Austrain's 442s1

Hi Guy's

Just a quick one. I just finished off weathering and detailing an Austrain's 442s1. There wasn't a lot to do but with a little bit of work it finished up to be a nice looking loco.

 
The detail work that was needed was the detailing of the bogies with Kerroby Models Loco steps and Brake Cylinders. I used an ILM's Pilot infill kits to mound the KD's and also added a little bit of styrene around the Coupler pockets. I added Brass Air Horns and Air Hoses. These were Mains West Detailing parts. I also added new MU plugs and the 3rd Dummy Plug. These was Brass parts from Mains West as well. Other than Weathering the only Paint work was correcting the blue lines on the Pilots. The model was wrong with the lines being straight. They are curved and follow the lines on the nose.
 
Standing with one straight out of the box
 
I enjoy weathering paint schemes such as these.
 
Anyway that is 442s1 ready for service
 
Cheers Justin Moy
