Seeing Double

By way of a diversion from layout building or finishing anything else I've started I've been building a new loco. I say building but that is an exaggeration really as it is a Chris Ward 3D printed double Fairlie. It fits on a KATO shorty chassis and is fab. I've added some extra details and have started painting it, as usual I've used acrylics, in this case the main paintwork is Games Workshop snot green. An excellent name and an excellent colour.

 Here it is with the roof off, I may do a second one with the open cab like this but for now I want to make this one with a lid.

Added whitemetal parts are from the box of bits but the sand pots are Langley Fairlie ones and the reversing lever is a Wills signal box lever, Dundas vac pipes.

  1. Nice! It's got a definite look of 1970's Merddin about it.
