ViTrains Class 47 unearthed.
Rooting through some boxes in the attic I came across a ViTrains Class 47 that I'd forgotten all about. It had been packed away for use as a demo piece in one of my airbrushing courses, but obviously got misplaced when we moved house last year. Anyway, it was a jolly nice surprise to see it again and I decided to throw some weathering paints, washes and pigments at it over the weekend.
As with the Bachmann Class 25s I treated the other week, this is another model that is crying out for a pack of replacement Laserglaze, so I think I'd better draw up a shopping list for the next time I pass the Shawplan stall at an exhibition!
I know that the Bachmann 47 is very nice, but I do like the ViTrains version, especially once it has been detailed and weathered. Such a shame that it has been out of production for a while.
