Metal bodyshell complete and ready for painting
Here are some images of the completed PH Design kit of a 4-wheel industrial diesel loco. Sitting on a slightly modified Hornby Class 06 chassis, it has been pootling about my test track to check on everything before being readied for a coat of primer. For two days' work, the bodyshell proved a joy to build, with loads of detail and everything slotted together well. As I said in the last post, a full demo will appear in Model Rail issue 180. Talking of which, issue 179 has been hitting the doormats of subscribers since Monday and is in the shops now, complete with the free Workbench Manual No.5 booklet. Don't miss it!
