Work continues at the painters.

Once the buffer beams are painted, the black areas of the smokebox, footplate etc can be done. Then they will start making the lining decals. these are designed from our AutoCad drawings to ensure accuracy. It's a lot of work for 140 models.

here the beams are painted before masking for the black areas.

splasher sides are painted and lined separately, this allows a clean finish behind pipe work etc These are just the right hand rear sides!  

beams now masked, ready for the black coat
