Looks just like the real thing Alan :thumbs - particularly that mucky front end.  Also, the rust around th doors etc. looks extremely effective.

Small amount of work carried out tonight, adding some new vacuum pipes and also the new air horns, Don't know if these are needed but They have been done, and after they have been painted I really don't think you will see the difference

A photo to show how the loco is looking at the moment, it is just waiting for the last few little jobs, and then the dirty coat from the air brush, I know that I said that this would be painted only, but I have decided to finish it like the rest of our weathered stock.

Regional Railways should be ashamed.  Mind you, some of our AN locos look as bad - or worse.  Nice job.  Very convincing.

Update on the Weathering of the Class 37 No 37429

I have finished the last job, which was a spraying of the dirty grim colour that I put on a the last top coat, the only job that needs doing is a little clean of the windows !!
Photo's show on workbench and also on the layout, with this also finished, it clears the way to start Chris's wagons !!

All comments are always enjoyed, and if you think I have missed something or something can be added to improve the loco, please fire away









This last image showing both the wagon and the 37 together on the layout, hopefully looking the part !

I like it a lot. The wiped window made me smile :cool:
Can you get some similar clear areas for the wipers? Or are there no wipers?

Mike

I must have put this in the wrong thread, Alan.  I was suggesting you stick a wiper wipe shap cut out of masking tape, on the window glass before you paint it . . .
