7 Locos in 7MM in 7 days !

Over the last three weeks or so I have been detailing and numbering seven Class 37’s. Over the next seven days I intend to publish a photo of one loco per day.

The first Loco is 37402 Stephen Middlemore in Large Logo livery. I have brought it right up to date in every way I can, but did not fill in the bodyside window modification as recently done by DRS. I was very unhappy with Heljans latest DRS Multi Working attempt, so I have made my own variety out of odd transfers, not perfect but will do until someone does better. The buffers are also incorrect for current 37’s and again would be replaced if/when possible.

I purchased some extra lamp irons so that I could model with the correct pattern for each Loco. These cost £2 each via Gaugemaster, Heljans UK spares partner, I can only say — What a rip off – £2 for something that probably costs 5p to make is disgusting.

I have added the correct form of cant rail stripe, the correct O/H warning signs, the Door kicker plates, The MW sockets and all the little signs that now appear under the sand boxes and fire alarm boxes. Heljans add-on items were also added to the buffer beam.

The Nameplates are Fox and the Transfers are a mixture of Fox and Railtec.
