Over the xmas break and early new year I have been working away on finishing off a few projects that have been kicking around my modelling boxes. One of these was another LMS CCT, a dia 1929 with windows. This model has had a long history, I reckon it has taken three years of very non-intensive work to finish it off!!
Finished LMS CCT. The underframe weathering can be seen to good effect in this picture.
Anyhow, with some modelmasters transfers and a good weathering job over a coat of BR faded blue, I am pretty happy with how this one turned out! As per normal all painting and weathering was carried out with an airbrush, fixing the decals with micro sol/set.
Side view of the CCT. The correct transfers were a bit of guess work....
So another one for the finished pile! More parcels stock for Charlton; one wonders just how much parcels traffic a small Devon terminus would generate - quite a lot judging by the number of wagons I have built!! Other projects are making good progress, with the sound fitted class 122 DMU and sound fitted class 22 nearing completion. A dance hall brake van is also nearing the transfers stage, so plenty of non layout progress at the moment.
