Well that did not take long, but only because it happened to be in the same album as something else I was already looking for!

that ex-works shine looks magic. Nice effort with the screwdriver too. I was wondering how you were going to do the door recesses.

Thanks Marty, Chris. Yep thats the loco although the roof is black where on mine I will be leaving the roof grey. For the other side im planning a different livery a heatherburn special so watch this space....

Today i've been helping out again and have come home with a bin bag full of off cuts of vinyl and diffrent thicknesses of foam board so expect some progress on potters lane shortly. ;-)

Dave your venture into vinyl is eye-opening stuff! You make it sound very easy, but I suspect it takes a lot of patience.
Very nice results!

Thanks Mike. Ok before I show off the new heatherburn livery first heres a couple of the compleated transpennine rake...





Right here we go the new 'heatherburn livery is.....




Basicly the livery is intercity with burgandy replacing the dark grey. I also did one car of my sprinter...





The sprinter uses a matt finish vinyl whilst the 47 has gloss...





The idea is to have a diffrent livery on either side of the train....










As a test to see how well the vinyl copes with curves I also pimped my scruffy 91...









 
Not sure of the 91 yet will get a better pic outside tomorrow allong with the 86 shell that I have also done.

Great colour combination Dave and I agree with HP, time to make your own railway company and logo's.

So what plans have you got for the 2 Thompsons then Dave is this a cut and shut or do you intend to purely upgrade them?

Ok here we go....

Coaches as bought...



These coaches are perfect for the conversion I have in mind as the bodysides are completely flat and the window frames are square.

First remove the roof by unscrewing the two screws then the bodysides drop out...



Remove the raised detail around the doors and cut a big hole at one end...



Glue some sheet behind the oval windows and door windows and then fill with miliput. For those that have never used miliput it looks like....



You just break off equal sized bits and then roll together untill all one colour. Top tip lick your finger then rub over the miliput to smoth it.

Next glue the bodysides in place and add some internal bracing....



The roof has to be completely scratchbuilt so I cut mine from a sheet of 5mm foamex board then shaped with a knife....



With the roof added and some mesh over the windows you get...







Should look the business with a coat of olive green!

The old electrification train!  Wonder if they may make a comeback now that the Great Western Main Line is to be electrified?  It was an amazing train to watch in work, with no safety bars and guys all standing on the roof of a moving train stringing the catenary up and fixing it in place as it went along.

Probably illegal now and yet I don't recall there every being any injuries!

For the second conversion I thought about somthing a bit different. Question..how do you work on the OHLE under a bridge?? The answer is to build one of these....

First cut down one end of the coach...



Using some 10mm foamex board build a deck and fit...







With the deck in place fit a new bulkhead....



Now a new roof.....





When attached to the rest of the train it looks like....



Still have to add handrails, lights and grills.

Dave

I hope when you have finished these you put them on the west coast minatures site as you may well find a number of people may well be prepared to pay hansomely for coaches like that

Managed to get hold of some yellow vinyl today that looks spot on for network rail so I thought about doing the kitmaster brake as a network rail test coach. What do you think??
