Well here are a few pics of some of the things I have done over the last few years, I will post pics of the current project later









to start with, the reason for my on screen name, my support coach for my favorite loco 35028 Clan Line, made from a Bachmann BFO Lined with HMRS Pullman lining and custom name panels & crests









My W1, made from a Hornby chassis and a Dean Sidings body kit, heavilly modified and detailed. I have used some modellers licience and fitted the name plates that where allocated to it but never worn









The second water tender I made for my A4 Commonwealth of Austrailia, loosely based on the one owned by Bittern. Made from a Hornby China tender, heavilly bashed









And the B17/5, a right mixed bag of donors used on this one, chassis is a Bachmann B1 (old one) modified to fit, Hornby B17 tender chassis with motor removed, and the body from the Dean Sidings range, again modified to suit my needs

 

And currently on the bench, another og Gresleys beasts, a P2/3 This time from a donor kit chassis (unknown origin) that was given to me, a Hornby (Margate) A4 body for cab and front end, a Hornby (Early China) A3 for fire box & boiler, valve gear. Other items from the spares box will be used, and parts from Peters Spares. I have a old tender drive tender, but will not be using that, and have two other tenders in the post from other sources






More work has been done on this one since these pics where taken, I will update further once I have taken more pics

 

Thanks for looking

 

Brian

Time for an update

Work has progressed slowly on the P2, the main upper structure is made, all the filling shaping complete and a couple of coats of grey primer added

Running plate test fitted to the chassis

heres what it looks like at the mo






still got the tender to sort out, I should have that sorted by the end of the week tho (I hope)

I was going to paint this one in war time black, but a chat with my brother has sent me in a different direction. So my modellers licience is coming out, hope your seating down for this one, in this project world, Edward Thopmson didnt take charge of the LNER so the re-rebuild into an A2/2 didnt happen, it made it into BR days in this form, so I am going t paint it BR steam loco blue with early crest, running number 2009 (skipping 2007 & 8 as 7 is going to be used by the A1SLT and there is also another group building a P2)

So thats it for now

Brian

A lovely looking piece of work Brian. The livery sounds quite interesting and will certainly be different.
