LMS COACH PROGRESS
Bodyshell complete and ready for the paint shop.
Further to the previous post, the Palatine Models chassis is now adorned with a super-detailed Dapol LMS brake 3rd body. The sides have been left bare for now - no door handles or grab rails - as these will be installed after painting and lining-out, so they don't get in the way. Just about to spray the primer coats and, while the body dries, I'd better get to work on the interior.
Can't wait to see how the model looks after the BR maroon livery has been applied. Looks like I'll be using acrylics for the paint job, as time is running out - no luxury of waiting for a day or two in between layers of paint, as would be the case with enamels. But will I be able to achieve that lovely deep lustre of steam age coaching stock? We'll see...
