Re: Horsted Keynes - East Grinstead, OO, Another new loco....

Postby mattmay05 » Sat Oct 09, 2010 6:38 pm

I haven't posted an update as of late as ive been busy with other things, plus being unwell again :(

Anyway the good news is i have progressed quite a bit since last posting the primed body image.
3 coats of SECR green has been applied, followed by 2 coats of black lining and footplate, back head, smokebox ect.... followed by the lighter green lining, and also the gold ring behind the smokebox, the dome and the safety valve housing. Last to be painted buffer beam and smokebox detail.

I also almost forgot to apply the sand boxes to the chassis, this has now been done.

SECR Transfers arrived from FOX, coupling linkages have been ordered, and Plates will be ordered a bit later when i can afford them.

Sandboxes added behind the middle axle with some bent wire.

Thanks guys just another 4hours of lining to go :D usually takes me 8 hours to do one completely start to finish.

Also forgot to add Bluebell the other P-class on the end but wasn't around when i took it.
I forgot to mention the way i painted and varnished the wheels, without getting varnish on the metal contact patches.
I saw on another site, a guy using a plastic set piece with a variety of different circle sizes on it, i found one in WH Smith for about £2, one size perfectly fits the Jinty wheels and the othe other sizes on the set piece are perfect for other locos too, i'll take a picture of it later when i get back, as its perfect and saves alot time and effort cleaning the wheels.

A lovely transformation. That wasn't an old E1 chassis I saw there before Thomas, was it?
