Hi Jerry. 
 

Great Job on 90043. It’s certainly very tempting... but I’m being good this time! Someone’s in for a treat. Looking forward to 036!

 

Hi Jack- very restrained of you! 036 is on the back burner for a bit as loads of customer stuff on...which leads me to today’s update, Another Penny Black!

Hi Jack, just from my own pics taken at Ipswich there is a pretty big hire in fleet to be had!! That PBs not a teaser as it’s got a home already- I cant keep tempting you! Cheers Jerry

Hi Jerry,

 

Great job with the class 90s. I see that your wish for some blue on the workbench has come true.  Will make a nice for you from all that red and grey recently - enjoy!

And you have very kindly stuck a nice blue 20 in the next batch too! I’m getting all nostalgic:huh:

Lot of prep work going  fitting nameplates, detail packs etc so hence there hasn’t been many pics. Penny Black is ready for weathering and started the rough work on the 71,842 and the 24. As these go through the weathering process I’ll post more pics..123AA764-EAD9-4014-BEEE-E025943CF0A0.jpeg.9bba82538e147799657dde17aeadfd98.jpeg

Started the airbrush work on the weathering this morning, base colours on so these now need to harden up before next lot of paint.

first up is the 24, pics show it with fairly clean body sides and roof centres but the blues disappeared over the cabs and roof centre

likewise 842 nothing too heavy on this one

unlike 50004 which is going to be well grotty

lastly it wouldn’t be right not to have a 90 on here so Penny Blacks began its weathering.

that will be it for the day as off to the dentist now for the joy of having a tooth out- at least ( he hopes) it will get rid of this damn toothache!

Have very much enjoyed reading this thread start to finish. Some incredible modelling and the class 90s are the best I've ever seen. Keep up the great work. 

 

All the best,

Dave

 

It has prompted me to dig out some of my old Hornby 86s & 90s to practise my airbrushing. I would rather improve them that strip a brand new model.

Hi Dave, thank you very much for you kind words, much appreciated! There is more of my older stuff in the gallery on my website sqrail.com rather than just what I’m up to at present on here! Cheers Jerry

The Hornby 86 isn't too bad at all with some work, I did a couple last year and they don't look too bad - wish someone would make an etched headcode panel though! Happy spraying, cheers JerryIMG_4563.JPG.f5261c99fa154230d726f167bc203cc9.JPG

A busy morning on the workbench with weathering starting on 40106, at this point some of the wash is still wet so hence the streaky sides.

The finishing touches to three of the BR blue contingent were added today and a quick photo session - I would have taken some on Squirrels End stabling point but it is awaiting the OHLE repair team following an attack by a granddaughter :rolleyes: First up the DJ models 71, I love these as they just look sooo retro:

Next up 24077, shame Bachmann fitted the worlds thickest buffer heads....

Last of the blue trio 842,

Last completion of the morning was another 90019 which will be on its way back home tomorrow

next up another Paddington regular, not quite as glamorous but great fun and a really nice model. Drivers and passengers added and renunbered following by a weather. Couldn’t get a pic of all three together so here’s a driving car and the centre car.

Nice work going on here Jerry, superb as always. That 33 is lovely! I’ve got swordfish to do, did you use the factory supplied ploughs?
 

Kind regards,

 

Will

Hi Will, yep they’re the Heljan ploughs, not too bad and I just paint the moulding between them black to disguise them! Cheers Jerry
