There's a gag about a tender behind somewhere.....

It's worth replacing the handrails and putting some glazing into the cab, I'm sure there used to be off the shelf super detail kits, perhaps a proper railhead will chip in .

Enjoy the kit, I'm sure you'll be chuffed with it!

Oh I've put it to one side for the moment , last few weeks i've been unable to sit still long enough without my back aching

plus also I have a P-40 plane thats been bugging me on my shelf

So to get myself all motivated again ..i've stripped all the paint off and going to give that a re-paint :analintruder:

Which loco are you planning to build I may be able to supply proper running numbers and etched nameplates with fully detailed crests.

Well I think this ones the Biggen Hill loco ... as for the plates I'd be interested ..You don't have the rear ladders

the kit version was total s***e so i have sanded all those off

But hopefully I'll get some pictures up soon

Are you getting anywhere with this 'un Sean? I got the same loco - in an Airfix box I think but it may be the Dapol, can't remember - which I could knock together quickly for Telford.

I'm a big Bullied BofB/West Country class fan so would enjoy the challenge - I think I've got some Fox decals for the orange/black loco and tender lining also somewhere. Let me know where your at buddy.

Cheers

I tossed it in the bin by accident :shithappens: I put it in the box with the hobby boss Mirage :banghead: which I decided I couldn't be bothered to finish and threw it in the old bin

I then realised after the dustman had taken the mirage ..the Loco that just needed green paint and decalling was also in the box ..so basically it got binned :rofl:

Bex, if I was to tell you the fate of this build, you wouldn't believe me. :whistle:

Suffice to say if anybody is up for building one so that we can show one of these at Telford, feel free. If I get time I might try it myself.

And, no, it didn't get the hammer treatment. :fraidnot: , but it might as well have! :)

peebeep

Damn, he beat me to it!

:rofl:
