Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Metropolitan Tank-finale

Below are two pictures of the finished model. It is painted in the late Beattie livery, used between1874 and 1878, of Purple Brown. The boiler bands are homemade transfers with black and white lining. The lining on the tank sides was scribed through the top layer of paint to expose the undercoat which gives a reasonable representation of the fine lines involved.
