MrStationHouse 4" Road Loco

Post  MrStationHouse on Fri 18 Nov 2011, 12:02 pm

Thought it was time I posted some piccy's, I have opted to have all my lining and finish painting done professionally by Adam Meredith who runs Traditional Painting and lining near Cirencester. The pictures don't really show how good a job he makes of them.

He is just sorting the wheels and if they are anything like the others I have seen him do I will be well pleased.

Hi Simon

Great to see you finally posting, another engine to follow progress.

I have seen Adam's website before, he does some excellent work and only young too. If I remember rightly he received an award from the UK Transport Trust for preserving the traditional paintiing and lining techniques. I urge others to take a look at his work on the website, pintriping is a wonderful skill to have and watch being done freehand.

What stage are you up to in the build, what kit are you on right now?

Cheers

Brian

Hi Brian

Thanks for the reply, I think you are right he did win that award.

I am on kit 7, Adam has the wheels for painting at the moment and I am getting to grips with the tender. It is a real advantage to follow as a lot of the issues have been thought through. When I brought the perch and axle assembly back yesterday and put it all together I realised that progress is being made!

I must admit I did get fed up of wheels. Now I have mastered putting pictures up will add some more today.

Best wishes
Simon

Very nice to see others appearing. Keep up the good work.

Tender moments = lots of nuts and bolts.

Tender moments = lots of nuts and bolts.

Belly tank = at least twice as many and far more difficult to get to. If you got fed up with wheels you'll sure hate rivets bolts by the end of those two Smile Smile

Razz Razz You can say that again, I went from the tender straight to the belly tank, you should have seen my face when I opened the belly tank to see all those bolts looking back at me. I think I spent 10 weekends just doing 3mm nuts up. Now it seems a long distance memory (bit like the first girlfriend) when you look back it was not that bad.....who am I kidding I hated it Sad Sad

Not quite that long. I took a full weekend and 2 evenings to do the belly tank. Tender was done in 1 weekend in the kitchen.
Small set of snipe nose pliers with good teeth to hold the rivet bolt while tightening. No problem.
