassis and sub chassis are now connected.

Still to do:
The balance weights need a second coat of black
Fit cab interior
Attach con rods (still need washers)
Redo pickups to touch wheel tread not wheel back, I think there is too much risk of a short with the latter
It may need another rewire, as I am not at all happy with how difficult the model is to get the body on.
Once red paint is dry, add bufferbeam numbers and varnish
TEST!
