Had an unexpected hour in the shed this afternoon, in the main I did some sanding, filling and tidying of what has already been done. Added the lights on the bottom of the cab front. I then decided a quick coat of primer would help make the bits that need filling stand out, it did !!! I did manage to get these 4 pictures without showing two many marks that need further sanding and filling...

Incredible speed that this loco is taking shape. I have to say it looks really very very good as well. It will look superb when painted and all the detail is added.

thanks for the comments :)

First up a picture of the underside, showing the large under cab holes to get the cab details and glazing through. Also visible, the motor batteries in the fuel tank, on/off switch terminals to connect the motor bogie to and just in front of the fuel tank the headphone plug that the mp3 player locates on.



I guess it doesn't make interesting reading or viewing at this point as most of what has been done is fill, sand , prime repeated to try and improve the finish. Oh and some black on the frames.









There will be a video to follow later

Thankyou :)

I have been trying to work out how to make the circular fan cover for the roof,



In the end I couldn't come up with a clever plan so had to resort to cutting and filling it out of a piece of 60thou plasticard. I marked it out, drilled holes, then opened them up with a square needle file :( an hour of filling later I had a grid pattern and I just needed to cut off the outside to make it circular. Then glue on. I must be mad ??



I did have plans to cut out under the grill but decided it was far to fragile to be self supporting as a grill so I guess I will cheat and paint it black between the vents ! Not sure it would have been good to have a big hole in the top if it ever got caught running out in rain !

The only other thing happening is sanding and filling ! Every time I think I have got it right I give it a light dusting with primer and find a lump or hole i have missed !!! But there are less now than there was !

These last couple of shots have the OO Bachmann 25 riding piggy pack to answer a couple of people question as to just how big this is..

John that looks fantastic! Now that the bogies have been painted it's starting to look more like a model and less toy like. Have you decided on the livery yet ? With regards to the grill remember the mesh that I used on my signal gantry in the garden ? I used some car body repair mesh that was slightly overscale for 00 but would be fine for 'bigger stuff'! Also have a look out for a pan splatter cover as they can be picked up cheeply or even a tea strainer. :thumbs

That looks the absolute business John. Cracking piece of work. I'm not a Crompton expert but it certainly looks pretty convincing to me.

Cheers
Dave

One can of rail match the arrows, well you didn't expect me to pay ?? printed on paper and glued on then lacquered over.

Painted in the sun







back in the shed for some handrails and weathering, sorry if you like clean diesels, I like mine Used :)

I guess cab and buffer beam details are next, then when the paint it a bit tougher glazing and other small details.

John

I mentioned it earlier in this thread you are missing a great marketting oppurtunity for yourself here.

Post this finished model on some garden railway or G scale forums im sure interest will come your way all you need to do is find a suitable chassis to put your class 25 body on perhaps an aristo ub9 or something you would have a model that people would pay a great deal of money for.

Bear in mind an Aristo class 66 sells discounted around £400+ and thats a mass produced item your are talking custom built here so the price expected to pay would be a lot higher.
