Nothing has happen on this until now. I now have my little compressor. So thought it was time to give the body a good cleaning with scouring powder and Viacal. I had already blackened most of the body, I was just really doing the edges, but I think most of it was done.


It was then a light coat of Acid 8 etch primer. Just now needs a light rub with some very fine wet and dry. The chimney needs a little more work, but I think it will be OK at the end of the day. It is basically now ready for me to the start painting proper so maybe tomorrow I can start adding some colour, or at least black as I seem to have loads to do.

Good to see these locos getting some colour. Although it's always a little sad to see all the lovely brass disappear!

When it cam out the cupboard it was a mixture of brass black and tarnish not much brass at all. I am actually looking forward to getting this painted.
