Another project from the past few days was finishing off 5108.
The model was previously resprayed to correct Hornby’s tepid interpretation of GWR green, with transfers from HMRS and Narrow Planet number plates.
Weathering has been added using Vallejo paints, using the paint on / wipe off method.
In the end I’ve decided that I dont really need a 51xx right now, and would rather replace it with a current generation model either building a kit or if one appears in the bargain bin next year a new Hornby example. So the finished model is currently on eBay.
