About Me

My photo
When i left school back then i was lucky enough to enroll on an engineering apprenticeship. I think this lead me in good stead. I was always one of those children that pulled things apart but actually put them back together again. My first engine given to me at the age of Seven, a Triang Princess Elizabeth. The rest as they say is History. Later in life i got back in to Model Railways and started building Pine Road. This could lead anywhere so i hope you enjoy my Blog.

CCT Van painted

An update on the CCT van. It is now painted.

Hornby CCT van

We have gone from an LMS livery to good old BR blue
A slightly unorthodox way of painting this.
Thought i would try the "Hairspray" method.

I was trying to get that faded blue effect, so a quick rub down, a coat of primer then a thin spray over of white, a quick brush over with your wife's firm hold cheapy hairspray. Let dry for a good few hour's and then a coat of BR blue. Leave for another good few hours.

 A cotton bud, a blunt cocktail stick and some Tcut very gently rub away and this is the result.

I'm rather pleased with it.

Just need transfers and a coat of Matt varnish and we are sorted.

Happy Days
