Thanks Rob.  I just did it by hand with a brush using Flickr pictures for for the details.

Another massive gap between updates but anyway progress has been made.

I have just finished weathering 60054 with driver fitted along with blinds in his cab. Wire loop fitted at the other end and it is a TTS sound fitted example which I will upgrade the speaker on at some point.

Colas 37099 and 66847 have been back on the workbench for the latest Colas diamonds to be fitted and the 66 had a renumber and name added. The 66 I bought second hand an age ago cheap, sadly it was already weathered so not up to my standards but still not too bad.

A Network rail JNA has just been finished with some of Steadfast’s transfers applied as then a little more weathering added along with some chopped up old rail added as its load.

Also completed the weathering on DRS 37425 (finally), a Bachmann intermodal twin with ECS containers and my remaining 3 grey Revolution JNA wagons. 
I have also finished GBRF 47739 but just require some multiple working connectors to complete it. 
Loads more on the go that I will update next time.

Looking superb as always Andy! 
 

The Colas 37 looks particularly pleasing with the washes highlighting dirt on an otherwise good condition loco, really nice! It’s made a garish toy model into something very real, meaty and substantial looking! :dirol_mini:


My old mind got excited seeing the text about 60054, thinking “ooh a bit of Petroleum livery” before the images eventually loaded up on my phone :lol:
 

Cheers,
James

Thanks James. Real 37099 is looking nicely grimy now which looks great on the split head code noses.


It’s great to think that for you 60054 in R/F Pet brings back great memories whilst for me it’s current livery and the fact I have seen it recently not far from Didcot suits me. 


Hope your Didcot layout is progressing, can’t wait to see it with all your amazing stock on show one day.

69001 is just about there. Tiny amount of filler in a couple of spots. Will do this when I next have filler out for something. 
I went out on a cruise all a couple of weeks back and saw 60054 in its new HVO graphics and after purchasing a Hornby DB donor

loco it had to be done. This is as far as I have got at the minute. Just needs sealing and then weathering.

Hi Andy,

Another nice batch of models, 60054 in particular looks ace with the "clean but used" look and the sunblinds are a nice touch.

Glad to see the JNA decals work well in 4mm too!

Cheers

 

Jo

Looks like GBRF have finally obliged with a livery option for your class 69

Indeed and it looks very nice. The question is do I wait and see what other liveries appear or do I paint now? I might wait out a bit as I think 69001 is off to the paint shop very soon.

Mini update with more to come. I have sold my Colas 56’s and started to redo a pair to my new higher standards.

Settled on 56090 as one of them which brings an interesting exhaust arrangement. 2 of the 4 exhaust ports are longitudinal and the other 2 are laterally positioned. See the picture below. Does anyone know why they are like this on 56090? (there may be others but not looked into it). Obviously I have copied the real loco and I’m super pleased with the look.
Anyway painting has started as can be seen in the other picture. Will get the orange on tonight.

Some great work there Andy. I look forward to getting on to my locos and stock at some point. I really want the layout in a more finished state before I move on to them though, plus my air brushing skills will be better I hope.

As always a shed loads of work going on. I have finally finished the Colas 56 and EMR purple HST power car as seen below. I will update more later in the week but just letting you know I’m still busy plugging away.

Some better pics of Colas 56090. Looks the business and is fitted with Legomanbiffo Loksound V5 sound file.

I have also started painting the class 69! Hopefully have all the colours on by the end of the weekend.

The 69 is now fully painted (I have also nearly completed the transfers).

Completed shell pictures tomorrow. Then I will start to modify the chassis.

Just a couple of pics of 56090 at home on the layout with the Prestwick tanks. Looks fab and glad I did myself a new Colas 56 as the old ones didn’t quite hit the spot. Going to do a partner for it at some point. 
Next update will be along soon.
