Maybe, maybe... A little to early to tell yet, perhaps things will become clearer when the windows start taking shape?JMORG wrote: ↑Mon Aug 24, 2020 2:44 pmIs this mystery carriage perhaps the... Uhhh... Boston Lodge mystery carriage?
It's taking a while, but I'm making some progress with FR Van 4, which now has look out duckets on both sides, and matchboarding on one...
I guess I'll carry on gradually working away at it over the winter with the aim of having it ready for spray painting when the weather warms up again in the spring...
Modern WHHR carriage 6 in the current livery. Was unsure at first how it would look but now I think it looks great.
Brake van (the unnumbered one) in both liveries! Both Jurassic
The NWNGR van next to the Jurassic and modified IP wagons.
Porthole Bug box 12.
Lineside Hut Oakeley quarries coal waggon. I've cut 5mm from the top and bottom to get it more to the correct height.
Lineside Hut Slate waggon; modified to look more like the Rhosydd quarry waggons. Note the differences between it and the Binnie behind.
I particularly like the WHR brake (I must get round to building one this winter!) and the "porthole" bugbox, a lovely looking carriage, I think. I wasn't too sure about the ("Prisoner" inspired, I think???) livery on the WHHR 4-wheeler either, but I agree, it looks great on your model.
I've been cracking on with some modelling myself recently, principally with another Phil Sharple kit, for an early FR coal wagon this time. I never seem able just to take a kit from the box and build it as per the instructions, and this one's been no exception... Firstly, I turned it inside out, so that the planking detail's on the inside - now stained with my usual vinegar and wire wool mixture. I've added new veneers of 0.5mm ply to represent the planking on the outside, which will enable me to sand back the paint for my favoured well-worn look. I've added a metal (well, plastic) plate over the curved buffer, and nail gem rivets over the etched ones on the strapping overlays. I think I'll put it all together and paint it next (although possibly not in that order), then I need to think about adding brake gear. Here it is so far:
