37606 has received its decals and is ready for reassembly
After a few days painting the various colour elements and a deep, glossy varnish coating, the DRS decals have been applied. Fox Transfers numbers have been augmented by original style logos from Lancaster City Models (the only transfer maker with a licence agreement with DRS). The transfers performed faultlessly and really look the part. The model has now been varnished again, this time with a satin sheen, and will be left for 48hrs before putting the model back together again. I'm looking forward to adding the weathering and final touches.
Unbelievably, it's the Warley show this weekend (how quickly it comes around every year), so we'll be heading off to the NEC tomorrow to set up the Model Rail stand and brace ourselves for the onslaught of Saturday morning. Hopefully, I'll get to have a look around this year - last time I only saw the MR stand and the loos, with very little in between! Maybe see you there? We're at stand B19 in Hall 5, with plenty of special offers on limited edition models and other goodies.
