Loco enters paint shop
My 'OO9' gauge narrow gauge colliery train is coming on nicely, having entered the paint shop this morning. The last few etched details were fixed in place last night and the model washed and left overnight to dry. A quick primer coat (quick-drying cellulose) was sprayed before breakfast and a few tiny blemishes were filled with Vallejo acrylic putty (another rapid-drying formula). After a few hours' rest, a coat of vaguely NCB style blue (Humbrol 104 enamel) was sprayed. Once the blue dries, I'll paint the roof, add a clear coat and some lining and detail touches.
Can't wait to get some 'OO9' track laid and get the little train running. The plan is to get the train finished in time for display on the Model Rail stand at Warley.
