A brace of shunters

A little progress today saw the 03 get its first coat of paint and the chassis a bit of treatment. Still some way to go yet but things are starting to come together nicely.

 

The Ruston is all but ready for a good clean up and primer. I'm debating whether to put the handrails on yet. I probably will but I'm going to sleep on it.

 

I had to make some adjustments on the Ruston chassis as having fitted my preferred wiper pick ups, I found that it conflicted with the inside hanging brake gear. One minor modification later, I'm quite happy with the inevitable compromise. Oh and it works too!

I see the effects of the 'Steamy Chuff' magazine have worn off... ;) :lol:

 

They're both looking good, especially the 03!

Looks like it needs a chat with those fine purveyors of pills I keep fighting out of my email inbox ;).

 

Does look superb though and a nice rich green too compared to the latest RTR finishes.
