Thanks for the kind comments, Gents.
Morgan. The hand rails will be fitted before painting, but the smoke deflectors are intended to be attached by clips over the hand rails and two bolts through the footplate, so they can be loose for painting.
Terry. Other than the smoke deflectors, the body will be in one piece. The friend who is going to paint, line and weather the loco has advised that he's happy with this arrangement. The chassis, which I will paint, can be completely dismantled for this purpose (and future maintenance).
Dave.

If it’s OK with Dave, I can post the painting, lining and weathering of the Scot on this thread. I have previously painted a few of Dave's locos including an Ivatt Class 2 ( photo attached). I have also already painted a re built Scot which is a Brassmaster kit which I bought fully built in P4 but it was painted in 1947 LMS livery so it was stripped and then re painted it, lined it and renumbered as 46148 ( a loco I was pulled by in the 1960s). A light weathering finished it of.

Progress remains slow - I'm sure that was a snail just overtaking - but there is some.
The smokebox door and boiler hand rails are now fixed. When processing the photos, I noticed that the top lamp iron had got bent - probably when I knocked the loco off the work tray into my lap this morning. I caught the loco between my knees on its way to the floor, so it was nearly a catastrophe. A bent lamp iron is a small price to pay. It has now been straightened out.

Outside steam pipe covers, front vacuum stand pipe and some bits on the rear beam still to do.

I'm glad it's not just me that has clumsy moments Dave. The Scot is looking great.

I would certainly find that very interesting and helpful, as you say as long as Dave is happy. Your painting and weathering skills are quite exquisite!

Those last pictures look absolutely superb Dave. So glad you caught that beauty in time!

Why not just start a new topic in this section, https://www.scalefour.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=17, where it belongs. Using the correct subforum helps others to find it, in the future.
