Pickersgill Update No2

At last, an update on progress with the Pickersgill 4-4-0!
I’ve been somewhat busy with other things of late and energy has been a little sapped by the continually evolving cold that has been my constant companion from late January!
However, we have now progressed to the lining stage on this model. I have used Fox BR mixed traffic lining in this case and though the layered system they use is more complex than most, it isn’t difficult to use on the whole. The only awkward parts of the job are the non standard sections of the cab lining and working out which radius you need for the curves on the splashers. If anybody knows a more accurate way of determining this I’d be grateful if they shared it with me! 😊
I’ve made a start on the other side now so completion edges closer.
Just in time for some seismic changes in my modelling.
More about those in another entry; I’ll be putting a lot more up here over the weekend!
