Grand Hibernian - Respray opportunity for someone....

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just saw the Belmond Grand Hibernian in Galway this week. Impressive looking train -

.

 

Great to see that not all of the MK3s ended up on scrap heap after all and are back in service in all their glory. I lamented the awful footage on YouTube of them being ripped apart.

We have some added variety on our rails now thankfully.

 

There's definitely a nice re-spray opportunity here for someone to take up!

Gents, I have nickle silver etches available to do the ventilated windows, nameplates, celtic motif and to kitbash the observation carriage rear windows, as well as a decal pack for the other detail. 

Drop me a line if interested.

IMHO the BGH livery is quite bland and rather dull looking. Even some delicate horizontal lining could have made it more visually appealing.

Yes superb etches. BGH not my sort of thing either but these could tempt me. I'd have to modify the livery though with some fine gold or grey horizontal lining below the windows.  IMHO In real life the BGH livery seems rather plain. 

Ps. Des any update on your BCK GSV etched sides (i.e. 3173).

Noel, still being worked on, but the "Real Job" has seriously eaten into down time.  I'll keep you updated.
