New Years Resolution…..

My New Years resolution is still holding firm with shelf queens being worked on and completed.

The next long time inhabitant of my work bench is the Connosseur LNER refrigerator van (Dec 2011). It has been painted for quite some time but I had misplaced the buffers!

Buffers found body weathered by Chris and chassis weathered by me – my very first attempt at weathering.

I had the figure lying about too, I seem to recall it coming with a brake van kit but I struggled to fit him appropriately until I spied the ladder and tried him for size. It does restrict what I ought to do with the wagon – i.e. have it sat stationary in a siding but as always rule one applies……

The bogie coal wagon is now drying after it’s trip through the Wakefield weathering workshop.
