Things have moved on a bit since the last update. The body fabrication has been completed and the base coat of satin black applied. Buffer beams repainted (which are Hornby class 31 for info) and the body fittings replaced. Nothing left now other than tackle the lining :locomotive:

 

The chassis has also had black paint applied to the fabricated bits and so I could do an (almost) final assembly the cylinders had their red lining applied and satin varnished. Just need to get a Zimo sound decoder and 9F sounds before hard wring it all in.

Last thing I indulged myself in a pretty pointless exercise of detailing up the cab a bit. Most will never be seen, but I'll know it's there

The crew came with the donor 9F and were good enough to drop in without any further work.

 

Hours of painstaking work with the Pressfix awaits .....................

Good luck with the lining. Every time I've  tried them in the past they have ended up stuck to everything other than where they should be:O . Hence the reason Roomey hand lined most of mine before a good coat of grott!!!

 

looking forward to seeing the end result. If the men in white coats haven’t arrived with a straight jacket for you :crazy:

What a beast. Germanic, but without all the extra pipes and wiggly bits on the outside.
