Re: LMS D1735 Brake Third

The colour is Precision Leaking Oil! What I like about it is that it creates it's own shadow lines around the vents and rain strips. I think once some roof dirt is misted over and some weathering it will look quite nice or filthy.

Re: LMS D1735 Brake Third

Hi Paul. Yes I will dirty it all up when I do the weathering for the complete coach. It was just to get opinions on the colour.

Re: LMS D1735 Brake Third

Just a quickly {the bishop said to the actress} What do you think of the colour of this roof I've just sprayed. I quite like it but before I tell you what colour I used what does everyone else think.

Re: LMS D1735 Brake Third

Hi Mike. Here are a couple of images showing you how I fix the windows into place. Like I said this is the first coach kit I've done in many years so it's not neat and tidy as I would like. It didn't help me deciding to change direction and then change back but by then I had made up the basic coach ...

Re: 24 Tons of Box Vans

Gosh guys I'm blushing. Thanks very much for your kind comments. I thought I screwed the weathering up. When I first start the weathering process I use the air brush to apply the overall grime colours to tone down the fresh paint. Track grime/dirt for the underframe and roof dirt etc for the body. B...

24 Tons of Box Vans

Hi All, just finished off last years Christmas project a couple of BR 12 ton Vans. They are Parkside bodies on Rumney chassis. Great fun to build though I found the instructions a bit vague and disjointed in places. I was very impressed that once built they run without any need of adjustment. I was ...

Re: LMS D1735 Brake Third

Thanks Mike. The plastic what your are seeing around the windows is the internal lining for the coach sides. What I do is frame around the windows {except the droplights} and then glue thin plastic sheet over the entire side of the coach. You then cut away the plastic from the window openings. You t...

Re: Coach Seating

Hi Guy. If I had a brain I would be dangerous. LOL. Thankfully the coach I'm building is all 3rd class. I think I've got it sorted with the Ratio ones sorted now. I chopped off the top read rest and lowered the back of the seat by about 4mm and then reattached the head rest. This alone reduced the d...

Re: Coach Seating

Thanks Guy. I've spent the afternoon butchering the Ratio ones. First thing to do was reduce the height of them and then slim them down. If you say the Slater ones are fatter in the back cushion's they might not be any good. I'll slog away with the Ratio ones for this coach and get a pack of Slater ...

Hi All. Does anyone produce decent coach seating? I'm fitting out a coach using the the Ratio seating that is supplied with the Comet kit. Not over impressed with it and was wondering if there is anything else available.

Thanks Mike. Insanity runs deep in my family, I do these stupid things. LOL. This is one of the problems with the Pendleton/Mitchell bogies they are very open and so there's nothing to attach things to. I added the two bits of flat scrap brass to hang the safety loops to. There is also a larger safe...

LMS D1735 Brake Third

Hi All. I've been working on a Comet Kit of a LMS D1735 Brake Third. This is the first coach kit I've built for well over twenty years and it was a bit of a learning curve trying to remember how I used to build and improve the basic kit. One thing I did remember straight off was to replace the bogie...
