I wasn’t keen on the dummy cut-off centre wheels that came with the kit so I removed the “pinpoints” from some 14mm dia. wheels and fitted them to a scratch-built (from plasticard) “caddy”.  This allows the centre wheel to move transversely and the wagon happily negotiated 3rd radius curves.

Darius, such high quality models and your output is staggering! I think you need to sit on the beach with an ice cream or you may have to buy all of our kit stashes to keep going!! Inspirational modelling.  😎

Britannia Pacific Gatwick Express GLV with additional brass rod cab front pipework and MJT fuse boxes added by me.  Also repainted the cab front hosiery, replaced the chunky tension lock couplings with thinner NEM types and weathered the chassis.

1 hour ago, DJ Dangerous said:

How did you make the decals?

Hi DJ,

I printed them onto clear decal paper on a laserjet printer.

I managed to get the British Rail font files several years ago.

Cheers
