Well back to the laminate build!

All soldering and gluing is now complete, a little painting prep now being done- I'm using Lidl W5 Limescale Remover to clean up the brass, it does a neat job removing oxidisation and flux. The first few panels of the roof have been brushed over with W5 with a paint brush and washed down with water- sparkly!

Absolutely Eoin'esque model engineering. :tumbsup: Stunning outcome. Agree it is the best brass work I have ever seen. Not an air gap, warp nor bend, nor a solder blob in sight. Stunningly precise and ultra neat work in a difficult medium. The home that coach is going to is going to be a very lucky bunny to have such a master piece and also one of Eoin's pieces of art. Looking forward to the painted end result although it almost seems a shame to paint it.

Jaw dropping pure magic Eoin. Continued congratulations on this piece of modelling magnificence. You are a true master of your craft and your work will justifiably sit happily alongside other wonderful masterpieces for the enjoyment of current generations and generations yet to come. .

Very well done indeed Eoin!

Rolling that roof to its precise profile and shape was some achievement and makes all the difference.

Pity the yoke beyond it didn;'t survive. If I remember, it was one of the last WLWR coaches to survive. Belturbet's 900 is the only one now, after their (derelict) Director's Saloon (934) was burned by scumbags at Mullingar about thirty years ago.
