Sylvian's commissions


Commission 7... the Metropolitan Prairie

Posted by Sylvian Tennant , 26 July 2016 - - - - - - · 337 views

A commission I did about a year ago for a lady's son. He wanted the LT 150 Prairie tank but with "Metropolitan 1" on the tanks instead. It was a bit of a ###### to finish off (possibly due to bad planning on my part) but the results speak for themselves :).  
This is the overall process in pictures.  


Commission 6

There were a few things I forgot to post a while back that I had done for other people so I'm hoping to catch up on this. 
Recently I was given a Class 08 (well I say recently I must have had it for the best part of a year). It was in a slight state of disrepair and had been bought second hand. I was told to replace the ladders and front steps as the...


Commission 5...the man power

I was given these little Hornby fellows by a friend to paint up, I think one set is for his "Black Prince" or "Cock of the North" 9F (I can't remember which!) and the chaps in green at the front (which isn't that prevalent because my of cr*ppy camera phone)for his GWR project, which I can only describe as a bit of a beast.

I also gave a quick slap...

57xx, BR, weathered, commission
Well, I won't go over the details of what I've done but I seem to have left a happy customer again.

It's another Pannier tank (quite enjoyable to weather really :))

Basically, it's all be painted using humbrol and some revell paints, I've added and repaired some detail such as missing brake rodding, some missing handrails, lamps irons and that....

66xx, Weathered, Hornby-Dublo and 1 more...
This my second commissions for a friend. Done for free for two main reasons. Firstly, I initially didn’t ask for a price and secondly…I’m not too happy with the outcome though he is completely fine with it.

It was a bit of an uphill struggle I don’t mind telling you, especially repainting it from scratch.

Any way here’s the...
