Evening Peter,

If someone is paying you to do this you may wish to consider the following:

painting the tops of all the springs black on the side of the chassis rails

It also seems devoid of orange coach lines

The front buffers look to be taking a bit of a nosedive but that could just be the angle of the photo

The person I am doing this for did not want a top quality build as it's going to be on a club layout out the a sort of crowd filler as he has all of my loco builds so I know that he will be happy.

Peter, what make and colour number is the copper paint which you have used for the chimney and steam dome? It looks a very realistic shade and I would like to buy a pot for my future builds.
Thanks, Tony

I did try ammo mig 199 copper but as I was brushing I found it a bit to watery so I used tamiya xf-6 copper which was better.
