Well a few days away last week witht he Domestic Overlord and our two dogs meant that progress on the Workbench of Doom came to a hault, but getting up to North Yorkshire is always a good thing in my view. Even better though because naturally I am always a good boy the Domestic Overlord decicded to treat me and I now have a an additional coaches to the my passenger stock.

 

Anyway I digress, before we went away on our little trip I managed to do a little more lining to the splashers on my last two Jubilee's and add this to the other one that has been clogging up the Workbench of Doom.

 

So impressed was I with the progress I decided to get a move on and actually give the locomotives their identities, thats where I hit a wall as I could not decide which of the many options to portray (I think this is the modelling Gods way of saying get more Jubilee's :)) This is where the Domestic Overlord stepped in, remarkably not to shout at me for having too many locomotives but to actually select the names for the actual locomotives.

So now No's 5641 Sandwhich, 5702 Colossus and 5730 Ocean have or will soon be added to the fleet, all too apparent in the photograhs are a few areas that need to be touched up, its strange how they appear obvious in photo's but not to the naked eye so much. I tend as projects are progressing of taking pictures just to see of there are areas that are not so good, its a tip I was taught years ago.

So whats next to do? the first job is to get the nameplates sorted and then I think they will all receive a little or even a lot of weathering to not onlly hide the ropey lining but also represent typical LMS loco's in the 30's-40's some of them appeared very very grimy, oh and they need a crew.

 

I only have the lining for a Princess to finish then all my attention will be on future "plain black" locomotives, so it will be simple freight locomotives for me, well maybe I should consider some plain black Jubilee's.

 

So the good news is there should not be many more posts on these Jubilee's which must be a relief for anyone who has read the previous ones. Hang on I think I have been had, if the Domestic Overlord helped me select the names for these three, when we went through the list of Jubilee names, I may have said "already got that one" for the nine examples in the fleet. DOES THIS MEAN THE DOMESTIC OVERLORD HAS WORKED OUT HOW MANY I HAVE :( HELP

 

Until the next time, if I will ever see a next time, Happy Modelling

dangerous to allow the "Domestic Overlord" know how many locos you have..mine looked in all my stock boxes while I was away once....

 

The Jubilees do look nice though!
