That's a pain with the transfers Nick......I had exactly the same issue matching little pieces up...........but you know what? If you had mentioned it I wouldn't have noticed.

I think you have done a great job and certainly achieved your objective of adding some unique stock to Much Murkle

Kind regards

John

Thanks John. Having left them for a couple of days I'm beginning to think the imperfections will be hardly noticeable when running under exhibition conditions. I will of course present the best sideof each coach to the audience. ;-)

Hopefully I'll get a bit of time to do some more work on them this week.

And a good trick it is too, John.


The coaches are now more or less finished.





You can just see a passenger or two in the photos, there are actually a dozen seated between the two coaches but they take some spotting  :cry:  Hardly worth the bother really.

I've also picked out the handles and handrails with some brass coloured paint. The roofs aren't actually glued down yet, that's the next job.

They look a beautiful pair Nick and I've always been a shirt button fan. Well done for a well planned and executed project.

Bill :)

Bill / Terry

Thanks for the comments. These have been a very enjoyable build and something different to the usual detailing RTR or building kits as intended. I will now be looking through my books to see if the Ratio 4 wheelers could be used to cut and shut other coach diagrams.

Never thinking I would ever need such detailed reference books again, I gave away two large format volumes of GWR coaches, amongst others, some 30 years ago. As Capt. Mainwaring correctly said, 'Stupid Boy!'

Bill :(

To bring this thread to a close some photos of the completed Clifton Downs set with Bachmann Pannier 6401 making their debut on Much Murkle during testing prior to the Folkestone MRC Exhibition in two weeks time. Hopefully I can get a video of them in action at the exhibition.









:cheers
