Decided to have ago at adding some detail to the lima deltic this was bought off Ebay last year as Meld in two tone green then decided tolook for a new body shell and found a brand new shell in blue as St Paddy 55001 I didn,t use any bought parts the hand rails were fashioned by me and that was the hardest part to do , I blackened the wheels painted the walls white and added flush glazing and painted the front end It,s not perfect but I think it looks good just got the other end to do !!

I'm no expert when it comes to Deltics but that looks pretty good to me. Doing all those handrails and getting them to all be the same can be a right royal pain - I did two SR brake vans from Cambrian Kits with six handrails per side!

To my "untrained in all things diesel", GWR eyes that looks a good job Brian.

Just one criticism   ...   You say it was two tone green and you have changed it to blue :shock::shock::shock: As I've said before:-



Blue deisels my ar*e !!! :lol::lol::lol::lol:


Chris T would call it "proper " though.  :thumbs:thumbs

Good idea to try weathering on a old wagon first, but weathering a loco, makes a huge difference to the overall look at the end of the day.
Looking forward to seeing the class 47 worked on :thumbs

Thanks, guyz.  Should have weathered them, though.  Funny story about the PB.  My friend, Jack, gave me the shell.  It cost me $100 to buy the chassis and running gear and $200 for a decoder.  Not bad for a "freebie."

It may not be a colour like or dislike thing. To many of us who were around when diesels started taking over from steam loco's, if they had just one redeeming feature it was that they were at least the same colour as steam locos. (Honorary steam engines if you like :roll:). When they painted them blue they severed that link and they then became something completely different. Having said that when fresh out of the works in pristine blue I thought they looked OK but the blue they chose seemed to look really drab when dirty, and they were often dirty, hence some people couldn't take to them. So Brian, please dont dirty your Deltic.

Les,

I agree that in the worst of conditions the blue, especially the early matt version (airless spray finish), could look extremely drab. I also agree that when fresh from the works and in full sunshine the BR blue could look very smart indeed.

Also, some of the Southern EMUs looked rather better in blue and grey than they did in BR green or plain BR blue.

Also, I should point out that even steam engines were blue sometimes: BR chose blue with white/black/white for the class 8 express locos and the Caledonian Railway had a rather attractive shade of blue, so not all blues are bad, nor are they all associated only with diesels.

In my opinion, the Merchant Navies (in original condition) looked superb in the BR blue with lining.

 

:cheers
