After about 5 years, the build of this David Andrews A1 kit has been completed by Peter Relf for me and a very nice job too.
Will require a little fettling to put up with the vagaries of my outdoor track (it is compensated/sprung) but the wait has been worth it!
We had a debate about the BR Express blue and I found a BS colour called 'Roundel Blue' that I think looks good, but this livery is always one for debate as regards the blue.
The next stage will be very light weathering as apart from ex-works locos got grubby quickly at this time in the early 1950's.
So for these pics on the set of Peter Cowling Pullmans it's in pristine condition, just ex-works.
