This week I’ve spent some time sanding, respraying and repainting the body of my current loco build.
I feel the elbow grease has paid off and the loco is looking a lot better.
The livery is Citadel Warpstone Green acrylic. It’s a rather nice colour. I’d use it again.
I’ve added a whistle, a driver and a cab roof to the loco. I painted the driver in July last year and I’m happy to have found a loco for him. It’s a tight squeeze in the cab and he may be burning his knees against the firebox…..
These ‘spectacle plates’ came with the kit. They are transparent tubes, with a clear face and a rim at one end. The rim can be painted to represent the spectacle plate. The tubes slot into the holes in the cab. I believe these were designed by Chris Ward and they are a very clever idea. I wish other manufacturers made them.
But why do they make me think of Minions?
I like that green. I might have to go and find some. Hope all is well with you all. Hopefully not too long before we can meet again! David
Hi David, Yes, many of the Citadel colours are rather nice. All good here thanks. I hope you are staying safe and thriving. All the best Steve
