I had a mass painting session over the long weekend with quite few of my Slaters/Parkside wagons now ready for transfers.
I also did a bit more with the cab detail of Nellie and thought I would take a couple of photos as once it goes inside it won’t be possible to get the same angle shot again.
I have added a little more detail to the back head in the form of some gauge glasses made from strips of 1mm perspex and a couple of dials that I will attach to the cab front once stick it in to the cab. Plus a planked cab floor from coffee stirrers
My compressor made a bid for freedom and smashed itself to bits on the floor, so the painting of Nellie has stopped while the replacement arrives.
Nellie is as complete as I want her to be.
The last details added are Laurie Griffin LNER lamp irons and some nice cast brass vacuum pipes (not sure whose but they are nice).
I have added the rest of the detail to the back head and I also knocked up a brake standard from tube, washers, brass rod and a handrail knob. This is now drying, having been primed along with the crew. The chassis is also drying having been primed too.
I just need to see if my Maskol is still usable for the brass pipework on the back head and that will be primed too. The holes in the floor plate are for the crew and the brake standard once I have put down the wooden floor they will sit on top.
