Hi Ex Pat. They are transfers, made by 'Modelmaster' for the A4,W1 and B17, the B17's lining is going to be next in line for an upgrade, I've made a start, removing the old (Horrible) lining a cleaning up the area, the black is now drying. A lining pen may get involved soon.

Been doing a bit of lining on a couple of locos, C1 and B2, the C1 was a B12 once upon a time :lol:

The J7 is almost finished, although I'll be buying some new wheels, not happy with the Hornby wheels.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Folks Well after a tidy up and a better coat of paint and it's M&GN number it looks a little better, I might leave it in it's 'Pristine' condition for a while, as I believe they were overhauled by the LNER when they were taken over from the M&GN, so this is how it would have looked in ...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents The 'Thumper' has been posted of to my Son, hope it gets there in one piece ! To stave off the Boredom of having nothing to do until my e-bay parcel arrives from my son, I thought I'd go Crazy and build two loco's at the same time, I had two Dublo/Wrenn 0-6-0 chassis sitting in the draw ...

Like your backscene, I have the same behind Edgware, it's rather imposing, isn't it, but beware the 'stick' on the back isn't a long lasting sticky, mine is slowly un-sticking, which I'm allowing, I'll re-stick it later, but again it could be the heat in Oz.

Re: Hawick via Grantham, Inverness and SIAM (00 gauge DC)

G'Day Gents Agree with Glencairn about the paint.....But, nothing got painted after the War, so anything painted Pre War, stayed that colour, for instance, a platform light at Kings Cross (Platform 16) was painted green in 1937, and was still in green in 1976, it was demolished soon after. You have ...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Lots of little adjustments on the C12 (metal body) Had the body and chassis running today, hooked up to 6 coaches, no worries there, but needs a little more weight, also coupled it up with the other C12, for some photo's (only got couplings on the back). Also been playing around with thi...
