Railroad 31 ready for the paint shop
After fettling the bufferbeam cowlings, the various pipes and hoses have been added and buffers permanently fixed, complete with little tread-plate footsteps! All final body details have been added and the model has now entered the paint shop and received a white priming coat. I'm happy with how it's going (touch wood) and can't wait to get the BR colours on. I had plans for a very intricate weathering job but, with only a week or so left before the deadline, I might have to keep things brief... the perils of having a few weeks on holiday - I'm having to catch up quickly!
