Hi Pete

What's your take on the livery and lettering of that D class?

Tony

I'm red/green colour blind so probably not best person to comment on the colouring. It looks better in reality than it did in some of the photos, but still seems a bit light. The lettering is wrong, I'm going to remove and replace it at some point. I haven't got to the point where I'm happy enough with my attempts at SR lining to have a go at repainting it (although it could go into black). 

 

There's also a nasty join on the bottom of the boiler that doesn't seem to have attracted much attention online, and I had to glue the cab roof back on (the buffers were fine though).  It's a nice model, but could have been a bit better.

Yes, the green seems too pale and yellow-ish and despite the lettering being incorrect it is still a nice model overall - but could have been great!

I must have a look at the bottom of the boiler............
