Day 93: Bagnall progress

TurboSnail

113 views

The Bagnall 16" takes another step forward - the majority of the painting is done now, the cab interior added, the chassis finished. I'm hardly the best painter in the business, but it's passable from 30cm away, and weathering should hide a few sins. Next jobs are to make the cab roof, add a whistle, and then wait a few months for the nameplates that are on order! I'm quite excited to get a coat of matt on this, which should make it look a lot better, then weathering, but I'll have to wait until I've got the nameplates and numbers for that.

If I may, I suggest that you do a second coat of red on the running plate and brake gear, or if your going for the weathered look then the current coat will look fine. Excellent work though.

Thanks :) The red on the footplate and chassis is supposed to be a different shade, more purple-y than the bufferbeams, so I think it's fine, though it will get weathered too. The chassis is already partially weathered as it was much easier to do this while it was apart for repainting.
