Big thanks to Jerry for getting 56057 British Fuels done for me. As my forum name suggests 057 has always been a favourite of mine and it's great to now have it in model form.

Hi Chris, looks great with the detailed chassis and the lights on- thanks for trusting me to do it for you, cheers Jerry

Love them. Especially Viking - I had the Lima version of this - first model I brought when I returned to modelling in 1998.

Chiltern Bubble car is now finished. This started out as the orangey brown Railtrack thing but is now in good old Blue and grey.

Next up is something I haven't worked on before, 3D printed bodyshells. I've given them a coat of primer and now filling in a few  holes before flattening them all off and another coat of primer.

The other fun today was sorting out these five, a motley selection requiring repairs and removal of the Hornby weathering before denumbering and renaming. The chassis are all sorted so next up is sound fit for all of them and then renumbering and weathering.

Hi jerry. Will the next class 90 you respray be 90048.  It's  in for a repaint into Freightliner Orange and black livery .:lol: Alf

Hi Alf, I have the paint for doing that but reckon if Bachmann ever do some more it’s a good chance they will do that livery so so far have resisted that one! Cheers Jerry

Those 50’s are looking good Jerry. Once the 90’s and 66 are done I may need to send some of mine over to look more realist! They are far to pristine!

More great work! Has the LM 150 got a home or is it coming up for sale? Only the second one I've seen done.

It’s already got a home so accounted for! I haven’t seen another one - have you got a link or a picture of it please? Cheers Jerry

I don't have any pics unfortunately but it was on a layout called Foxhampton which was at Stafford show last year: https://www.staffordrailwaycircle.org.uk/layouts/members-layouts-2/foxhampton/

 

I'd quite fancy one in debranded LM, as per when they transferred to Northern so when the pennies allow I think I know where I'll be coming for one!
