NETWORK RAIL CLASS 150 UPDATE
So far, it's been a joy to fit the various bits of brass and, once the painting's over with, the small cameras and equipment boxes can be built-up and fitted to the cabs. Things are getting a little 'tight', however, as press day is not too far away and I do hate to rush...
A few coats of Alclad grey primer have so far been added to the modified bodyshells, which helps to reveal any areas that need remedial work with filler and abrasive paper. Building up the coats in very thin layers prevents the delicate details from being swamped by the paint.
Also on the go concurrently is a Bachmann 2-car Turbostar that has been completely stripped and rebuilt due to 'accident damage'. It used to be in Porterbrook white/purple (as featured in Model Rail a few years back) before it's misadventure, but will soon be transformed into a fictional livery.
