Sir Nige looks great in that colour scheme. Wonderfully understated and elegant. Also looks quite similar to the colour scheme for the scotch I designed for a class in yr 12.

To quote the name of a Genesis song;

'Anyway'


The GCR 9J is still mid painting process and looks a bit of a mess at present, it is also waiting on the tender wheels to arrive and the plates. it still needs further painting and tidying up and varnishing as well as lining and further varnishing.
Here are a couple of photos of it in the depot at Wenchford.

9J is looking brilliant, it is progressing well (just like all your other locomotive projects :D )

Cant wait to see it finished.

Looking very good is that little 0-6-0; very nice livery.

Hi Dan

got a couple of questions for you,

firstly, where did you get the nameplates for your model of 6024?, been looking online at Fox and Modelmaster, I know the fox kits include the smokebox numberplate and cabplates, are the modelmaster kits the same?

also are they easy to fit?, been meaning to get around to re-numbering my BR Liveried 6002 and turn it into 6024, but a bit nervous about making any mistakes,

next question, where do you get your loco lamps from?, the only place I have ever seen them was at the greatly missed Harrow model shop ( never got round to picking a few packs up).

any advice will be appreciated

cheers

Probably get from Guilplates and attach them with a spot of gel Superglue, as it doesn't run and make a mess and use some tweasers to hold it and drop it roughly in the right spot.

Sadly they have no website, they take orders by E-Mail and payment by Cheque.
