Braver man than me :shock:
No need to be brave - it’s not my loco. :twisted:

Slight blemish in the pantograph area :shock: filled with white putty ready for sanding when completely dry.

Ivatt 2MT, and as they don't do repaints, an offer to put prospective customers my way if the Cl71 comes out ok. :D

Back to the workbench today.

First job was to rub down the filler I used last week, then mask off the roof.

Roof sprayed with Halfords white primer.

That's looking very good - can't wait to see the finished loco.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
