Very nice looking model, I like the finish, it's hard to replicate convincingly.
Thank you. I'm still not entirely convinced about the base colour, but I am reasonably happy with the attempts at layers of rust and dirt.
When I get round to building the second one of the pair, I might assume it's been freshly repainted.

Did the LNER continue to use Oxford Blue up till 1940 or so?

Love that bridge - superb, and very inspiring :D (as is the snowplough too!)

I wasn't there (!) but the impression I have formed from the limited colour photographic evidence is that existing stocks of supplies at outbreak of war were sensibly used until finished.

My railway is making progress, but I've been a bit distracted of late preparing for ....this.....

If you do visit Locomotion when I'm doing these (on the 26th July and 1st and 8th August) do make yourself known!
(Preferably politely!)

I'm a bit fed up with railway wiring, so need to work on something more interesting now!

More posts in due course!

It would be good if you could get some nice detailed photos. I saw FS at the NRM earlier in the year (after meeting you at Shildon) and it was not very accessible.

I will try. There will be some days when the locomotive will be standing on the apron, rather than alongside the platform or running (short) trains.
Was there any particular feature you wanted to see?

Not particularly. It is one of those situations when you never know if a photograph is going to prove useful or not. A bit like I did for Green Arrow.
