Hornby Peckett 0-6-0ST 'Westminster'. Step 5 - Buffer Beams.

Mick Bonwick


The ends of the chassis are tackled next, repeating the application of light coats to start the discolouration process. The locomotive is left in the pretty blue cradle and a piece of card positioned to mask off the area above the running plate.




This process will have left the top of the buffer beam without paint, so off comes the cradle and the piece of card is repositioned to protect the bodywork again.




The same process is utilised to do the other end of the locomotive.




In the last step you will notice that there is some overspray on the bodywork. This is left in place and will contribute to the random dirt effect to be applied soon.
