The little Ruston is finished. I went for green in the end and then added a considerable quantity of weathering. In the flesh the little chap looks great, in the photos slightly less good. The whole loco is smaller than an FR 2 ton slate wagon so blown up in a picture covering a whole PC screen is a little cruel to my workmanship.
The only thing I will change is that the KATO wheels are very bright, this really shows up with a more ground level picture.
It also shows that the wheelbase is ever so slightly too long. I'll add some dark paint to the centers and hopefully that will improve matters.
Sitting next to Syd the Ruston looks tiny.
