IVATT CLASS 2 TANK (26)

Here we are at the end of another adventure. The Ivatt has now been finished apart from glazing.

 

I was very pleasantly surprised the transfers from Fox arrived in 22 days, for mail not tracked it must be a record. It normally just never arrives. The emblem is from Fox and the numbers from HMRS. As usual I had to use 3 of the lovely emblems to get two. But never mind.

 

I think the lining looks a lot better now coated with some black tinted varnished.

 

All in all I am pleased with the way it turned out What do you think.

 

Next up is a Dukedog rebuild. I am not sure whether to continue it on here as a blog or open a thread as I did for my own models. Not sure if it is me but there seems to be a decline in responses here. But I will not need to decide now as I am going to get on with the G6 now as it is only a few weeks before we go away. So it will not be started until November, need some tender wheels from Guildex anyway.

Nice to have the bench clear for things that are just for me.

Looks great Pete, a really purposeful looking beast! I think responses always tail off in the summer, people are hopefully outside enjoying the sunshine!

 

Looking forward to the next build :-)

Another beautiful job Pete, the mention of the black tinted varnish is interesting. Do you buy it tinted or do it yourself with black paint? If so what proportion roughly?

Thanks Mark

The I have to study the Dukedog, most of the loco is done but there are a few gaps between parts so may need to be stripped down.

You may be partly right, but to me the views etc seem to of been reducing over the last year. Unless my modelling is going down hill.

I mix the varnish myself. I use what is on the stirring stick after mixing a new 14ml tinlet to a 14ml tinlet of varnish. That is about as accurate as it gets. It works well on darker colours to tone it all down a bit. I have heard of people using browns for lighter co;ours but I have never used so cannot say if it works. I would of thought a bit of body colour would of been better.
