The scuffs on the boiler cladding have been buffed out and painted over, the transfers have been removed pending replacement so the loco could be painted in the same type of black to match the repair patches. She is currently sitting on the shelf looked rather bare!
The main damage: the big bash at the front, I have straightened out to the best of my abilities and glued the 2 pieces back together and painted. The damage isn't so noticeable now the brass is in black. Look closely and you can see, but from a distance she looks fine. All I need is a new smokebox door!
New transfers ordered. Hopefully some good progress by the weeks end!
are you repainting her into br livery or is it going to be Southern with sunshine lettering?
