Default Updates:

Its been a while since I have posted anything as I have been quite busy with customers kits and projects, having finished 2, with one to go, but I have been busy on some of my own models finishing them ready for a final magazine appearance, which the photo shoot will take place in early August.

Terrier updates:
This is one of those small projects which I did over a weekend. I modified the Dapol / Stepney body shell to remove the sand boxes at the front of the model as in real life it doesn't have any on the splasher.
I removed this and filled the void with plasticard and shaped it to how I wanted it, also adding some lubrication pots to the smoke-box saddle.
Also changed was the moulded pipework to the clack valves, repaint the side of the running plate and chassis.
Fenchurch also had some livery updates and changes.
You can see more of there work here: https://flic.kr/s/aHskViCw7J




SECR O1:
This was quite a big job, took a few weeks, I had to go back home to print out and design some transfers, as my Golden Arrow kit of an O1 was starting to look a bit behind recent efforts so I took the decision to re do the livery on the O1 to make it a bit more up to date... plus the O1 has returned to steam on the Bluebell so can't be left behind...
Also updates to the chassis which is a generic 0-6-0 Hornby chassis, I purchased some etched rods and to improve the look of the chassis.
You can find a write up of the work on my website on my signature.

Pre-Grouping stock:
Last year I designed and 3D printed some wheeler body shells to replicate the Bluebells set of SECR / LCDR coaches, its taken a fair while to finish them all (due to the lining) but they are now all complete, running on a RTR wagon chassis from eBay made by Jouef which was modified to look like the chassis they are actually on.

Hi Matt
Smashing job on those coaches. The 01 is out of this world but I've got to say a brass dome would have been better. Still great, though

Good to have you back Matt. The lining on the coach is outstanding.

Have tried some new techniques for brass, but I am not happy with the results yet so didn't want to risk it till it was right.

Thanks for your comments all.

How do you do the lining? Transfers? Master lining pen?

Some transfers I make myself like the SECR ones, some are lining sheets.
