Work on the Hunslet is progressing and it has visited the paint shop.
The components were stuck together and held in place while the glue dried. I never thought a locomotive could look sorry for itself until I saw this one wrapped in elastic bands.
There was a small gap between the front of the body and the footplate that I filled with filler.
After a little sanding and repainting, it looked a lot better.
Now I need to repaint the footplate and frames, then I can varnish the Hunslet. Things are moving forward… slowly.
