Hornby Railroad 9F ready for painting
Further to the previous post, my Tyne Dock-Consett 9F has received all of its detail upgrades and conversion parts and is ready for re-numbering and touch-up painting. Unsurprisingly, a typically weathered finish is also planned. I've chosen 92098 as my subject as that's the loco that I've been working from, photo-wise, with some great images found in various publications, especially Locomotives in Detail, No.7: Riddles Class 9F by David Clarke (Ian Allan, 2007. ISBN 07110 32467). The full conversion project will appear in Model Rail magazine, issue 177.
