LNER Dia 172 Van

Postby iak » Fri Oct 19, 2018 2:16 pm

This van has been on the go for sometime. Essentially, it is another item of stock that got lost in the fog of all my health problems. Now it is nearing the finishing line as fresh impetus enriches the muse with my modelling.

Destined for an Engineering Trip Take on Mostyn, the fading, dog-eared paint job hopefully reflects the rundown, battered nature of such stock in the late 1970's.

My thanks to Richard Oldfield for finishing off the lettering on this beastie - my brain could not cope with anymore yesterday! :?
Maybe just a coat of Dullcote to put the cherry on?
