He used cling-film first! I think it looks very realistic.

I agree, a great way to make a throwaway into a significant static model..............HB

Great idea using cling film first. This method could be used for all sorts of things that get covered in tarp/canvas.

Thanks Steve.

Excellent idea - I need to make a tarpaulin for a Wickham trolley to hide the decoder and this will work very nicely.

One of the best sheeting jobs I have seen in a long time. Not easy to do that. Very good job...............John

It does look impressive, and a great way to upcycle an old loco.

Impressive, glad you posted this. Guess what I'll be doing with all my 40+ year old locos which won't convert to DCC? Just need a long condemned siding, or two!
