Daves Workbench: Project 90

Postby PTmodeller » Tue Sep 09, 2008 9:34 pm

Evening all,
The latest project I've started is the detailing of a Hornby 90. I intend to go the whole hog- etched grilles, flush glaze, sort out the front fairing, Kadees, pipes, correcting the roof boxes, correcting the roof fins, correcting the roof aeriels and a full repaint into EWS as 90018. Oh, and I've forgotten an Express Models lighting kit. And wire handrails, correcting the TDM cables and filling the roof switch.

Plenty to be getting on with.

As it stands, I'm awaiting a Kadee so I can start work on remodelling the front below platform level. This will be phase one, including filling and joining the two parts Hornby made the fairing in, Kadees, pipes and new buffers. I'm pretty sure that's it...

Time for an update:
Buffers have been replaced with correct round ones, I used A1 Models Oleo buffers. They were sprung but they didn't really work so Ive glued them up because they were unbelievably fragile. Full bufferbeam detailing is on at one end, the other end is only half way through.
The body has seen the roof grilles drilled out in preperation for some etched replacements- need to get around to cutting them out!
The yellow ends are now in place- just. They'll have to be touched up a bit by hand. EWS maroon was applied earlier on and its still drying.

Pictures when I find the camera and the yellow can be unveiled.

Excellent stuff. I've always been disappointed by the standard detail on the 90. So am keen to see how this turns out!!
