  1. Ben, will the upward slope of the outer windscreens be corrected? This and the thick corner pillars are the most obvious errors that need correcting prior to production TIA
  2. Class 85 is IMHO Bachmann’s best yet!

    Fascinating and inspirational stuff Kevin Thanks for taking the time to post all the photos and write up. Totally agree with the horn grill comment - changing those to the tech version makes a huge difference to a loco. 37’s, 40’s as well has 50’s benefit form this mod. Even painting the 50’s marker lights white and running a fine black marker around the lip of lights to represent the black rubber makes a big difference. I like your decision to go for the earlier paint job that has yellow strip above the windows! Many thanks Ajax

    Hi Kevin Very impressed with what you’ve done with the 50, especially around the cab area. Redoing the cantrail combined with the reprofile of the nose has made a huge difference to the appearance to the loco and rectified the biggest issue with the Hornby model (IMHO) From the photos it looks as though you have done some filling and filing before putting the windscreen etches and cantrail on. Can you provide more detail and pics about this? Many thanks Ajax

    Enjoyed seeing this lovely piece of modelling for the first time over the DEMU weekend. The detail is very well done. Cracking stuff. Mark
  12. Surgical spirit works a treat. Using a kitchen towel the 'weathering' will just wipe away leaving a slight sheen on the body. Hard to get areas such as detail around the nose ends can be delt with with a cotton bud. You can then apply your own weathering touches and then matt varish it. HTH
  13. When are they going to paint the yellow warning panel on? Assuming the loco carries a headlight it need only be a small YP....
  14. This is a very interesting train! What was the working? And how often did the GW150 47's work into Scotland during 1985/6?
