An advanced warning loads and loads of photos.

 

This is basically two posts in one.

 

We start the show with the green having been masked off, about 2 hours work. The black was then sprayed and the masking removed. All in all I am quite pleased with the finish. There is still the detail work and the buffer beams to be painted.

Also shown is a strip of Magic tape painted ready for cutting into the boiler bands.

I notice I did not clean the back head after paint scraping. This has now been done.

 

 

Now the buffer beams have been painted, and most of the fiddly bits also. I have started the reassembly the tender is complete but there is still quite a bit to do on the loco. So here is where we are now. Another session and we should be there. Then it is down to getting it to the UK.

I have just noticed I have a hair or something on the lens. Must find it before I take anymore.

Very nice - the boiler bands have turned out excellently. Handrails should be body colour though (green adjacent to green, black adjacent to black).

Very nice looking loco, I'm sure once it gets to the U.K. it's owner will be delighted with it.

Would tempt me into 7mm if I could afford it. Rhys

I will send you a PM shortly.

Thanks.

Yes I understand they should be, but with the boiler being a separate part it was not added until after assembly. Maybe I will touch them in and re varnish.

Thanks Dave

I am pleased with it. I was unhappy with the black on the body but fortunately the varnish brought it all together nicely.

Hi Pete, well you've made my day :-) I've just come from catching up on your excellent LSWR thread and now see your Mogul finished. The way you've got the sheen just right on that loco is *very* good, I think. As WD0-6-0 said above, this is the best kind of advertisement 7mm modelling can get.

It is almost finished the body and tender are done, it is just tweaking the chassis to get everything spot on with the body on.
