Completed Bolster Wagon

 This morning I added transfers, and weathered the bolster wagon, which now completes it. 😊

New Bolster Wagon

 Having added the missing detail this morning, this afternoon I painted the bolster wagon.



Just needs transfers tomorrow, after the paint has dried overnight.

Forgotten Detail

 I was just about to start painting the bolster wagon this morning, when I realised I had left some detailing off, so all cut and fixed on.




Another coat of primer applied.


 P.S. If no one reads this they won't even know!

2 More Broken Wagons Rebuilt

 Yesterday I added a roof to this box van, and left it overnight for the glue to set.



This morning I weathered it to finish it.

Yesterday I made a start on building a wagon from this long wheelbase chassis.


I made and added the baseplate to the chassis.
Hopefully it should look something like the photo behind it.

Today I continued with what will be a long wheelbase 1 plank bolster wagon by scoring the planks which form the base of the wagon.


Then I used emery paper to create wood graining effect.


Then I made the 2 sides and 2 ends.


Then glued them onto the base of the wagon.


Then created 3 bolsters from balsa wood, drilled them and cut and fitted the 6 posts into the bolsters.


Finally I spray primered it.

LMS Brake Coach

 This morning this LMS brake coach arrived, it now completes the breakdown train.

Apart from acting as a brake coach, they were used to transport the engineering staff.
