Cambridge Blues....A trio of J15's from 31A.

Hornby's J15 is a superb model and in my eyes captures the feel of the prototype nicely. Yes there are a few errors but it has filled an important void in my fleet.
Sadly Hornby over produced these new models resulting in bargains to be had for less than £70 in some instances from the usual sources.

These three represent J15's found working on the Cambridge-Kettering line in the 1950's. 65390/65461 were renumbered with Fox decals whilst 65475 is pure Hornby. They are finished in my usual style utilising Tamiya/Valejo acrylics either airbrushed, dry brushed or applied as a wash to build up the weathering, The sheet rail on the tenders were made up from scrap metal /plastic fixings. 65461 has a sheet made up from decorators masking tape and painted with Valejo acrylics.

Nice work Mark.

 

Thought I was suffering from treble vision at first :jester:

 

Nice work on the subtle but effective weathering too :good:

 

You are building up quite a fleet there now.

It has to be said these are a trio of very attractive little chaps......even to someone who is not a fan of the L&NER...

 

Splendid work as usual, Mark.
