Today I painted the footplate tops, cab roof, smokebox and tender top with matt black with the airbrush (Tamiya Flat Black), the buffer beams were painted with a vermillion shade and weathered slightly (more to come). Tender axle boxes / springs painted (end covers remain as body colour) Now need to affix number plates/builder plates, paint chassis again / brakes and wheels (also need to get transfers for the tender) Other touch up etc to come.

It will look great when you get the "L.N.E.R." logo on the tender Darren ............:thumbs:thumbs

A really superb paint job.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone.

I put on the number plates and maker plates (with superglue) and painted the wheels (after much masking! - see the second photo...lesson learned there re painting wheels first before final assembly...) Now I need to order the HR transfers for the tender.

Still need to finish repainting chassis and paint brake blocks (driving rods stay as polished)

Petermac,
             Now we all know that the LNER is the railway of YOUR choice,but please let Darren put the correct Highland Railway letters on his tender!!! I wonder where you've got this reputation from about being confused??
:mutley
:cheersI hope you've not been overdoing the RLW!!(I'm going to need you sober to do your loco improvement.)

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs

Couldn't sleep, so wandered onto the site to pass the time with a very early morning cuppa.  I'm pleased to say I had my back op a week ago and it was a resounding success, but I'm currently weaning myself off the large doses of morphine I have enjoyed for the last 6 months and it really does screw up your sleep pattern.

Thank you so much for a very enjoyable thread Darren.  I have just spent the best part of an hour taking in every word and enjoying seeing this beautiful loco taking shape.  I salute you Darren, for some wonderful work.  It's great to see an unusual prototype...

I have never wandered into the mysterious world of loco/chassis building but have a Comet B1 chassis sat in front of me, where it has been in it's original packing for the last few weeks.  I'm starting to feel much more positive about 2011 and may well delve into the box in the coming weeks.  I hope you don't mind but I may well tap your brains at that time Darren as I'm sure your advice will prove invaluable.

Many thanks for an excellent article...:cheers

I am very pleased to hear your on the mend!

Re loco construction I have to recommend the Tony Wright Videos as these certainly gave me confidence, I also read the Iain Rice Books on Loco Chassis & Body Construction - this may also be helpful in easing you back in (the videos can also be quite soothing with Tony's quirky style and I have fallen asleep watching them!)

Please feel free to ask away, it would be my pleasure to share the things learned by trial and error!
