HORNBY 'BLACK FIVE' 2
Model receives it's new identity.
With most of the detailing work out of the way, my Hornby 'Black Five' has gained a new set of numbers and BR crests, courtesy of Fox Transfers. Taking on the guise of 45447, a loco that worked out of Rose Grove shed in 1968, right the way through to August, it seemed like an ideal subject for the end-of-steam anniversary theme.
A full demo of the detailing work will appear in issue 251 of Model Rail magazine, on sale 2nd August. Also, you may want to check out Steam Railway magazine's new special publication, Fifty Glorious Years - a lavishly-illustrated look at the twilight of BR steam and the birth of the preservation movement.
