Hi all,

 

I had just finished writing v1 of this final chapter and was about to add the photos when I had a windows error message come up and have had to start again.

 

Well, the build is now complete - the cab canopy is on and the coalman has been, the fireman has dirtied his trousers (you would not think so but it is a trick of the flash - honest) and the Johnson's Klear has found another use - the water overspill in amongst the coal.

A great kit to build and all credit to Dave Sharp for producing such a masterpiece, hopefully, I'll be doing another one from his range in the new year.

 

The loco will be running on the O Gauge Group's 'Layout in Progress' at the Merseyside MRS Exhibition at the Pacific Road Arts Centre, Birkenhead from tomorrow evening and all weekend - full details on

That is realy, really good. I have a somewhat lesser 7mm Q1 kit to build, it won't turn out anywhere as near as good as yours, but your build has certainly been inspirational to me.

That is stunningly lovely B)

 

I especially like the coal and water spill on the back of the tender - how did you do that?

Hi Pugsley,

 

glad you approve.

 

real coal held in position with diluted PVA and left for a day then two coats of Johnson's Klearon the 'exposed' part of the sheet. On 'reflection' if you will excuse the pun, I could have just used the Klear by itself and carried out both operations at the same time - we live and learn.

That is one stunning loco, I also like to give them the weathered look of the late 50's so this build of yours is right up my street.

 

Regards, Martyn.

Hi Kev,

 

thanks, the yellow triangles I cut out from a piece of Trim Line self adhesive tape.

 

Hi Martyn,

 

glad you like the finished article. Weathering is the incentive to finish the model as far as I'm concerned.

An excellent result Mike - well done. icon_thumbsup2.gif

 

Methinks I'll be bending Mr MOK's ear about a S7 friendly version next time I see him. icon_e_biggrin.gif

Hi Kev, 28ten & Dan,

 

thanks for the comments, having had a few anxious moments when I first opened the box and saw the detail in the frets, I am really pleased that it turned out so well, due mainly to the thought that Dave put into the design in the first place. I shall be dropping Dave a line next week, once the dust has settled from this weekends exhibition and then possibly do an article for the G0G Gazette - (the November issue due out any time now, PO permitting)

 

regards

thanks Dibateg, it went down well over the weekend at Birkenhead too - even though it was sat next to two blue 'Duchesses'
