It's been a long time since I've posted! But I've been busy none the less, mostly with my N gauge models, but thanks to a kind offer of a Bachmann 08 in response to a wanted post I've got the most generic and useful loco of all - a BR blue 08. I've replaced the glazing with Shawplan laserglaze, some etched windscreen wipers and added Smith's screw-links, along with some other bits and bobs. Weathered using oil paint washes, a blast of Citadel Purity Seal spray varnish to tone down the finish and powders from Humbrol, Mig and Forge World. Really pleased to have 2 Gronks to a decent standard ready for shunting duties on my plank!
