Haven't got much to report ATM. Having the Kid's on School Holidays slows the Modelling down a little. I have been preparing some stuff for the Paint Shops.
One I have been working on is a Trainorama NVMF Brakevan. I have 2 of them here and although they are not in my era, I don't mind a Brakevan or 5. I am going to DCC a loco, most likely a 49 class or a 44 class so I can go in and run on the Clubs Large DCC Layout. For operation purposes I will run an early 80's era so I can run brakevans.
This NVMF featured in the following photographs has had a little bit of work in readiness for weathering. I have replaced 2 windows that for some reason Trainorama provided with frosting. I haven't seen any photo's of a Van like this so the windows had to go. I am not 100% happy with the job I did on theses but these photo's show the model much larger than it is. I have painted the buff line at the roof line as most photo's I have show this painted. I have also added a number of patches on the roof as seen on many vans near the end of their working lives. Normally I would replace the Bogies with ones from the AR Kits range but I don't mind the extra detail on these ones and they look real good with P88 SEM wheels added.
