Hornby 0-4-0ST finished and ready for work.As mentioned previously, some quick detail upgrades were recently visited upon this humble L&Y 'Pug' as a prelude to a weathering job. The loco is now complete and ready to start work shunting the sidings of Maudetown Colliery. The weathering consisted of hand-applied Lifecolor acrylic paints and powders - no airbrush work at all. And it took me about two hours, making three hours in all for the detailing and finishing. Not bad!
There's much more I could've done, especially replacing those huge moulded lubricator reservoirs on the front of the smokebox, and I'd like to upgrade the wheels at some point. But I'll make do for now.
