O Gauge Painting and Weathering

These models were all made or purchased by Graham – I have just painted and weathered them.

SM32 Loco and Wagons

Over the last few days I have been painting and weathering stock for Graham – all were made by him and I just finished them off.

Stock for a potential new layout – possibly a sand and gravel option.

Loco

This Loco has been painted and weathered without the chassis due to wheel issues.

This was a very complicated project, but I am happy with the result – I hope Graham is!

Weathering – SENTINAL – Lime and Cargo wagons.

Its late February and this is what is probably the last weathering session of the month. Today is the best day for a while to spray and varnish so I took full advantage.

O Gauge Weathering (Feb 2020)

Yesterday I weathered three Loco’s – one for Colin and two for my Morlock Heath Layout.

Colin’s Dapol Sentinal

The Loco has been re-named and given a light РMedium Weathering as well as extra coal in the hopper. It is DCC Sound fitted by Coastal  DCC Ipswich. It is appearing a Milton Keynes Model Railway Exhibition this weekend.IMG_1130

Two Dapol 08 Shunters for Morlock Heath.

These 08’s have already appeared on this site before weathering. Now they have had a medium weathering in preparation for an appearance at March Model Railway Exhibition on March 14th.

Dapol Y1 Sentinal in O Gauge.

I purchased two of these Loco’s from a well known ‘Box Shifter’¬† – they were advertised as ‘Y3’ which is what I wanted. I wish I had done my research first before purchasing!! When they arrived I realised the mistake, they were Y1. I left one as No.39 as It was an East Anglian Loco, being based at both Lowestoft and Cambridge. and changed the second one to No.4 which was a Doncaster Loco, a bit out of my modelled area!

Both Loco’s had their buffer beams painted red as prototype. And both had real coal added to the hopper.

No.39 had a modified coal hopper side, so the model is not strictly correct.

The O Gauge Fox Transfers I used on No.4 are to large – I would suggest buying OO as they are nearer the correct size.

I hope to correct them at a later date.

Latest Dapol O8 in O Gauge

I purchased this Loco with a number already in place, however when it arrived and I started to do some research I found a better ‘local’ example. I removed the original number and added my selected one, 08834.

This loco had a slightly different handrail system than the original model, plus an extra one on the nose end. I modified them to what was required. I also added the ‘Speedlink’ flashes and cast BR Logo to the cab ends.
