I forgot this is a commission.  Best to stay within the scope of the agreement then.

The 52' BG is now complete and just needs the roof fastening down. 

I will have it with me on the Saturday at Telford should anyone like to see it in the flesh.

The all 3rd has been progressing too,  we now have passengers and a start on the paint work - the plan is to print our some partition tops with carriage prints and possible the mirrors in place, Similar to those that John did - I may end up with plan B for the mirrors which would be to use the Cameo to cut them from foil.

Picking up after Guildex and despite going out to play at Locomotion on both Saturday PM and sunday AM I managed to get a fair bit further on the All 3rd

A weekend in, spent modelling has seen the All 3rd well on it's way to completion. I even managed to do a bit more on my own non corridor parcels van. Progress on the latter included ripping off the dynamo to make up more prototypical hanging frame similar to Don's BG and All 3rd
      All that's left to do (unless I find something else is fit the turnbuckles and trussing and the vacuum and steam heat pipes before it hit's the paint shop in anger

By gum that is looking good.  I assume you're using JLTRT parts.  My eye is drawn to the two tanks.  Are these accumulators associated with brakes?

I'm running out of wagon kits, so I'll have to get back to the coaches soon.  Good that you're lighting the way.

Hi John,
Yes, the Queen posts and turnbuckles are JLRT,  the dynamo is Kirk/scratch built as are the vacuum tanks (brass tube and scrap etch). You are right in your assumption :doublethumb they are for the braking system.

Having got Don's All 3rd well on it's way and despite spending quite a bit of Saturday stripping off the roof canvas and filling in the holes for the wrongly placed roof vents with stubbs of styrene rod. I also managed to do a bit more at my stalled Kirk parcels van. my last job the previous weekend was to break off the dynamo which in my earlier builds I had stuck onto a fabricated I beam. Now that I have done a more realistic job for Don's coaches it seemed only fair to do the same for me so I knocked up the mounting brackets and stuck them on.



This is Don's roof awaiting the roof vents mounting in the right place,  just perched on my parcels van for the moment. I managed to rescue the destination board brackets and reinstate them on the new re-canvassed roof.




  
It's also now sporting hinges and door handles etc.

Somewhat embarrassingly, I have had a JLRT Gresley Diagram 113 full brake sat on the edge of my workbench for the last couple of years. it had stalled at the final fitting of the roof stage.
On Sunday morning Chris asked me if I was ever going to finish it (it was a Christmas gift from her) So late morning I got stuck into fitting the roof and by the end of the day I had not only fitted the roof I had added most of the underframe fittings too - I had prepared the buffer beams a couple of years ago.

So here it is sat on a pair of borrowed bogie - I put the original Gresley bogies supplied under my first Kirk Parcels van build - I have a pair of Newbould Models 8.0' Fox to go under this but they need making up.









I hope to make more rapid progress on this going forward....

Thanks Mike,
I hadn't noticed you were a member until spying the Wallows this morning - I must have been blind....

One of the jobs that I did over the last week was to knock up some partition details for the All 3rd. 

The carriage prints are Chris's paintings shrunk to fit and the mirrors are also one of Chris's ideas. 

I had tried to print them using a grey but they didn't come out that well. The next thought was to use baking foil cut on the Silhouette but my concern was that they would damage easily while removing them from the cutting mat.  Chris suggested that I try the foil lined plastic sachets that family sized pack of nuts come in. 

She duly cut one up and gave it a wash (this is from a bag of Cashew Nuts, other nuts are available of course). 

I quick visit to Inkscape drew me some circles and ovals (I need ovals for my D114 when I get to it).

It almost took more time sticking the two small sheets of plastic to the cutting mat than it did to cut them out - a single cut with the blade set at 1 was enough.



Not the best photo in the word but you get the idea



A better idea when they were removed from the mat




They look the part when attached to the partition - the printed efforts gave a location point if nothing else




A couple more for the carriage ends.

Great work Rob!  More adaptation of everyday objects - super.  It's nice to have a source of railway paintings to put in your compartments.

Thanks John, 

Having access to the paintings sure makes life easier.

At the beginning of each session on the B16 recently I have sprayed the All 3rd in either Carmine, matt varnish or lastly masked up and sprayed the black.







The paints were both from the Vallejo Model colour range - Carmine and Black. The varnish used was Ronseal water based let down with Vallejo thinners.

I also made a start on adding the teak varnish to my Kirk Parcels van.










Again the finish is Vallejo Model Colour Orange covered by (so far) 7 coats of Ronseal waterbased Teak varnish applied by brush so not let down.

Thanks John,

It doesn't really show up too well in the photos but the gloss has a really deep shine to it.


All I need to do now is confirm when they started painting the ends black on non corridor stock.

Although I have been concentrating on the B16 I have done a little on the All 3rd by picking out the handles in brass.


I popped all the bits together to see how it looked - it's still just plonked on the bogies with the roof just resting in place.











I hope that I might get the transfers on this weekend.
