Evening Guys, 

It's been a while. So, this morning I decided to ease myself back into the endless list of projects sitting on the bench, by putting this spare 071 body to good use. 

First, it was off with the 085 shell.

Then, on with the new underframe.

With the loco opened up, I placed a driver in the cab and also dug out a spare DCC sound decoder to fit.

Handrails went on next.

And then finally a little painting to finish off the smaller details.

085 is now 077.

Smashing work Jason good to see the workbench back in business.

Rich,

Cheers Rich. I made a promise to myself back in January to devote a little more time to the hobby. 4 months in and I've managed my first post of the year. At this rate, the next update should be around August :D

Came across this little gem from SSM while rummaging through some storage boxes a couple of days ago. 

I don't know how I managed it, but I noticed I hadn't added the day-glo stripes to the inside of the beams when working on the gates first time round. 59eb7fefb6e93_jasonpics252.jpg.5c837fc8df0c0332b327591ed4247372.thumb.jpg.5b0da2b1ec8e27031c15c2d906d11aa9.jpg

So, it was out with some paint and a very fine brush this morning. Unfortunately I didn't have the exact colour I used originally, but I think this adds to the look, as these were generally seen with varying shades over the years.

Reminds me of when I used to do a bit of work for a chap with a plant hire operation - one day a brand new bucket arrived for a Caterpillar.

The finish on every square millimetre of it was absolutely immaculate.

I don't think I would have been able to face just shoving it into the ground the first time.

It would be like taking a brand new Rolls Royce on the Dakar rally.

I picked up this 1:76 scale  about a year back. The colour was horrendous and needed sorting. So I went to work.

Wow Jason-  looks fantastic.   What did you use/ How did you do that?

I'm trying to source first, and then recreate something like, the container-lifter like used be in North Wall...

Rubbed everything down with the abrasive pen. Light coat of primer, then a couple of coats of yellow. Bucket, cab and exhaust were hand painted.Once dried, a wash and powders were applied. Sealed with Matt varnish.

Back to a project which I started way back in October 2018.

Ever since then, it's been a case of... Do a little, loose interest. Do a little, loose interest. Do a little... you get the idea. 

Anyway, here's my now weathered Bulk Cement wagons.

WOW beautiful work. =D

So how do you get that peeling cement look around the top? 

Cheers popeye. It's a combination of removing the paint and the powders after applying.Then airbrushing another colour on to build up the layers, and repeating the process. Its quite time consuming. I'm glad to see the back of them to be honest. This shot probably explains it better.

Small details like the two modern lamps and a screw link coupling really finish things off nicely.

They do David. As you say, they are small details, but they make such a big difference come the end.

Bloody amazing work. Folk may not realise the amount of time that went into such art work. Patience yielding sublime results. I see you put the kadee's in the NEM pockets.

👏
