Great to see you've started a WB thread for all your projects .

Your workbench sounds full lol ,good work on the 08 did you manage any pics of the dodgy paintwork before your rescue job,or was it that bad you just wanted to get paint off lol

it'll be a lovely model once your through with it I'll look forward to the finished loco and hearing the biffo sounds

Hi Brian,

 

I have got a picture which I took on my phone, with an open tin of Phoenix BR Blue for colour comparison, although the blue on the loco looks lighter in the photo that it actually was.

I'll be fitting it with LED directional lighting. I've already drilled the lamp units out with a 1.75mm drill ready for the fibre optic to fit in after being attached to the SMD LED's.

 

 

 

Tove,

 

Well I've got to compete with all this Blue and RF I keep seeing on here!!!!! ;)

Hi Craig,

The 08 is mine and is the result of the 'Numpty' from Scarborough. Fortunately David has come to the rescue and his statement pretty much sums up the finish on it.

I'll probably get it back from David before Dapol gets their 08's out so I won't feel guilty spending all this money on it when I could get the Dapol one for much cheaper.

 

Regards

 

Chris

Hi Craig

I did get everything back. Though the two 03's required a lot of fettling to get them running properly. Plus the 60 wasn't finished nor the two 20's.

I know David will do a good job going off what I've seen in his posts.

Regards

I've made a start on the OAA wagon.

A couple of washes and some detail weathering started, I need to replicate the spills inside as they show outside.

This is more of an experiment to see how the Heljan paintwork reacts to certain types of weathering mediums.

 

A long way to go yet, and the Heljan paintwork is accepting different mediums very well.

I should have some more of the 08 to show tomorrow, the body getting very near the painting stage.

Just a little update this evening, to show the 08 body just about ready for paint.

 

I've fitted the front box covers, replaced the grilles all round correctly as they were just glued on top of the original grilles, added the overhead hazard warning plates, added the window surrounds on the rear and side windows and re-soldered the door on one side in an open position.

 

All washed and cleaned up and awaiting primer.

Next it's onto one of what I believe to be the hardest part, the floor and subframe including the buffer beams and replacement tanks and mounting units.

Also 08886 did not have the filleted valance at the cab end, so that will need cutting away, and I'll get cracking on that over the next couple of days now.

 

Right off to prime that body.

Just picked up this thread as I was away in Cornwall last week. Really good work Jinty and the speed atwhich you are progressing really makes me jealous. I too will be following this thread in the hope that I can learn al lot from you.

The 08 is now nice and dry in white primer and a quick look over the shell shows that there isn't much in the way of imperfections, so I'll be attacking this with colour at the beginning of next week. I say this as I'm waiting for my yellow and blue to be mixed up in cellulose from swatches I've painted myself.

 

I've used the Phoenix BR Blue as a base but mixed a small amount of BR Faded Blue into it to lighten it off a touch, and then got my local autopaint experts to mix it up accurately in Celly form as I prefer that as a medium to work with. Not the cheapest at £20 a half litre, but if you add the equivalent cost of either Phoenix or Railmatch to that 500ml ammount, I think you'll see how cheap it is in reality.

 

Here's the 08 in Primer, awaiting a little gentle rub down in a few areas...........................

And a big thanks to Steve at Railtec Transfers for his new line of custom transfers to any number 08 with any depot code.

The order code is C0804 and you will be asked what depot code and number you want.

No connection just a repeat satisfied customer on numerous occasions.

 

Here is the sheet...........

More over the weekend I hope, including the continuation of the weathering.

The details are very crisp. I am always rather relieved when I spray the priming coat onto a model as it pulls the messy appearance together. What it your plan for the wasp stripes?

Hi Chris,

 

Well the wasp stripes are going to be masked on the rear and on the front sides, but around the radiator grille unit they will be hand painted as getting behind the pipework with masking tape would be difficult. Alternatively I could remove the pipework, but that seems like more work to be honest.
