Blog- Paternosterrow - XP 64 Project


Recommended Posts

A little project to celebrate the 50th Anniversary. I always loved the red flash double arrow logo and wish BR had adopted it for the whole of the corporate era. <br /><br /><br /><br />There's certainly a lot of life left in these old Lima models. I spent a lot of time trying to match the colour BR had first used - turquoise blue - and eventually found this colour. It's not a perfect match and seeing how I'm limited to using spray cans (I haven't yet plucked up the courage to go buy an air brush) it was the closest I could find. The transfers are from Railtec and are brilliant, but fell apart when I used my particular brand of matt varnish - good job I bought two sets!<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />I wished I'd had sprayed the yellow panel - it was hand painted with Humbrol Insignia Yellow and turned out a bit lumpy. I should have removed the square headlamp and also wished I'd have gone for flush glazing. However, for only my second loco bash I'm pleased with the result.<br /><br />Happy Birthday XP 64.<div id='attach_wrap' class='rounded clearfix'>
