Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

Ghost ship

With the farting about, sorry, derailing, all done it was off to the paint shops. I had fitted the safety valve / top feed and also some half round plasticard for the feed pipe covers. I also fitted a set of smokebox door handles as the ones cast in white metal were awful.

As per usual the first layer of primer showed up all the things to tidy up.

I’ve masked a lot of it because my hope is that the original chassis colour can stay. Time will tell if this policy works.

The primer is white because it’s the primer for some Rover Brooklands Green which is a pretty close match for GWR green and is somewhat cheaper.

Having now officially reached middle age, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling, assisting the GWR 1014 County of Glamorgan project, and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
