Is it just me or is it sticking it's tongue out :lol:
😛😝😜🤪

You could choose any one of those. :D (smiley face).

Back to the 71, still to do:

Stainless worksplates on order. I actually ordered the wrong ones, but a call to Fox Transfers this morning and they have intercepted and changed my order - great service. Once received I’ll stick them on and then move on to:

Light weathering - the main question is the roof. Originally painted with white primer, and originally I expected to just do a black wash. But, black wash on white primer is how I achieve a weathered timber finish, which ain’t right for this. One reason why I sealed it with varnish. I think I may have to practice and experiment on something else first.

Finally test it to make sure I reconnected the lighting wires properly.

Transfers applied and sealed with satin varnish.
The varnish gives the impression on the unswept sections of the front windscreens (lucky accident - I had to clean it off the other windows as I had removed the Maskol too soon :oops: )

Very impressive results so far.

First class - if I need any more spraying done, I'll send it to you. :D
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

That looks great Steve. Nice touch with the air brush and I especially like the way the wiper effect on the windscreen shows up. I hope the owner is pleased. R-
Not sure if I have plenty of time on my hands - or I’ve simply forgotten to do something really important.

Very nice work Steve, you should give yourself a pat on the back for that job. Well done.

Been watching this thread with interest over the past week or so and very impressive end results........as mentioned previously I also like the wiper patterns and for me this loco has exactly the right amount of weathering to demonstrate in-service use....... very nice job indeed.
