I completed the other project this morning - repairing some glue damage and renumbering an LMS Black 5.

I removed the old numbers and carefully sanded down the traces of glue, then resprayed the cabsides and roof inside the red lining. The smokebox received a coat of weathered black to simulate heat discoloration.

New numbers applied, along with shed plate and smokebox numbers and an overall coat of satin varnish to tie it all together.
Unfortunately the glue used on the cab had discolored the cab windows so new windows were made from some spare Perspex.
Also added the brake rodding and front steps and repaired the fallplate

Another fine job Steve..........you are certainly putting the hours in at the moment between fine detailed work like this, to wood-working and layout planning - exhausted watching you, but admiring the progress and quality throughout.
