Jumbo progress.

After the Jumbo had been primed and minor flaws attended to, I applied the first coats of utilitarian black paint. I now realise I haven’t attached the tender rear handrails as yet but apart from lamp irons and cab doors which I shall fabricate from plastic, the loco is essentially complete as far as the superstructure goes.
I now need to turn my attention to the replacement stainless steel coupling rods and brake-gear as well as attending to the electrical side. While I deal with those aspects, I’ll hold fire on the final numbering, weathering etc.
Meanwhile, here she is outside works in daylight for the first time. I’ll spare you the habitual ‘laundry shot’ this time!




Well, almost!
That insulator in the background is genuine Waverley Route, by the way!


About maxstafford60093

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!
