Jumbo nears the finish line.



Structural work is largely complete on the Jumbo now and attention turns to the cosmetic. The last two evenings have been spent applying Archers rivets in the approximate arrangement seen on these machines. The vac pipes have been fitted and numbers/crests applied. I have also glued paper punch bosses onto the axle nuts which vastly improves the appearance along with some paint applied.
The real magic is yet to come as I wield the airbrush and other media to bring this wee beastie to life proper over the next few days.
Stay tuned!

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!
