The O gauge Peco crane kit mentioned previously has been painted and is ready for the cable and hook to be fitted before siting on the diorama. The paint finish is a bit rough and ready, being wholly airbrushed using a variety of 'dirty' shades of acrylic. I'll be touching in a few bits by hand once the assembly is complete, but nothing too fancy. I'm aiming for the look of a machine that hasn't seen regular use or maintenance for a while.
Also over the weekend, a couple of 7mm wagon kits have progressed well, plus a few OO projects, including baseboard construction for Maudetown Colliery's extension - more will follow on these projects during the week.
