Making a start

Well it's been a long time coming, but yesterday I made a start on the rolling stock. I picked up this van at the local market in Machynlleth earlier this year. Last night I pulled off the continental couplings and treated it to some mild weathering.

There's more work to be done; fitting three link couplings will be a bit of a fiddle and I need to do something with the aggressively textured roof, but all told I'm very happy with my ten minutes spoldging paint around.


  1. Always an inspiration and a pleasure to see your modelling
