I have certainly spent a lot of time on this Loco and truth be told it has drained my confidence a bit. Anyway I masked the roof and the chassis/bogies off and loaded the Airbrush up with ‘true’ BR Blue not that horrible faded stuff. I then sprayed over the light blue that was not covered by weathering, I think I should have done this earlier rather than try and weather it away, but we all have to learn the hard way. After spraying the real BR Blue I cleaned all bits of overspray away.
Well here you are a few photos, am I happy, probably not, but it is certainly better than it was.
The first photo is a ‘before’ and the next four are ‘after’.
