More progress on the O9 pug conversion this week.
I’ve applied some lining to the loco.
The hardest part of the process was plucking up the courage to do it. I was thinking:
‘I like the loco as it is, what if I mess it up ?’
My solution was thorough preparation. On my work bench I organised four different types of tweezers, several craft knives, a pair of fine scissors, some tissue, cotton buds, brushes in a variety of shapes and sizes, a ruler, little pieces of cardboard to use as spacers…
With every eventuality covered, I started.
When I applied the decals I found all I really needed was a cheap pair of tweezers, a fine brush and the occasional prod from a finger.
I’m quite pleased with the job. Plus, I haven’t ruined the loco 🙂
