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
