Re: Forced to slow down.

Hi Steve What a start for the new year! Think positive! Lots of us on here are wrecks, decrepid, and otherwise fit for the knackers yard. You did a good job on my Black 5 and I did promise that you can do a repaint and renumber on a Duchess, so start thinking about it! Seriously, do what the medics ...

Hi Steve
Brilliant job. Thanks for a job well done. I'm only sorry you had so much messing around with the lining on the footplate. You've got some nice photos there for your advertising shots.
Thanks again

You're doing a grand job - it looks really nice :D

Re: Painting and Weathering Service

Hi Steve Looks good, in particular the coal level in the tender. The FOX transfers appear to be good although I've never used them. I got some Change Identity packs from Modelmasters a couple of years ago - haven't used them yet, but they look good.. SWMBO is in the middle of a 'purge' in the loft, ...
