May 2009 Managed to finish three projects this month, in addition to an FGW Gronk, below.
"Royal" EWS Class 67, adapted from the Hornby model, with nameplates and Royal plaques from Shawplan and full bufferbeam detail fitted. I've also added an Express Models lighting kit.
The underframe was adapted by cutting apart the tanks/battery boxes and adding new compressors, see below, I think it makes a huge improvement to the model.
Again, from a Hornby model, a Class 60 this time, 60006 in Corus silver. Quite heavily weathered, as per the prototype in photos I've seen. I've added some blinds to the front window.
Finally a commissioned model, 57006 in Advenza colours, this time from a Bachmann model,

I was recently invited by EWS/DB Schenker to produce a model of 66152, recently re-liveried into DB Schenker red...
