I have been pottering along with No735. It ha not been a quick as I would like. But all in all I am happy with the progress.

As you will see from the photo's I am in the process of lining. Something that I find very hard to do. It is slowly coming together though, still needs work here and there to get it more even.

Hopefully it will not be too much longer before I can get 735 back together.

 

As an aside, does anyone here now if the cab back sheet on tank locos were green or black?

Looks like that new compressor you bought is getting bedded in and is that bow pen lining I see ?.

Lining looks bloody impressive to me! I suspect the back sheets were made like wagon tarps, in which case they started off black but went grey quite quickly.

Thanks, They are I am not happy with the paints I am using for the lining, I thought I had them all here with me, but there must still be some in the UK. Cant just nip down the road to buy some here. I was going to try my Bob Moores lining pen but forgot all about it.

Looks great. It was always a very nice livery and you're doing it full justice, I think.

Thanks. I am struggling with paint. I have only a matt whitish paint, there is nothing gloss in my selection I could use. Being matt, and with an air temp of about 35C it dries in the pen very quickly. I can only work with the air con on. I don't like to sit in the cooled air all day, I do not think it is very good for you.
