37403- finished

37493 is has now had the missing depot plaque scares added, along with a coat of Dullcote to blend in the gloss around the transfers.  It has also been reunited with its cab bulkheads and glazing, and hence is now ready for weathering (for which I need to decide how far to go.  The roof certainly needs it to blend in the slight colour change or the repainted panel around the roof grill.

67003 - transfers

Another long term workbench resident received transfers in my latest Railtec delivery.  So 67003 now has transfers applied, with Railtec used for the body side and end numbers / EWS logos.  Along with using the spare post 98 ohle flashes included in the Railtec 37403 pack.  The GM logos and the cab side EWS crests were from a spare Fox sheet.   one difference with the Railtec transfers was that it very clearly said not to use Microsol products to get it to sit over the body side ribs.

It still needs a coat of varnish before replacing the windows and a fair amount of weathering.

47051 Railfreight Distribution

After hearing mention of a spare Bachmann 47 body shell in RFD livery I snapped it up to build as a 2nd loco to run with my other RFD 47 on the Silver Bullets.    The plan is a little complicated in that I have got the loco running in its current guise, but it will eventually undergo a major rebuild.   My longer term aim is that I want to take the body and plastic frame comprising the head stocks from this model and use some Heljan bogies to make an unpowered partner for the other 47.  Wi

47016 Respray

As is often the case over the summer my motivation to get on with any modelling has rather taken a battering, the loss of the exhibition circuit hasn’t helped given a decent show would normally reinvigorate the modelling mojo.  There are still a number of in progress projects which have been sat on my workbench since June, mostly awaiting me finding a way to fix my CAD computer so that I can run some needed parts through the cutter…   But the past few nights have seen a return to model
