Still in primer, but I think I shall keep it in grey. Had to paint the smokebox, wish I hadn't! But I needed to know what it would look like. Details next :-) but I don't think I shall take it much further, apart from DCC.,,[attachment=:name]

Mike, did you say the front buffer plate and curved supports were made of styrene? Wonderful stuff indeed. Great to see more high quality kettles on IRM.=D

Glenderg;sorry I have not replied sooner but this pensioner has been boosting his spending power;more trucking!! thought I had seen the last of the bloody things.

The front buffer plank and footplate back to a line level with the front of the smokebox saddle are from a Dapol Prairie tank. I cut the tapered frame pieces from plasticard. If you look at the earlier blog you can see the additions as they are white or any other colour but black!

The plastic that Bachmann use is very soft and marks easily. I had"nt realized this till I took the photos, so there are bits I shall work on again. The major problem for me Is the Chimney and smokebox door as neither look very Inchicore.
