It's finished! All detailing added and I've even risked my own hands with an airbrush to give it a basic weathering ahead of the Peterborough BRM show :)

 

Here's a few snaps

Pretty pleased, just got to clean the wheels and sort out the chuff frequency on the sound chip. Note cut down Bachmann coupling to allow for the vac pipe on the front buffer beam.

 

The original 93000 will be prepared for sale at the show (or after). I will be including a copy of the Hornby mag that it appeared in and a copy of the original weight drawing along with the loco, so if anyone fancies a complete one off for their BR Standards collection, come and see me on Summat Colliery at the show. Offers around £200.

Nice one Ian. I like it... A massive improvement compared to your first one. looking forward to seeing this soon. Don't think i can make Peterborough though.

Very nice indeed.  I have a drawing somewhere of either a 2-8-2 or a 4-8-0 which would make a nice addition to the set.
